38 As Jesus and his disciples were on their way, he came to a village where a woman named Martha opened her home to him.39 She had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord’s feet listening to what he said.40 But Martha was distracted by all the preparations that had to be made. She came to him and asked, “Lord, don’t you care that my sister has left me to do the work by myself? Tell her to help me!”
41 “Martha, Martha,” the Lord answered,“you are worried and upset about many things, 42 but few things are needed—or indeed only one. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.”
I used to be Martha, keeping myself busy with things that didn't matter. Working a job that didn't really matter in the whole scheme of things. What matters is giving time to God to let him integrate himself in to everything in your life.
I'm definitely not perfect at this. I'm still obsessed with having my house spotless! Even to the extent of exhaustion and anxiety when it's not done. I also fill my schedule with three jobs and a million and a half hobbies.
But being aware of your flaws is everything. I now spend time with God every day praying and reading the bible. I sing Christian lullabies to my son and I write this blog that hopefully will influence and help at least one person. I spend more time with my husband and son, I make sure I play with Liam the majority of my day and I write my blog while I rock him and he naps.
It makes for such a happier person and it is good for your soul. God feeds your soul and without him it's hard to be whole and to just let go.
My prayer for you today, is to just give control of your life to God and step back and breathe. Be happy and love simply through Jesus Christ.
