This is pretty much how we spent most of our weekend. Warren had a tummy bug Friday and spent yesterday recovering. This is also the one weekend Dustin was out of town. If I’m being honest, this weekend exhausted me. I had a ton of excuses as to why not to go to church.
And yet, we woke up this morning, ate breakfast, got ready, grabbed a coffee on the way, and showed up at church. Not because I felt obligated but because I knew that, even if I’m feeling a little overwhelmed and tired, there’s a place for me among my brothers and sisters.
Y’all, don’t make excuses. You’ll always be tired and the kids will always make the mornings 100x more stressful than they need to be, but that’s why we attend church. There’s a safe place, a sense of fellowship. There are 100 people who can relate to you but they, much like you, have a desire to be there and know what it’s like to have a relationship with Jesus.
