The Martha Syndrome and the Mary Solution

"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." Luke 10:38-42 NIV

God illustrated to us the story of two well-known women in the Bible, Martha and Mary, to give us a clear view of the kind of relationship Our Father wants with each of us. The two sisters had contrasting approaches to their walk with God – and thus got different results. Martha was busy going about her busy life, anxious and un-trusting. Mary got alone with God and worshipped at Jesus’ feet.

We, mums, are so engaged with our daily realities: feeding the baby, cooking for the family, cleaning, laundry, while maintaining a full-time career. How do we ever get to come away and just breath a little?

One thing that is needful, to do what matters most: Sit at the feet of Jesus, even for a short while and get filled with His most amazing grace that refreshes the soul. Big difference.

Have you tried that today?

A glorious day to my dear Thursday group ladies! We're hitting the one-digit temps! Bundle up. We can't afford to get the sniffles. Hugs to all of you wonderful ladies!
