““Martha, Martha,” the Lord answered, “you are worried and upset about many things, but few things are needed—or indeed only one.””
Luke 10:41 NIV
Being overwhelmed isn’t an emotion I like to have. There are always too many things to do and not enough time to do them.
The amazing thing about grace is that it immediately lifts the burden of “everything that should be done” and replaces it with the “one thing that needs to be done “.
What is that “one thing”?
It is sitting at the feet of Jesus.
Drop your to do list, close your eyes and take some time to sit with Him. Being with Jesus does wondeful things to your priorities- it lines them right up.
“Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion?
Come to me.
Get away with me and you’ll recover your life.
I’ll show you how to take a real rest.
Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it.
Learn the unforced rhythms of grace.
I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you.
Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.”
(Matthew 11:28-30 MSG)
