Just say Yes....because His Plan is always better

I didn’t want to run this morning, but I did. It was an act of obedience to the promise I’ve made myself. It was also a lesson in Faith.

Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.
1 Corinthians 6:19-20 (NIV)

The lesson in Faith part? We have to keep our promises, as best we are able. God does. So, despite being weary, despite just not wanting to….I pledged to Just say Yes.

I selected a different soundtrack than the one I’m accustomed to running to, and it didn’t make the run any easier. However, when I was close to giving up, Yolanda Adams sang me through…

"In The Midst Of It All"

I've come through many hard trials
Through temptations on every hand
Though Satan's tried to stop me
And to place my feet on sinking sand
Through the pain and all of my sorrows
Through tears and all of my fears
The Lord was there to keep me
For He's kept me in the midst of it all

Not because I've been so faithful
Not Because I've always obeyed
It's not because I trust him
To be with me all of the way
But it's because He loves me so dearly
He was there to answer my call
There always to protect me
For He's kept me in the midst of it all

I've come through many hard trials
Through temptations on every hand
Though Satan's tried to stop me
And to place my feet on sinking sand
Because Jesus loves me dearly
He was there to answer my call
There always to protect me
For He's kept me in the midst of it all

No He's never left me
And He' never let me fall
Oh yes He will protect you
For He's kept me in the midst of it all

Yes, He kept me
Yes, Jesus kept me
Jesus kept me, in the midst of it all
For He's kept me in the midst of it all

Not only did she put me in a new headspace, there was a moment when I didn’t know whether I was going to run or shout (in the Spirit…I think I did both).

I’ve committed to my Faith. I’ve committed to just saying Yes, to trusting without complaint, to believing God’s Way instead of any illusion about my own capacity.


I’m grateful I completed my run. I’m grateful to have not given up. I am grateful to Him, because His Plans are Always Better.
