Martha, Martha- Time to Refresh
© 1998 Debbie Turner Chavers
As I thought of my daily physical and spiritual activity this past week, I realized I was in need of refreshing. As If my heart and mind were not telling me loud enough...a detector in my home started an intermittent beep followed by a verbal warning that said "Low Battery" every so often.
There is always another task and another place to go.
But let's stay home...and sit at His feet.
So what if...
God really speaks to us in the mist of our daily endeavor? Yes, mist..not midst.
So what if....He did?
Would you pause to listen? To gather your bearings, possibly chart a new course?
Would you begin to unload your cargo...to be still and really listen?

At times we flounder in our thoughts and life choices. Stabbing at every passing thought with a small movement toward recognition.
We search for patterns in the maze of life. A thread within the tapestry and try not to unravel.
This search for clarity and meaning can only be found in Christ Jesus.
Our heart can thrill when we perceive God's truth in our everyday perspective.
We can bemoan the darkness or we can lean into His light.
It is amazing that when surrounded in darkness that the smallest, tiny dot of light brings relief to an aching heart or weary mind.
We have been given a precious freedom from the present darkness.
Lean into His light, walk toward the light of His Way and His Word.
Luke 10:38 Now it came to pass, as they went, that he entered into a certain village: and a certain woman named Martha received him into her house.
Luke 10:39 And she had a sister called Mary which also sat at Jesus feet and heard his word.
Luke 10:40 But Martha was cumbered about much serving, and came to him, and said, Lord, dost thou not care that my sister hath left me to serve alone? bid her therefore that she help me.
Luke 10:41 And Jesus answered and said unto her, Martha, Martha, thou art careful and troubled about many things:
Luke 10:42 But one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her.
Proverbs 3:5 Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
