Martha moments... even when things don't go exactly as I planned..
Getting ready for Thanksgiving this week and our garage door spring breaks and has to be replaced... our roof had a few loose shingles-not enough for insurance claim.. so out of pocket then to top it off as I was baking... I know no laughing..( those who know me know I don't know how to cook-but my mom has been helping me-thank goodness!) I burned a small cake cause I forgot I had it in there.. who wants a doorstop? Ha!
So in all the hustle and bustle of the holiday, I could see myself as Martha.. Not enjoying a time of relaxation in the midst of life.. I mean really who would have thought everything happens 2 days before Thanksgiving?
So after my disastrous cake, I needed to sit down and I began thinking of Martha.. Jesus was coming to visit and Martha was bustling around so busy she failed to sit at Jesus feet like her sister Mary did...I never want to be so busy that I take for granted how thankful I am for the cross and resurrection of the Lord Jesus, my family, my friends and all the blessings in my life. I want the Mary moments to be more important to show Gods love and grace to others and in this Thanksgiving week to take time to reflect and love on Jesus.
2 Corinthians 4:15
All this is for your benefit, so that the grace that is reaching more and more people may cause thanksgiving to overflow to the glory of God.
