I don't know about you, but lately I've been asking... "Am I headed in the right direction?", "Am I making the right decisions?". I'm in a phase of life that brings with it MORE...
*more financial responsibility
*more freedom to choose what I will do with my time
*more thoughts about what the 'second half' of life will bring
I need WISDOM. Solomon asked God for it. He could have asked for ANYTHING. He asked for WISDOM. And God gave it to him... and MUCH MORE!
A friend recommended a book, THE BEST YES by Lysa Terkeurst... She also invited me to the online 6 week bible study hosted by Proverbs 31. I immediately said yes - it was something we could 'do together' even though we live too far apart :-)! It was on Monday nights... hmmm. I already have regular scheduled meetings on Monday nights... already OVERWHELMED by my hasty yes! No problem... I'll just catch up with the archives... on another night of the week... problem solved! Except that my only free night was taken with working late at the office... for the next six weeks!
Does this sound like you... You know you NEED this time in His Word... on a particular need in your life... and there is just NO TIME to make it happen... that isn't at 5a or after midnight!
If so, then I invite you, like me, to walk through the archives on this study of THE BEST YES... I know... I'm already fighting back the thought... "If there is a BEST YES, then there must also be a BEST NO!"... I don't do NO very well... but I must... for this one thought has captured my heart...
A woman who lives with the stress of an OVERWHELMED SCHEDULE will often ACHE WITH THE SADNESS OF AN UNDERWHELMED SOUL..
Jesus said, "Let your Yes be Yes, and Your No be No, anything else is from the evil one." Matthew 5:17
