Yes To Being Intentional

kerrie-mic-speaking-at-christmas-1I’m saying yes to being intentional.


It’s almost become habitual.

The thing is . . . I set out on the course of intentionality . . . until a distraction causes me to jump off the track, abandoning my good intentions to be intentional.

I’ve learned:  Intentionality opens the door to living with more balance, which leads to what God has intended for life.  Intentionality is focused on the “yes” rather than the “no,”  with the decision to think, speak, and act on only what matters, the things that define the meaning of our life.  It’s easy to begin the process by looking at the negative and hard of life; however, intentionality is about living blessed, which means we begin with the positive and good of life.  In other words, intentionality is not based on circumstances but on what matters.

Christ made it very clear:  Simply let your “yes” be “yes,” and let your “no” be “no”” (Matthew 5:37, Voice).

So.  To be intentional is to courageously and boldly say “yes” to what matters and “no” to the rest.  Simple and to the point.

The first assignment to living intentionally is determining what matters and then, exercising the word, “yes.”  It’s key to living the best life.–Kerrie
