Have you ever had something you’ve been thinking of doing?

“Should I? I don’t really have time. I shouldn’t. But . . . but I want to. No, I shouldn’t. But maybe I should force myself. No. Don’t. Time just isn’t there. BUT I REALY WANT TO!”

Have you then had something pop up that encouraged you to finally do what you’ve thought of doing? However, you still don’t have that full 100% ‘YES’ swimming around in your mind.

That is until something finally hit you. The word YES is highlighted, underlined, with an exclamation point attached.

That is exactly what It’s been like for me. Something has caused me to finally do that one thing I’ve been pondering on. A song is what encouraged me to go ahead and underline that ‘YES’. What’s funny is that a song has encouraged me to talk about, well . . . SONGS!

I can’t explain it all right now but I plan to share a bit more tomorrow. Notice I said ‘tomorrow’ which is a clue to what this is about. But for now, listen to this song, and see if you can tell why I’ve decided to let ‘YES’ win. After all, we’re stronger than we think we are. There’s a thunder rolling in our hearts. Pushing up against the dark. Yes, we’re stronger than we think.

Do you ever ask yourself if you should do something you keep telling yourself you want to do? If you lean towards doing it, Just don’t do it alone. You might be surprised. God might be wanting to do it right along with you.

  1. This is wonderful! I’m sure it’s not the song you were quoting, but now I have Garth Brookes stuck in my head. 😛 Dropping by from FMF, mainly because we both have the same shade of purple in our linky buttons. Because that has to be a good sign, right?

  2. You had me at “Have you ever had something you’ve been thinking of doing.” Oh. My. Word. And contained in the answer to that question is – Yes. And that’s why I am even committing to 31 days of 5-minute free write. I am confident of your final line. “God might be wanting to do it right along with you.” Thank you for being my first day “You can do it” coach.
