Default The blessing in NO!

ďThe blessing in NO!Ē by Lakisha J

You may not recognize this but thereís a blessing in the no and the not yet. I know itís easy for me to say when I am on the outside looking in but think about it. When God tells us no, itís to test your faith and usually because He has something greater. When the bank turned you down, it made you grind harder to clear your name and your credit. When folk closed the door on you, it made you hustle harder to ensure the next door was yours. When they said you couldnít do it, it gave you the extra push you needed to prove them wrong. When he said youíd never make it, you did just so heíd see it for himself from afar. When she said youíd never amount to nothing, you made sure you did and even smiled when she congratulated you. Thereís power in NO. You knew you couldnít afford that car, the blessing was being turned down. You knew you werenít ready for that promotion and the no gave you time to get yourself together. That eviction, repossession or foreclosure allowed you to see God working. Baby, you were blessed when that relationship didnít work out and because they denied you, you met your Ďreal thang.í

This is why I say thereís a blessing in the no and the not yet. Stop forcing something thatís not meant. Stop searching for stuff that you know isnít yours. Stop trying to get back what has left. See the blessing in the no and the not yet because itís there. Affirm todayÖ I, (your name), by the power of the living God, declare that today I will no longer chase what isnít mine. Today, I, (your name), shall no longer be held captive by the word no for I will embrace the blessing in it. Today, I will no longer hang my head in shame but Iíll rejoice in knowing, itís not my time yet. Today, I will not be afraid of hearing no. Today, Iíll take the no and the not yet, only because I know the kinks are being worked out of my YES! Today, Iíll see the blessing in no, not yet and even goodbye because I know Godís delay does not mean denial.
