I have just been reading this book,
I would recommend
it to anyone,
seeking a closer,
more intimate walk
I am actually not very well at the moment,
so, I am sitting in the garden,
reading this ( above) and it has been
a good use of my time!
It is easy to read,
I am finding it easy to identify with
She is honest and real.
How easy it is to be like Martha,
in this busy world we live in!
How we need to learn fro Mary,
to take time
sit at Jesus feet,
lapping up his
sitting in his
Putting all else aside,
the better way.
instead of work.
The author Joanna Weaver
suggests that Martha,
opened her home to
but she missed the opportunity to
10 "Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth."
She used the illustration
that when we
for the Lord,
It is like putting the
cart before the horse!
Sure, the cart is of value,
but the Horse is of greater value!
For without the Horse,
we have to carry the cart alone,
and we become weary!
28 Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls.
When we choose to
sit at His feet,
we are choosing
to listen to Him.
'A deeper friendship with God, is found, by showing up,
with a ready heart & being ready to receive'
We have all been given an invitation.
Maybe it's the first time we have
I am the way, the truth and the Life.
( John 14:6)
I am inviting you
to come and bring your burdens from Life,
at my feet,
and find Rest for your souls.
Come and find Peace,
come and find Joy,
come and find
Come and find friendship,
The trouble is, when we hit times of trouble,
times of doubt, times where we feel alone
in these times we say to God,
"I need to Know...."
But God replies to us,
"No, you need to Trust!"
I identify with this so much!
I always want to know.
"How God will you turn this around?"
"How will this circumstance bring your Glory God?"
"How will you intervene Lord?"
Do you indentify?
Joanna compares these questions to
Eve and the temptation
in the garden of Eden.
The needing to Know,
"Why doesnt God want me to eat that fruit?"
The same temptations exist today.
We would rather Know,
that to simply
"Jesus loves you too much to give you what you want,
but instead He gives us what we need."
If you are going through things today,
that require trusting your creator and friend,
then take hope in these words.
1 Peter 5:7 (Amplified Bible)
7Casting the whole of your care (all your anxieties, all your worries, all your concerns, once and for all) on Him, for He cares for you affectionately and cares about you watchfully.
