But Martha was distracted with all her preparations; and she came up to Him and said, “Lord, do You not care that my sister has left me to do all the serving alone? Then tell her to help me.” But the Lord answered and said to her, “Martha, Martha, you are worried and bothered about so many things; but only one thing is necessary, for Mary has chosen the good part, which shall not be taken away from her.” – Luke 10:40-42
I’ve been so distracted. There are always so many preparations and “once-and-for-alls” and tasks and lists… it goes on and on… and on.
So often I approach the Lord in this way, asking why He doesn’t send help for me to get all of these things done in time.
What I need to recognize is that these distractions, as soon as they’re accomplished, are replaced with new worries. It’s a vicious cycle.
But Jesus says only one thing is necessary. Only one single thing.
The good part.
I’m sitting at His feet tonight. I’m laying everything else down. I’m embracing the quiet. I just want to be with Him. Just to be and to listen and to love.
How about you?
Dear God, I’m coming. I miss You. I love you. In Jesus’ Name, Amen…
