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.
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 to #slowitdownSunday and lay down my shortcomings at His feet.
That’s where they belong.
Happy Easter, my friends.
