I am so tired of saying "no" most of the time because I feel incapable, doubtful, fearful, or lazy. This year I want to say "yes" as much as I can to things that will challenge me, stretch me, and cause me to grow spiritually, emotionally, and physically. I know I will be yanked out of my comfort zone, but honestly, my comfort zone has gotten boring.
I still have some health limitations that will require me to say "no," but my hope is that I will break out of the habit of automatically saying "no" and get into the habit of saying "yes" instead, even though my knees might be knocking and my heart might be resisting.
I am sure that the capable, believing, confident person I once was is still inside me -- I just have to remove the rubble under which she is buried and set her free.
"I can do all things through Christ, who strengthens me." Philippians 4:13
