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.

Scripture Sunday: Why Are You A Christian?

I’m a Christian because I want to be.pexels-photo-267559

I want to believe, and I have faith in God. I want a relationship with Him.

I am blessed and happy to know that there is already a completed and divine plan for my life.

I want to sit in peace and live with joy, everyday. I don’t want to spend my life worrying, stressed, and unable to see the beauty all around us.

That’s what’s available to us as Christians, believing in God, and having a relationship with Him. We get peace, contentment, joy, and everything amazing that He has created for us.

How lucky are we? How blessed are we?

If you’re reading this, I want to pray for you.

Dear God, Thank you for giving us so many amazing reasons to be a Christian. Thank You for being our God and all of the promises You have made to us. We are so blessed to have you. We are so blessed to have all that you have created for us. Please remind us that everything is this life is of You and it is all meant to be. In Jesus’name, Amen.

Scripture Sunday: Ask God Where to Go

I don’t feel lost but I do wonder.

I wonder “where” I should be going. I also think about what I should be doing. I love to do lots of things, and I always have. But I think about if I should be doing more of one thing, and less of all of the things? Or if I’m doing what I “should” be.

Do you wonder about that?

For me, I love knowing that God has a plan for me.  I love knowing that even if I stray a bit, God will bring me back to where I should be. But I also get that feeling, that ‘déjà vu’ or instinctive knowing, that I am exactly where I’m supposed to be.

It’s Him telling me that I am where I should be and I’m doing it right. And I’m so thankful for each time I hear it.

I’m so thankful and grateful that there is a plan for my life and all I have to do is live it. I encourage you to talk to Him about it all and stay in peace that everything is as it should be.


If you’re reading this, I want to pray for you.

Dear God, We thank You for having a plan for our lives. We are so thankful that we can come to You with our wonders, doubts, and questions about ourselves. We thank You for reminding us that we are on the right path. We are so lucky to live in the peace You provide to us. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
