As I began pouring over this amazing book, a shockwave went through my body as I read Isaiah 30:21.
YES! This is truly the verse I need at the moment...hopefully it's exactly what you need, too.
And when I mentioned it to my incredibly talented friend Lydia, she said she'd love to draw it out for us!
(Lydia's online shop Quiller Whale Lettering is amazing. Check it out!)
Toward the beginning of the book, Lysa TerKeurst says,
"We must not confuse the command to love with the disease to please. And it's not just because of the vicious cycles of people pleasing, although that's part of it. I miss Best Yes opportunities sometimes because I simply don't know they're part of the equation."
"I get all twisted up in making the division to check either the Yes or No box, not realizing there is a third box that reads Best Yes."
She goes on to say, "The one who obeys God's instruction for today will develop a keen awareness of His direction for tomorrow."
So I encourage you...place this verse on your phone's lock screen or wallpaper (this month, you can also print it out!) and take these words to heart. Our Father in heaven IS walking with us.
Let us tune into Him as we go about our day. So that when He says, "this is the way; walk in it" we will be ready and feel His urging.
Note: these lock screen and printable images will be emailed on Friday...to those who Subscribe to Hugs & Punches via email. Haven't done it yet? It's not too late!
