I was reading my devotional today {about 3 hours late} and I was so jumbled in my thoughts and was having a hard time concentrating. With so much going on I’ve fallen into this rush rush mode. Doing has become more important than being still and taking a moment to just sit with the Lord. So as I’m reading my devotion {of course the phone rings and the kids have a million questions} the verse for the day is referencing the story of Mary and Martha. If you don’t know who they are they were sisters whom Jesus was visiting. One sister, Mary, took time to sit with Jesus and just enjoy his company. The other sister, Martha, in a panic {me}, was so busy with preparations that she even tattled on Mary to Jesus {sisters lol}. Instead of Jesus telling Mary “Go help your sister” he told Martha {my version} “settle down girl Mary is just fine!” I would have been so irritated not to mention embarrassed that Jesus told me to calm the heck down {again my version}. Omg! I have been a Martha lately, so busy and distracted that I haven’t had a moment to just sit and enjoy the company of the Lord. Life is busy and demands a lot out of us. Kids, husbands, sports, church, jobs, the list goes on and on. These are not bad things yet, they can become a chain around our neck that weighs us down like a slave to their master. I am so guilty of simply not taking the time to be still and know God. Martha and I would have been great friends; however, I want to be great friends with Jesus too! Take time today to get alone and visit with the Lord. He’s great company!!
