When it Hurts to Say No

Maybe I am the problem.
Maybe the thing that brings me here has more to do with what I am doing than what I expect.
Am I an enabler? Am I really the weak one that seems to always give in when instead I should say “no”?

Maybe this is more about me.
Maybe the thing they do is because it has become a normal behavior I taught them over time.
Did I create this irritation in my life? Am I not the parent I should have been by taking the easy way and not anticipating consequences?

Maybe today is the day I will turn things around.
There is never a good time that works or is more convenient to tell this person whom I love what I must.
Will my decision be good for both of us? Does it matter that it will hurt some people?

I am hoping for all of us to come out stronger. All things in God’s hands. Can we ever come to a better understanding?
God asks us to let go of things and situations and even those we love so He can do a good work in them and in our own self.

Be strong and courageous because the way things are right now, ask yourselves, “Is it working?”

“I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength.” (Phillipians 4:13)

Now retired from my sewing business yet all about the business of serving my family and creating things to sell in my store. I love to have some purpose left in me. I hope I can encourage others and bring the light of Jesus most of all to this dark world.
