How One Simple Word Changed My Life

It's amazing how many words we can create out of 26 letters. But, what is even more amazing, is how many of those words can have an effect on our lives. They say that it is the littlest things in life that matter the most. However, what most people don't realize is that saying this one little thing can make the biggest impact; the word yes. And I don't mean saying yes to extra whipped cream on top of your frappuccino. I mean saying yes to the one who made it all possible; God.

God. The Almighty Creator of the Heavens and the Earth. The one who created you and me. The one who breathed life into us so that we may have the choice of life everlasting. And my answer was yes.

Saying yes to God has not been easy. It has had its challenges and it has had its rewards. But, the biggest reward of it all, is realizing that I can turn to God with all of my transgressions, problems, issues, and blessings, and know that He is always going to be to be there by my side to help guide me through this hectic thing that we call life.

God is not there to judge me. He is there to love and encompass me with all of His wisdom. Without God in my life, I do not know what I would have done. I have gone through some pretty tough times and I still am. God knows that I am not perfect and that I will make mistakes, but He is always there to catch me when I fall.

There is this feeling that I have when I can feel Gods presence in my life that is so indescribable that it literally brings me to tears because of how moved I am by Him. To know that He has created me in His image so that I may do great things and fulfill this plan that He has for me is nerve-wracking, scary, terrifying, but most of all, it is a blessing.

Every single day when I wake up, the most important thing that I look forward to is to live for Christ because he has created these days so that we may rejoice and be glad in them. Not only that, but I am also no longer afraid to die. I was afraid to die before because I thought after I died, that was it. There was nothing else past death. But, now I look forward to death because that means that I get to endure in life everlasting. However, I would not have realized any of this if I did not say this one simple three lettered word; yes.

Saying yes has changed my life for the better and I can not wait to see how else it will shape my life.
