My grumbling heart paused.
My thoughts redirected.
The unsettled bones in my body came to rest. Even though in that moment I didn’t feel like praying, I joined hands with my baby girls anyway.
God doesn’t turn his back.
Get there without delay.
Don’t pause to look around.
Get to Him.
But God’s divine whisper tenderly reminds us that it’s all about Him and not about the decorations, speakers, or food.
There’s nothing like witnessing the undeniable movement of an Almighty God during fellowship time together. Even if just one person turns back a new page in their love story with Jesus, it’s worth it. It’s worth over planning and last minute errands to see leaks of tears streaming down the faces of women desiring to become more.
But behind every big event you’ll find at least one or two frazzled females. As I scribbled check marks down the list I began asking myself, “When stress bullies its way through the door of opportunity will I live up to God’s standard of peace, patience, and self-control? Will I wrap my arms around the feet of Jesus when I feel myself buckling under the pressure of last minute details?
“How can you let God down when you were never holding him up?”
Do you really know I am your mercy behind everything you do?
As floods of emotion saturated my cheek, I replied, “Yes Lord, I know you are all those things.” Sometimes I just need to be reminded. Thank you for pausing today in the midst of all your creation just for me. Thank you for the revelation that every detail of my day needs to be committed to you. Please be the Lord over my details today and every day. Amen.
Are we spending our time wisely?

Oh, I could do some prodding and likely figure out who “she” is and I thought about it, but I wouldn’t want to steal her joy. So, I’ll just leave it.
