Consider your words and thoughts when you say yes or no. For the most part, we may mean “yes” but not realize what we are saying with our “no” at the same time. “No” is just as important to our decisions as “yes;” but we must recognize why “no” is vital and should be seen as finality to some things. Let’s take a moment to talk about yes and no.
How many times have we said yes and maybe really wanted to say no? Perhaps our no was meant to be yes. Does all this sound confusing, well now you can see how many others may be experiencing these same things when they are in a place of decision. Perhaps they want to face something and be clear in their yes and no but the thought of saying the wrong things clouds their judgement in answering. This takes sincerity and tactic in our communication.
If you said no, and yet you find yourself still doing what you said no to, then did you really mean it? It’s of the utmost importance that you let your yes be yes and your no be no because if you don’t, you will experience great difficulties in how people will respect you and believe your words. A very important life lesson is to mean what you say and always say what you mean. If you can do what is being asked of you and you want to, then say yes and mean it with all your heart. But when you honestly do not want to have anything to do with it, then let your no be just as clear.
We can decide that we know what we want to say but due to peer pressure, not wanting to let someone down or appear as indifference that we really now have to do opposite of how we feel about our choice. This is really our own doing and we must get to the place that we do what is best for us and what we truly have peace doing. Otherwise, we will live in regret, discontentment and waste time doing perhaps some things that we hate and will have no benefits personally.
I highly recommend that you decide today that you will no longer live in the balance of two worlds of both yes and no. Rather choose wisely and decide that you will do what you are doing with a strong yes or a confident no. Don’t allow what you consider would only be good for everyone else and never consider how your choice can affect yourself. Take it all before God in prayer and allow His peace to be your guide on a daily basis as a believer.
Let me hear from you. What decisions have greatly affected you? What effects did you face when you meant no but said yes or vice versa? These comments and life experiences can help others.
