The Power of "YES"
What do you think is the most powerful word in the world?
I was thinking about this recently, and I came to realize that there is one word that I would argue is the most powerful. That word...is YES!
It was one woman's YES that changed the ENTIRE WORLD! If that's not powerful...I don't know what is.
I think we underestimate our "yes" sometimes, and we don't realize how much of an impact it can have. We see it when it comes to those big "yes" moments, like accepting a job offer or during an engagement proposal.
But what about our small, daily "yes"?
I know I am not the only one who has been caught in moments when we beg God in prayer, "What do you want me to do? God just tell me where you want me to go!" Sometimes, his answer is "I want you to stay right here."
Ooooo boy! That is probably the last answer we want to hear, because we feel stuck or unproductive when we are not moving. What I came to realize was, a movement forward doesn't need to always be a big leap. Sometimes it is just one step.
Today, as you start your day, I encourage you to ask God where he needs your small "yes". Maybe it's doing an extra chore at home, maybe it's wishing a stranger a good day, maybe it's reaching out to a friend you haven't talked to in a while, or maybe it's just doing those daily, routine and sometimes mundane tasks but doing them with extra love and care.
Never underestimate the power of your "YES"!
