We agreed. We sat on the bed and we agreed that our lives, our whole lives would be “yes”. We had been committed to our faith for 6 months and we decided that we would always say yes to God, no matter where He wanted to take us. It’s pretty glamorous at the time, and exciting to think about where God might take us in our lives. We were young and in love, with each other and with our creator.

Sorrow may last for the night, but joy comes in the morning. Singing, yes Lord, yes Lord, yes, yes Lord.

At times, it has taken great faith to trust in God. To believe that He knows what He’s doing. But so far, He has never failed us.

I think of the verse in Matthew 6 where Jesus talks about the lilies of the field and the birds of the air. He tells us not to worry. I close my eyes and imagine myself as a lily in the field, blown this way and that by the wind, but trusting in my creator. I imagine myself as a bird, gracefully flying through the air. I have no where to store food, but the Lord always feeds me.

    And you are right to reflect and remember that joy really does come in the morning! I’m so thankful for that!

    So right!! He does always feed us. Much like He fed the Israelite’s Manna in the wilderness. Love your words today.

    Dear Chelsey,
    It is certainly in the walking out that faith that can be very challenging. I like how you use a visual of the verse about the Lillies of the Field to remind you of God’s promise of His faithfulness and ability to provide.

    Thank you for sharing. Blessings in Christ…Susan
