Martha Vs. Mary


"As Jesus and his disciples were on their way, he came to a village where a woman named Martha opened her home to him. She had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord's feet listening to what he said. But Martha was distracted by all the preparations that had to be made. She came to him and asked, "Lord, don't you care that my sister has left me to do the work by myself? Tell her to help me!"

"Martha, Martha," the Lord answered, "you are worried and upset about many things, but only one thing is needed. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her."

The world always seems to know just how to distract me from spending time with My King. Satan loves it when I seldom pick up my Bible, when I don't act in love towards others like I know I am called to do. This morning I felt the Lord tug on my heart...He said: before your feet hit that floor, daughter, will you spend some time with me in my Word? I knew what that meant....before breakfast, before business calls, before my blog and before facebook.....God wanted me to seek Him out first.

I am just so grateful that He speaks to me; and that I heard Him today. I felt Him calling me to read out of Luke chapter 10....and lo and behold look at what I find! (Luke 10:38-42) Mary knew that to sit still and to listen to Him alone, not the outside world...that is what He wanted of her. I don't want to be a Martha...do you? This applies to you guys to...you don't have to be a "Mary" be a "Paul!" :~) I don't want to be so consumed and caught up in the world that I forget to spend time with the lover of my soul!

How beautiful to hear Him...to know His love...to learn to lean on Him through His Holy Word.
