You probably have guessed what I'll discuss here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), today. But, you may not be sure about how I will address it.
Yes, I went to worship with my church family, yesterday.
Like normal, it was a wonderful time to be with brothers and sisters in the Lord. Especially, since we worship, together.
Looking around, an issue addressed my heart.
Almost everyone in attendance had family members with them. A few people didn't. Well, maybe even only a couple. Other than me.
Things have changed so much, over the years.
There was a time when all my family members went to worship, together. But, that was many years ago.
After my children grew up, they began to no longer attend worship, with me. Although, they did attend other places of worship, at that time.
Back then, I wasn't alone.
My now deceased husband Gordon, and I worshipped together, with church family. But, he's been gone over six (6) years, now.
Only just before Christmas, when my granddaughter A had been attending Sunday school, was a time when her mom, my daughter B and her sons (my grandsons) actually came to worship. Just a couple of times.
Having this happen, made me so very happy. Plus, my heart felt that God was providing. And, I know He was.
Now, everything is back to normal. Just as it was, before my granddaughter, A came to worship.
However, I feel badly that none of my family, is worshipping with me. Not even my granddaughter, A.
Even though she loved being there. And, those who taught her, adored her being there.
I must admit, I felt sad.
Even so, I looked to our Lord. And, reminded myself I need not be afraid, even though this is a time of trouble.
Thinking of this, reminded me of John 14:27, "Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid."
Just as our Lord told us in today's Bible verse, we need not let our heart be troubled, nor let it be afraid. Peace, is what He gives us.
In case you'd like to know, the truth is, this is NOT a case of my granddaughter, A not wanting to be at Sunday school. Nor, has it happened due to her mom, my daughter, B... or any of her brothers preventing her from joining me for Sunday school.
It's happened, due to a problem being caused by someone else.
What happened, I cannot explain.
But, I will ask that you join me in prayer, that God will heal the problem, and restore everything in life, back to the way it was.
Thank you, my friend. May God bless you.
Until next time...
