That Church Feeling: If You Know, You Know

I didn’t go to church last Sunday or this morning. You’re like oh, hello, you haven’t written in like a year!? (Sorry and hi, again!)

Anyhow..haha.. I scheduled a grocery pickup about 15 minutes after it started last weekend. What the devil LOL

That church feeling though. Do you know what I’m talking about? When you walk in, you’re suddenly filled with love that bursts at the seams. Literally for me…mine comes out of my eyes haha. I don’t cry at every service..well it’s not always sad tears at least and they don’t always fall out of my eyes. 

So anyhow, I’ve been reflecting on pastor’s message from that weekend prior, and it was definitely good enough for weeks worth of thinking on it.

Pray peace over it, he said. 

Or you know, that’s my short and sweet version of his sermon:) But my friend Jess and I went to church together that day and she said that it really resonated with her, too, and that she was putting it into practice throughout the week as well. 

I pray peace over my thoughts. WOW. That’s good, right? Who doesn’t need more peaceful thoughts?

I pray peace over my sweet Daddy, my day and my relationship. 

I pray peace over my brother’s death. Whew… heavy. Still so very heavy. Typing in this moment even gets me, my heart in my throat, eyes welling up. So raw and so very real. 

But sometimes when I pray peace over it, it does.. something. I can’t explain that something, I don’t have the words yet.

Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see. 

Even if you’re not there yet, keep praying peace over your situation, no matter what it is. You might choke/cry through it, it hurts that much sometimes. But keep saying it, keep doing it, and keep fighting for it. Pray peace over your life and pray peace into your life. 

Matthew 21:22 If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.

Continue to pray for peace and believe that you will have it. If you are reading this today, please allow me pray for you:

Dear God,

I pray peace over my reader, that they hear Your message and begin to pray peace over their situations. I pray that they walk through their day with a heart full of Your word, believing they are worthy of Your peace and love. I pray that they lean on You and lean into You. Please lead them and remind them of Your peace.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.
