Sometimes- no matter how hard it is for us to accept- God says no, because He has a better yes.
Sometimes God says no about a boyfriend, because He knows that you couldn't control yourself.

Sometimes God says no about a new job, because He knows the ultimate outcome.
Sometimes God says no to close friends, because He knows that you need to rely on Him more.
Sometimes God says no to getting some new clothes, because He knows you don't really need it.

Sometimes God says no to things that we really want. And most of the time, if you are anything like me, that is hard to accept. Last night as I was sitting in bed crying to my mom about petty stuff that is going on in my life, she told me that "sometimes God says no, because He has a better yes."

How true is that?

So often I want to settle for just the good. I want to do things my own way, because I think it is the best way. But God... He is all-knowing. He knows the outcome of every situation in my life. I try to deal with it on my own, but what I really need to do, is give it to God.

You know what the awesome thing about giving your life to God is? In return, you receive this amazing peace, that transcends above all else. You are okay. Life is okay. God is faithful, and He doesn't want you to carry all the burdens of your life on your own!

Numbers 6:24-26 (New International Version)

24 " ' "The LORD bless you
and keep you;

25 the LORD make his face shine upon you
and be gracious to you;

26 the LORD turn his face toward you
and give you peace." '

God's peace is an amazing, comforting gift. I will post more about this on Monday!

Your Sister in Christ,
