Hi we recently joined a church that we truly LOVE. I adore going to it, but my husband usually has to work on sunday's so he doesn't get to go with me. So i have to go with all 3 kids ages 4 and under by myself. And usually I don't mind. I can't deal and handle it but there are some Sunday's that I just don't have the strength to go. I just want to sit at home and enjoy the comfort of my walls. I have asthma and it has been bothering me super bad these last couple of days with the weather changing back and forth. So the idea of just getting all the kids around and going by myself while not being able to breath exhausts me. But at the same time I want to do things around the house, clean yard work etc. I guess my question is does God understand, or will I be punished for skippin a Sunday just because I feel overwhelmed? I have big problem with thinking that every thing I do wrong I will be punished. I think of God as I did my own father growing up if I slip up slightly I am going to get some sort of lashing. I worry that my mistakes as a Christian will hurt my family. Like what if God intended for our garden to be awesome this Spring but if I miss church or think bad things what if he decided as a punishment that he will take our garden away from us. I know it sounds so petty but it is true I am honestly afraid that if I don't attend church EVERY sunday reguardless the circumstances I will not be blessed in anyway. Wow, Help!
