Say "yes"

I want to share another woman's words with you today, because they really spoke to my heart.
"No Greater Joy" is a blog that I follow. Here is an excerpt:

"...it's just as well God only reveals today to us--one tiny second at a time. We're not meant to know tomorrow. We're not meant to understand next week. When we place our lives at His feet and surrender all into the Potter's faithful hands, tomorrow is HIS concern, not ours.

...If there's one thing that I have learned as God has gently led us down such an uncertain road over the past year, it's to be ready to say "yes" when He calls our name. In season, and out of season too. Be ready to say yes when we feel like we have life all figured out and all of our sweet ducks in a row. Be ready to say yes when we feel so content with the way life currently is and we don't want it any other way. Be ready to say yes when all things are wonderful and we cannot imagine life any more beautiful.

And be ready to say yes when we cannot see our way out of the thickest forest...but we know that He is near. Because a simple yes spoken in obedience is worth so much more than any earthly wealth or great gain."
