I needed some time

I didn’t go to church this morning so I could spend some alone time with Jesus.  Yep, it sounded that way in my head too… not quite lining up… but I really needed it.  It’s not what I would call a good practice for all Sundays, but, it’s what I needed to do, and it was worthwhile in helping me think and pray through some recent events, life developments, as well as some ministry requests made of me recently, and generally just ‘be still and know’. If you want to pray with me, you’re most welcome.  God knows all the details.

    the internal or external pressure you feel needing to justify not going to church isn’t God or from him.

    It’s good and right and holy to miss church at times, or even often.

    the voice in your head saying it doesn’t line up should be told to sit down and shut it’s mouth, :-)

    Good for you talking a week off. Take more if you need them… you may find Jesus in new ways.

    I hope you had a great day!

    I did, thank you! I’m very glad that voice went unheeded, and even more glad to have the encouragement to listen to the right voice.

    The point of the post was mostly to assure folks from church that I was well, and hanging with Jesus on my own today. Maybe that would have been a better angle? :)

I want to hear your thoughts!
