What to Expect When You Say “YES” to God

“So, how old do you think you’ll be when you fully settle down with God?” my friend Reggie asked.

It was my junior year in college, we’d just finished another successful game night with friends and he decided to stay a little longer to help clean up.

Pausing for a minute, I thought about his question and responded, “Hmmm, I don’t know maybe when I’m about 23.” 

I figured because I was in college I needed to live a little and the Lord would understand. 

Smiling at my response, we continued to chat about our future and what things would look like after college. 

Once he left, I remember thinking to myself, only Reggie could ask me that question and I wouldn’t get offended. I mean– he was the only man I knew in his 20s engaged,  serious about his relationship with God, but would vibe to a 2Chainz or Trinidad James song real quick.

As I sit back and think about that night I can’t help, but think about how God truly slide into that conversation and even changed the ending to MY story. 

You see, my goal was to live out my life the way I wanted to and slide God in when I could. A Sunday service here and a communion session there. 

I mean, can I be real?

However, God had other plans for my life. The two years that followed turned out to be the purge of my life.

I said YES

I lost loved ones,  friendships ended, relationships dissolved, and my emotions went ramped. Through it all though, I was able to go back to my first love—Father God, who accepted me with open arms. 

And, He made me His number one follower the following year once I surrendered.

The Choice is Yours

So, if you’ve decided to finally take a stance and follow God, I want you to know you’ve made the greatest decision of your life! 

If you’re still thinking about it or you’re on the fence, meet me here.

You no longer have to sit on the sideline any longer but sis you can join the game.  He has so much in store for you. 

I will admit this journey is not for the weak, however, because you’re a queen of the Most High, He has a set of tools just for you to fight with when the enemy comes your way. 

That is why this week’s passage is Ephesians 6:10-18.

As you carry out the remainder of this week I encourage you to follow along with the Come Up season right here because next week, I’ll dig even deeper into what you can expect when you say yes to God! See you then!
