Thank You for Saying No

by on August 23, 2011

Lord, day after day I’ve thanked You for saying “yes” to my prayers. But when have I genuinely thanked You for saying, “no”?

I’m scared to imagine all of the mess and heartache my life would have gone through had You not been so loving and wise to say, “no”.

So thank you for saying, “no” when my “Want List” for things far exceeded my longing for You.

To my foolish prayer of, “just this one time Jesus…” Thank You for saying, “no” to the stupid excuses of selfish motives and dangerous diversions.

Thank You for saying, “no” when the temptation that was enticing me would have bound me for life!

Thank You for saying, “no” when I asked you to leave me alone.

Above all else, thank You for saying, “no” when I asked You, “if I give You everything else, may I keep this?”

Lord Jesus, I am completely humbled, and always overwhelmed when I stop and think of how You have loved, cared and protected me with this simple little word, “no” – I am forever grateful & eternally indebted to You Jesus.

Have you thanked HIM today for saying, “no”? Maybe You should.

Expect a Miracle,
J Garcia
