The power of NO!

I have so many things to be thankful for - family and friends are close to the top! However the thing I am most thankful for are the times God told me "NO"! I was not thankful for them at the time - but His "NOs" led me to where I am today - Scott, Jon, Daniel, being a teacher, wonderful in-loves, a great relationship with my Mom and Dad, a wonderful sister and her precious family and for new dreams that are slowly being revealed.

"Thank God for saying NO!

• “No” doesn’t mean the world comes to an end. It simply means not now, not yet, not necessary, or not in your best interest

• If you wait for what your heart desires, you treasure it more when you finally do get it.

• Kicking and screaming and having a bad attitude while you wait is no fun for you or for those around you.

• Getting the thing you want might be the worst thing for you.
I thank God for the nos and the not yets in my life. Though they may not be what I want, they are exactly what I need. God is getting me ready to receive the promised Land……..
God’s dream must be experienced God’s way. If you settle for anything else, you’ll never be satisfied.

“Yet the Lord longs to be gracious to you; he rises to show you compassion. For the Lord is a God of justice. Blessed are all who wait for Him!” (Isaiah 30:18)"
