This week in Cleveland has been CRUMMY. Lots of snow, really cold – basically it’s February and nobody wants to ever leave their homes. Because of this, I’ve been watching a lot of movies lately. Irwin had worship team practice for church last night and I turned on War Room. I’d been wanting to rewatch this movie for awhile now, but hadn’t had the chance. Having a night to do nothing though finally gave me this opportunity.
Now, I don’t know about you, but it’s rare for me to actually sit there and watch movies. To me, watching a movie is a great time to get a to-do list or my meal plan for the following week written. Last night was no exception. I turned on the movie, watched like 5 minutes, grabbed a snack and my notebook and started meal planning for next week.
However, something weird happened last night. I’d say about a quarter of the way through the movie, I had switched over from looking up some new recipes to looking at bible verses and “how to pray for your future babies”. I can’t even really say this was my intention, but I guess subconsciously the movie really got to me and I ended up writing out two full pages of scripture and prayer for our little snow babies and my little family. I felt so refreshed after I stopped writing, like I had given the biggest thing in my heart over to God, and I felt a lot of peace afterward. I also had an overwhelming sense of positivity come over me. I’m kind of hoping to continue to spend an hour or so each night with God, even if something is going on in the background, it’s really nice to just spend that time in his presence not worrying about anything and casting out all my fears. God’s got us in this and in everything, we just need to trust him.
