Dear Martha

Dear Martha from Bethany
You worry too much
[[Based on a True Story: Luke 10]]

Dear Martha,

You are a busy woman, I see. You constantly find things to keep yourself occupied. You have a little perfectionist in you. You have so many good qualities, you are good-natured and you are a servant. You are so hospital inviting Jesus to your home, which makes you totally responsible to serve Him. This leads me to understand why you feel the burden to have Mary help you.

Why didn’t you ask Mary for help instead of complaining to Jesus about it? There are things that we go to Jesus for that we can handle ourselves. The things that you are killing yourself over, aren’t as important as you make them. Serving the Lord is great but sitting at His feet is greater.

You are probably still baffled as to why Jesus didn’t speak to Mary for you. The problem with you wasn’t what you were doing but the time that you were doing it. There is a time to spend time in God’s presence and there is a time to take care of things.

My modern day Martha, have you been serving God without making time to sit at his feet. There is a time to serve God and a time to sit at His feet to glean wisdom and understanding. The time you go to church is the time for God’s presence not for you to be cleaning the church, congregating with friends and so forth. Another thing, there are things that you have no business worrying about that. I will go as far to say that you don’t even need to pray about them because they aren’t important. Stop being busy for God and not busy with God. His presence is worth more than the preparation for him. Seek it!

Strongly together & Inspired by,
