When I Need to Say “No”
Hi God. I’m desperately overcommitted, super busy, and totally stressed out!
I know it’s my own fault. I just keep saying “yes” to people, even when I don’t really want to do what they’re asking me to do.
Sometimes, I think I just agree because I’m afraid of the repercussions of saying no. What if they don’t like me anymore? Or what if I get left out of things in the future?
I have to start seeing the value of what a simple “no” does for me—for my peace, for my relationship with you, and for the future you’ve intended for me.
What are some things I need to say “no” to, right now?
What are some things I’m not, totally, sure about?
How do I say “no” to those who are close to me without hurting their feelings?
“No” can be a great word. It can keep me from wasting my time and energy; precious time and energy that I could be spending with you!
From now on, I won’t let others control me. Instead, I’ll let you, God, lead me!
