#slowitdownSunday / you can have it all, Lord

the daily Starr slow it down Sunday

This morning I sat as a visitor in the church I attended during my college years. It was no accident.

God orchestrated EVERY single moment of that service to speak directly to my heart. I cried tears over and over as God revealed to me that He hasn’t forgotten.

The worship song I’ve played on repeat all week and felt in my heart just happened to be the one they ended congregational worship with today.

The resurrected King is resurrecting me! 

No accident.

The exact verse that the youth Pastor walked up to the podium and read was the same one I’ve been speaking over and over and over into my own life for months. I just quoted it this week on the blog.

Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us. Hebrews 12:1 

No accident.

I had to laugh when the sermon preached today was actually focused on a campaign to raise money for a new Children’s Ministry center at their local church – and SOMEHOW God used the entire morning to speak to this mama’s heart.

They were talking about preparing a place for children – and God made the challenge absolutely personal for me.

Am I preparing a place and taking care of my own babies at home? 

The question scared me. It scared me in my tracks.

As they ended the service, this song played. And the tears kept flowing.

Lord, you can have it all.

Every single part.

My home. My kids. My job. My dreams. My all.

Take this broken heart and make it Yours. Take this home that is sometimes chaos and make it Yours.
