The Architecture of “Yes”
Yes. A three letter word that can change your world. I’ve been reading the blogs of several people that just returned from a mission trip to the Dominican Republic. Melanie was able to meet the child that she sponsors through Compassion. Melanie relates that the child asked one question of her, “Can I go home with you?” A simple question with a “yes” or “no” answer. It made me ponder how even saying “yes” to that trip was a life-changing decision.
In our busy, fast-paced culture, people are often reminded that they need to say “No” more often. But it’s the “yeses” that mold our days, shape our years and determine our destiny.
The “yes” said in a covenant commitment to love, honor and cherish one person for all the days of your life.
The “yes” to an opportunity to move to a different city or take a new job that alters your life in unimagined ways.
The “yes” to help someone in need that leaves a permanent imprint on your heart.
The small yes as well as the big YES that all become the architecture of our lives.
It makes me think hard about what I will say “yes” to this week.
