This morning Mia and I went to church with my friend Sarah. Mia had been asking me for some time to go and I was holding off trying to decide which church was the “right church” for us.
After Easter I asked Sarah if we could tag along with her one Sunday and this happened to be the Sunday we went. Mia insisted on staying close to me and didn’t even want to step foot in the children’s area lol, but wouldn’t you know it the sermon was all parent and child, and boy did it hit home! It was just what I needed to hear at this moment, as a parent. It spoke to areas I had been struggling with and gave me a whole new outlook. I left feeling supported, lifted up, inspired. It’s like God created that sermon, that service just for Mia and me. Like” oh I see you’ll be attending on this day so here’s what you need to hear this very minute!” Isn’t it amazing how things can happen like that?
Mia did really well all things considered and stayed quiet with an occasional pout, but decided next time she’ll try the kids area 😉 I definitely want to go back and give this church another try, but how wonderfully amazing to go for the first time in a long time (and first time ever for Mia!) and have words speak so directly to you?!
One thing I want to take home from that service is to focus on your garden and not the weeds. If you tend to your garden and work on helping it grow there won’t be room for weeds. So I want to focus on the the good, doing good, being good, encouraging good, and know that by doing so, there won’t be as much room for the bad:)
