#slowitdownSunday / do not let your heart be distressed, even on Easter

the daily Starr slow it down Sunday

Don’t be fooled by the family photos spilling over social media feeds today.

What you don’t see – how I got approximately 3.5 hours of sleep last night and how the grumpy 2 year old made this mama an absolute wreck before walking into Sunday School.

I drove to church questioning every responsibility I have in life and thinking how someone else would be much more qualified than me. Leading the Choir. Teaching Sunday School. Being a mom…it all just seemed to be crashing in my sleep deprived mind.

By the time I walked in the door for church (10 minutes late, which has not happened in almost a year!!!!), I was in tears and ready to throw the towel in.

That’s when I pulled up the scripture for our Sunday School lesson and had to simply laugh at God’s perfect timing.

Yep.

Funny, right??

John 14:1 – “Do not let your heart be distressed.”

Well, that was ironic. It only got better as we kept reading.

Peace I leave with you.

Do not let your hearts be distressed or lacking in courage.

I think I get the message, God.

Obviously, He doesn’t intend for me to handle the pressures of this world alone. He gives me peace – not as the world gives, thank goodness.

So once again I come before Him toย #slowitdownSundayย and lay down my shortcomings at His feet.

That’s where they belong.

Happy Easter, my friends.
