Saying Yes

I am linking up for the Five Minute Friday. The FMF is hosted by Kate Motaung on her blog Heading Home. Today’s prompt is “Yes.” Write for five minutes; unedited.

Saying yes is graduating college and realizing that God is calling you to seminary.

Saying yes is hearing God call you to a new path; to a new venture.

Saying yes is trying something new.

Saying yes is getting to move into my own house for the first time.

Saying yes is taking on the Write 31 Days challenge for the first time and sharing our family’s story of a mental illness.

Saying yes is meeting so many new wonderful blog friends because I decided to participate in the challenge for the first time.

Saying yes is going on a sister’s trip with my sister and also getting to finally meet some blog friends in real life.

Saying yes is sometimes saying no so that I can spend time with dear friends and family.

Saying yes is asking others to pray.

Saying yes is living out my one word 365 for the word: brave.
And in being brave, I am hearing God call me to new brave adventures.

Saying yes is getting to hang out with my dear girlfriends on my birthday tonight.
Saying yes is laughing and crying and just simply being me with those friends.

Saying yes is treasuring yet another year of life and celebrating who I am and who God has called me to be in this time and place.

And sometimes saying yes is listening to where God might be leading me next.

What is God calling you to say “yes” too?

Yes, No or Wait!!

Jesus will hold your heart.

These words shared with me by my friend DB are echoing in my heart, head and mind as I wonder what God is calling me to.

Am I going to meet my Mr. Right? Am I suppose to adopt?
Or do foster care?

Really I have more questions than answers these days.

I know that God hears my every prayer. But as a friend reminded me, God often says Yes, No or Wait!!

What, wait? God doesn’t always give an answer all the time. I know that but sometimes that is so hard to hear especially when you are waiting for God to answer your prayer. I want an answer other than simply wait.
