Never Say Never

As I sat in my room the other day reading my devotions, I found my self looking up and staring at a picture of my four children.

I have to be honest, I just started weeping as I looked at their faces.

As frustrating and sometimes annoying as they can be,  these are four precious lives, God has put in my care ….. wow!.  It gave new meaning to verse  Psalm 127:3

Children are a gift from the Lord, they are a reward from him.

4 children

This past weekend, we heard a great message by our Pastor,  about Never saying Never. It really stood out to me.  Why?,  because I was once that girl who said never a lot, and thought never way too often.

The biggest example in my life, was when my husband and I were going on our fourth year of infertility due to certain medical issues. Thoughts always came into my head, that I would never have children.  Then came the dreaded day when we lost our first baby, a miscarriage at three months…… my lips actually spoke out that children would never enter our lives!.

But, God is so much bigger than even our worse thought. He can work in the most impossible situations, and is able to meet your every heart’s desire!.

Take delight in the Lord,
and he will give you the desires of your heart.   Psalm 37:4

So, I sat there thanking Him for our four blessings. Praying and desiring for them to love God, serve Him and claim Jesus as their saviour.  I KNOW that they are here because of God, and I learned very quickly NEVER to say NEVER, because it was evident in my life.

When situations come up now, that look impossible,  I always think back at how He changed what I thought would never happen, into something that is very real!.

If you are discouraged right now, and having ‘never’ thoughts,  I encourage you to change the way you speak. There is power in the tongue, and we have the ability to speak FAITH!.

Try  NOT to say:

  • My marriage will never change
  • I’ll always be in financial trouble
  • My children will never know the Lord
  • I’ll always have these bad habits and rotten attitudes
  • I’ll never lead anyone to Christ
  • I will never be healed
  • My circumstance will never change

For ‘ All things are possible to those who believe’  Mark 9:23.

Never say NEVER.

  1. very good advice 🙂 my oldest daughter and I were recently discussing how funny it is to hear her saying/doing things she grew up saying she would NEVER do/say. But, now that she is a wife and mother herself, well, she understands so much more.
    I enjoyed your post, thank you!

  2. Never should be an outlawed word, I agree! I can’t tell you how many times I have said “never,” and God had other ideas for me. Often the things I used to be so totally against in terms of serving God, God redicrected and changed my heart. Commenting from the July Blog Hop on Bloggy Moms.

  3. What a lovely family. My husband and I were married 10 years before we were blessed with children. It’s extremely difficult to say positive when faced with overwhelming odds. Never say never is good advice when it comes to God!

  4. I agree “never” is a dirty little word. Unless you use it for phrases like “I will never quit”… it should be avoided. We speak blessings and curses from our own lips and even with our own thoughts. But it is hard to change our words until we truly believe that all of God’s blessings are for us not just some of them. Thanks for the post I found your blog from the Bloggy Moms Blog Hop.

  6. I saw the title to your post at Thriving Thursdays and simply had to visit. I can’t tell you the times I’ve said NEVER, sometimes out of a lack of faith, but often out of pure stubbornness! I insisted I would NEVER homeschool and my mind would NEVER be changed on the issue! But I’m so glad God ignored me and made the necessary inroads to begin working on my heart. Sometimes now I cry at the thought I might NOT be homeschooling my four children today. I would have missed out on one of the greatest blessings of my life.

    You have a lovely family and a beautiful blog!
