share 1 whisper yes

Two years ago I started a journey.

I was so hungry.

Spiritually hungry for faith that would change the world around me. That would change me. That wasn’t dictated by theology, but intimacy.

I woke up in the night wrestling with this desire.

Have you ever been there?

Are you there now?

That journey led me to sit in the book of Luke for nearly two years. I nearly laughed out loud when my new home church started a study in Luke, one that went on for over a year.

I was surrounded by the words of Luke.

I sat daily with Jesus and the disciples.

I started to listen to them, really listen, for they had no idea where Jesus was taking them,

He said, “Come with me,” and they responded with a yes.

That “yes” didn’t stick at first with one. It surprised another. It felt right to two brothers, who thought it meant that they were special.

Boy, did they all have a lot to discover.

Which is exactly what happened as I began to say yes to the invitation Jesus issues.

Does Jesus still ask us to follow him today?

Absolutely, and when we say yes, it has the power to completely change the way we view our faith, and the way we seek our Savior and the way we love people.

When I was about half-way through the book of Luke, I started to understand something about myself.

You see, I know that God asks us to follow him in a thousand different ways. Sometimes the call to “come with me” takes us into more challenging areas. When that happened — before this journey — I listened. I prayed. I sought wise counsel. I weighed it.

To be honest, that can look really spiritual on the outside, but the Holy Spirit began to show me that it was my way of delaying my yes.

If I knew it was God, why wouldn’t I just say yes?

That changed. I learned that if He says, “Come with me,” no matter what it is, it’s my privilege to say yes.

Right then.

No matter where it leads.

No matter what He asks.

It’s natural that no slips in. It’s natural to want to linger over a decision, and sometimes that’s exactly what we need to do.

Except for when we know that it’s God and He is asking us to take that leap of faith.

Whisper yes where no wants to take root

Are you hungry for more in your relationship with God?

Do you long for your faith to make a difference, especially to those within reach?

Do you want to walk with Jesus in such a way that you are forever changed?

Whisper yes to that invitation. 

I can honestly say that I have never felt more rested, more alive, or more challenged in my faith, but what I truly love is the truth that I’ve discovered:

The real adventure is walking with Jesus every single day.
