The Best Yes
Work through our nineteenth, past #P31OBS (on your own or with friends) on Lysa TerKeurst's book, "The Best Yes." *There is a big difference between saying yes…
Is your schedule dictated by the requests and endless demands that rush at you each day? When more requests come, do you ever dread saying yes but feel powerless to say no? If we want things about our lives to change, we have to change the way we use the two most powerful words: yes and no. #TheBestYes
“When I can feel an argument brewing, I have to remember my goal is to tackle the issue not the person. When I set out to prove I’m right, it always leads to conflict escalation. When I set out to improve the relationship, it leads to conflict resolution. It isn’t always easy, but it is so much better to throw out a gentle question rather than a bitter, condemning statement.” - Lysa TerKeurst. #TheBestYes
In Matthew 5:14, we’re instructed to be the light to those around us. This is His plan. God wants us to let our light shine. This is His will. When we get in the habit of obeying His instruction, we’ll develop a keen awareness of His direction. The more we pay attention to these moment-by-moment instructions, the more our thinking starts to line up with God. Our mind gets in a new rhythm of seeing what He wants us to see, so that we can do what He wants us to do.
