When I first met my husband, it was in passing. I felt God say YES, but I said no.
No, he’s too old.
No, he’s too corporate.
No, I’m not ready.
Yes, he was attractive, smart, confident, and pretty much everything I wanted but I was too broken to see it. I was young and still unsure about my identity in Christ and what I truly needed in a spouse. I quickly learned that ignoring God's YES was the reason why I was hitting a no in every relationship following.
The next year my husband and I reconnected again at work. He asked me on a date and this time I relinquished my NO and gave him a YES. That was the last first date I ever had. Here we are 10 years and four kids later and we’re still saying yes to each other.
I know we are in a month of saying NO, but as I mentioned on our kickoff call this is more about your YES. When you decide what deserves your YES, the NOs will follow.
When I said yes to my husband, I was saying NO TO:
· a cycle of toxic relationships
· settling and not knowing my value
· being closeminded
· being a forever girlfriend
· generational curses
My yes, reshaped my NO. As we embrace the second half of November, I encourage you to evaluate your YES. The right yes, can change your entire life.
What a difference a YES makes!
