I have been hearing the word ‘Yes’ in my time with the Lord. I believe God is saying yes to the plans He has for me. He is saying yes to the thoughts, hopes, and desires for pursuing His plans for my life. God is saying yes to you today! Yes to taking a step of faith toward the plans He has for you!
It could be a goal you have, a change you want to make in your life, or a dream that God has put in your heart. Now is the time to move toward those things.
I went back to school to finish my degree in 2012. At the end of 2011 I had started thinking about the dream of finishing my degree and I knew I would regret it if I never finished.
I wrote the things I needed to do to start back to school. I talked to my husband and to my closest friend about my plans. I graduated in 2014! I am so thankful that I decided to pursue that plan.
I have always dreamed of recording the songs that God has given me. Over the past 3 years I have written so many songs that I have started to feel like I just had to do something with them. I believe that God spoke to me about recording a worship album, and now is the time to do it!
After encouragement from some close friends, I decided to write out the steps I needed to take to make this happen. I felt so different after writing it out! That was the end of May of this year! Now I am in the middle of my first worship album! God moved for me once I took steps to pursue His plans!
I encourage you to listen to the ‘Yes’ that God is speaking over your plans and dreams. Go for it!
Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans and thoughts that I have for you,’ says the Lord, ‘plans for peace and well-being and not for disaster; to give you a future and a hope.’
Yes! He cares about every detail our lives. He wants to bless us and fulfill every promise in His word. Believe it! God wants to bless you with good things!
When He promised Abraham and Sarah that they would have a son, He said:
Genesis 17:16 I will bless her, and indeed I will also give you a son by her. Yes, I will bless her, and she shall be a mother of nations; kings of peoples will come from her.”
God desires to bless us and fulfill the promises He has given. Say Yes to His promise for your life!
