When God Says No [Yes]

by

“For as many as are the promises of God, in Him they are yes; therefore also through Him is our Amen to the glory of God through us.”

2 Corinthians 1:20

We were running errands.

My 5-year-old son was in his spot in the back seat chatting away, mostly asking me for stuff.

“Mommy, can I have …?”

“Mommy, can you take me …?”

“Mommy, can we go to …?”

You know that place somewhere between kids being so adorably cute and totally driving you bananas?

Yup. I was there.

Every answer to his questions was “No.”

I was on autopilot: No. No. No.

Then that boy of mine said …

“Mommy, I wish that every time you said ‘no’ you really meant ‘yes.’ That would be more funner.”

“You mean that I would always mean the opposite of what I actually said?”

“YES! Just like that! Come on Mommy let’s p-r-a-c-t-i-c-e.”
