Too Busy?

Busy.  Being Under Satan’s Yoke.  Busy.

Jesus told Martha, “Martha, Martha,  (insert your own name here) ONLY ONE THING IS NEEDED.  Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken from her.”

The fact that Jesus had to say Martha’s name twice?  What does that tell you?  I think you know.

“Only one thing is needed” – Just one.  Did you get it?  ONLY one thing is needed.  Only ONE thing is needed.  Only one THING is needed.  Only one thing IS needed.  Only one thing is NEEDED.  So in the midst of your business ask yourself if this is the one thing needed.  If it doesn’t involve sitting at Jesus’ feet listening to Him, ask yourself, “How important is this?”

“Mary has Chosen what is better.”  Listening to Jesus is ALWAYS better than whatever the busyness is in our life.

“It will not be taken from her.”  Satan will use anyone or anything to steal Jesus’ words from us.  Sometimes it is a family member, or friend.  Sometimes it is an inner drive based on a lie.  Ask yourself, “WHY am I so busy?

Jesus doesn’t want us busy.  He wants us.

Imagine how Jesus felt having Mary, but not having Martha because she was too busy.  There is a longing there, for He knows what is better for us.

Can you do that which you are doing, but also, at the same time, rest at the feet of Jesus?  Rest in Him at all times.  If your soul is sitting at Jesus’ feet, then even while busy there will be peace.

Hi! My name is Amy. I am a former atheist and, for a season, practiced witchcraft. God drew me out of darkness 17 years ago and gave me the spiritual gifts of knowing and faith. He gives me daily encouragement and affirmation and I hope to share Him with you. If you have not yet met the one true God, His name is Jesus Christ, and may I be the first to introduce you to Him? He is the Restorative Savior God promised Adam and Eve 6,000 years ago (Genesis 3:15) after they had sinned in the garden, bringing separation from God because of disobedience. It is rightly reported that a little over 2,000 years ago in Bethlehem He was born of a virgin, lived a blameless perfect life in and around Jerusalem, died on a cross on Golgotha for the world's sin, and 3 days later rose again. YES! ROSE AGAIN! AMAZING! Please get baptized in His name, and walk in an eternal restored fellowship with Christ. You can get to know Him by reading, marking, and inwardly digesting His Word.... His Holy Bible.
