"No, I cannot help with _____________. This is a difficult season of my life. I’m having to be still and quiet before the Lord, trusting in his plan over mine, and this means having to say no to things I would normally say yes to…"
I spoke these words to a woman today. In pursuit of quietness, I have said no to leading Bible studies, facebook, over-working myself, tv shows, & extra activities. Having said no to so much, I have been able to say yes to praying continually, falling in love with the word, and deeper intimacy with my Father.
While waiting in line at TJ Maxx I held three books in my arms; I Love You, I Love You Little One, and Baby Love for a friend’s soon delivery. As I waited in line, my heart started yearning for a child to read I Love You books to at bedtime. The Lord was quick to remind me of this verse and I was quickly comforted in the moment.
