Are you a Blessing Blocker? Questions

Before you nitpick your way into oblivion, take a step back and reassess the entire situation. Ask yourself some questions:

1. Will this decision matter in five years? I think you’ll agree that the color of the awning on the house is not nearly as important as making sure the foundation of the house is not damaged. Each decision we make ultimately affects some part of our lives, but it is important to prioritize.

2. Is the situation non-negotiable? We all have things that we refuse to compromise on. Sometimes this is necessary, but other times we realize there really is no reason we should not try to reach a happy medium.

3. Are you ready for the changes to come? Change is at times quite difficult to accept. Sometimes, we unknowingly construct roadblocks in our own path so we will not have to endure change. We don’t make the time, we feign ignorance, and we refuse to share.

4. Have you Consulted God? What did He have to say about it?

  1. I just finished “The Best Yes” by Lysa TerKeurst and she had very similar questions in chapter 10, page 123. It wasn’t about blocking blessings, but it was about assessing why you are saying yes before you make a commitment:

    How will you feel two weeks, two months, and six months from now?

    Does any of this feel forced or frantic?

    Is any of this tied to people pleasing?

    Do wise people in my life think this is a good idea?

    Are there any facts I’m trying to hide when discussing this with my wise advisors?

    • Those are really good questions. I haven’t read the best yes, but I can definitely understand why it is a good idea to assess the reasons why we say yes. I will look into whether I can get this book on audio. Thanks Nancy!
