One of the things I noticed in researching and writing about the lives of 50 Christian women was just how many of these women refused to take “no” for an answer.
I think sometimes as Christians, and particularly as Christian women, we assume “no” is the last word. We hear “no,” and we wonder if we’ve misinterpreted our calling or taken a wrong turn on the path. In the word “no” we often hear a reprimand. We wonder if it’s a sign signaling that we’ve strayed.
But what if “no” is not, in fact, the final word? What if the “no” we hear is simply a God-ordained detour?
…I’m over at one of my very favorite author’s place today, my good friend Jennifer Dukes Lee! Join me over there to talk about when no doesn’t mean no? [and thank you, thank you for your patience as I send you all over hill and dale these days with guest posts for 50 Women. We’ll be wrapping up the visitations soon – thank you for sticking with me!]
