*On Thursdays at Faith Barista, Bonnie Gray serves up a writing prompt and invites bloggers to join her in writing on a specific topic. Today’s prompt is simply: YES.*
*This post is also a continuation of my blogging through my God-sized dream. For previous posts in the dream series, please see the titles under “God-Sized Dreaming” please click here.*
So, I put the book down.
That one I was wrestling with? Attempting to extract freedom from? It’s shelved.
To stuffing myself into a preconceived mold, I’m saying no.
To forcing myself down a path that will result in unnecessary turbulence, I’m saying no.
To traditional methods, I’m saying no.
To battling, I’m saying no.
So I can say yes to better.
To leaning in close, listening for the path my Jesus has for me, I’m saying yes.
To releasing control to Him, I’m saying yes.
To accepting that He is answering my prayer to be gentle with me, I’m saying yes.
To resting in the idea that His healing for me is more like pieces of a puzzle than a straight line (thank you, Andrea), I’m saying yes.
To identifying the root of my wounds and allowing Him to minister to me there, I’m saying yes.
To learning how to receive His love, I’m saying yes.
To embracing the role of His beloved, I’m saying yes.
To abiding, I’m saying yes.
In the yeses, I’m finding my freedom.
Simply let your ‘Yes’ be ‘Yes,’ and your ‘No,’ ‘No’; anything beyond this comes from the evil one.
Is saying “yes” to something bringing you freedom? What you are saying “no” to? Let’s chat!
