[saying no]

[saying no]

Wrote this a couple of nights ago, but since I already posted something that day, this had to wait… Thankfully, I am feeling better now than I was feeling back then, but I still wanted to share this… I feel like David sometimes he was writing his psalms. I am not claiming to be him, but I can certainly relate to his feelings when he thought everything was against him yet God always was there to support him and be the wind beneath the wings.

Everyone tells me “Learn to say ‘no'”
But how can I?

“The need does not equal to a call”
Good quote… But who will do the job?

Or maybe I am just so proud of my abilities
That I cannot refuse do “that one more thing”?

I think I am going to crash,
Crash badly.

Engines are whining and striving,
Yet the air cannot carry the weight.
Like an airplane, I am due for a Tarmac.

Will I crash or will I land?
Only God knows because He is the wind that carries me.

  • This is really pretty. And an amazingly good lesson to learn.

    • Thank you, Michael… it was one of those "I-just-need-to-write" kind of posts…

  • My dear Zee: I think your title says it all: "learn.to.say.no" to some things, even negative talk from others about you.

    • heh… a friend of mine recently remarked "God gave you so much… yet He did not teach you to say no."

      saying no is a hard thing for me. i don't know why, Bill. i know it is a right thing to do to say no sometimes, but…. *sigh* my kiddos are probably gonna be sooo spoiled 😀 (but then, i'll have a hubby to keep the kids and myself rooted in real world – hahaha)))))

      thanks for stopping by, brother.
