Don't be so busy...


Another one of my kids' drinks spilled  on my carpet. Pulling out my carpet shampoo machine, and back to work, it is!

There is always something that needs to be done, or needs my attention in this home. When can I find time to do Bible Study with my children today...

As soon as those thoughts popped up in my mind, the story of Jesus at Maratha's home came to mind... Note these verses...

38 Now it happened as they went that He entered a certain village; and a certain woman named Martha welcomed Him into her house. 39 And she had a sister called Mary, who also sat at Jesus’ feet and heard His word. 40 But Martha was distracted with much serving, and she approached Him and said, “Lord, do You not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Therefore tell her to help me.”

41 And Jesus answered and said to her, “Martha, Martha, you are worried and troubled about many things. 42 But one thing is needed, and Mary has chosen that good part, which will not be taken away from her.”

Maratha was busy working, tending to things that needed to be done in her home; but her sister Mary, set aside time to be with Jesus. Christ is seen here in the scriptures telling Martha, that her sister choice of her time, was well chosen...

Chores will always be there
Weeds will always need pulling
Dust will always need to be dusted away

Quality time  spent with our Heavenly Father is what we need each day to make it through the day.  What has you preoccupied? Lay it aside today, it's not going anywhere and spend some refreshing time with Jesus .

Have a Bless Monday ... Love Sis Rashida
