How To Say No When You Need To

My one word for 2015 is... NO. 

It's hard for me to say this word to others and to myself. My goal is to live on God's purpose - undistracted by the opinions of others or the cares of this world. I want to be excellent at what He has entrusted to me. 

Like Nehemiah who refused to stop working on the wall to meet with Sanballot, sometimes NO is a big YES to an abundant life. 

“I am doing a great work and I cannot come down. Why should the work stop while I leave it and come down to you?” - Nehemiah 6:3

Christian author Lysa TerKeurst was on the Today Show and shared some practical tips on how saying 'no' means saying 'yes' to better things. Hope this encourages you to say YES to better things!
