It's been a while.
All this time I've been busily working...hopefully not too much Martha. Too much Martha is not good! But honestly, it feels like lots of Martha.
I have come to understand the need to sit at the feet of Jesus. Mary had it right, she not only understood the need to come aside...she actually made it a priority. She took time to bask in His presence OVER EVERYTHING ELSE!!!
Jesus told Martha she was troubled about many things. He told her she was distracted. He told her one thing was necessary, one thing needful. Mary chose that part. That good part.
Sitting at His feet and listening to Him.
The Lord said it wouldn't be taken away from Mary...those things learned from time spent with Him.
That's one big thing I learned this summer. The best thing. All the other things that I learned and did pale in comparison. There were probably many times I was troubled and distracted. But always, the Holy Spirit reminded me of that one needful thing. My heart ached at times for it.
Sitting at Jesus' feet and listening to Him.
So much to tell. Summer stories. But I'll leave that for next time!
It might not be a bad thing to sit and take the time to read Luke 10:38-42.
What will Jesus tell you while you sit at His feet and hear His word?
May the Holy Father, the Only Wise God liberate you to sit at the feet of His Dear Son, Jesus Christ the Lord of All. Be blessed!
