one thing

26 Feb
Here’s a confession…
 
I have been so overwhelmed with the sad, SAD state of my house lately that I feel guilty about spending time with Jesus. With the laundry piled up and the dishes to do, the floors to wash and the bathrooms to clean (not to mention doing school with my son and making legitimate meals for my family), I feel like taking time to sit at the feet of my Savior is a luxury that I can’t afford. Crazy, huh? 
 
But then, I came across this blog (as I was up late with my newborn) and the Lord reminded me of this passage in Luke: 
 
“Now as they went on their way, Jesus entered a village. And a woman named Martha welcomed him into her house. And she had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord’s feet and listened to his teaching. But Martha was distracted with much serving. And she went up to him and said, “Lord, do you not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Tell her then to help me.” But the Lord answered her, “Martha, Martha, you are anxious and troubled about many things, but one thing is NECESSARY. Mary has chosen the good portion, which will not be taken away from her.”
 Luke 10:38-42  
 
One thing. Necessary. Sitting at the feet of Jesus

Not housework or cooking. Not school or laundry.

Jesus. 
 
Just Jesus.

So I will go and and I will sit. I will soak up all that I can from my Lover. And I will choose to focus on the One who matters most.
