Prayer Journal: Day 164

Day 164

“Martha, Martha,” the Lord answered, “you are worried and upset about many things, but only one thing is needed. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.” – Luke 10:41-42 NIV

The Lord can help us reassign our priorities so that we can see what is important and what is optional. 

Our time is a finite resource, and when we have boundary issues, we sometimes get overloaded, the way Martha did when she got carried away with making preparations for Jesus and His disciples to visit. Her sister, Mary, instead of helping Martha with her long “to do” list, sat at the feet of Jesus and listened to what He had to say.

I can identify with Martha’s annoyance. Sometimes we have too much to do and want other people to help, but Jesus helps us to see what we can cut back on. Amen

Prayer Journal: Day 91

Day 91

For the word of the Lord is right and true; He is faithful in all He does. – Psalm 33:4 NIV

Our Lord keeps His word. He doesn’t break His promises to us. We can count on Him to not change His mind about us. We are His chosen people, and He wants the best for us. 

It’s sometimes hard to have patience when we ask for something and God makes us wait. Sometimes the answer is “no” and sometimes the answer is “not yet”. We need to practice patience in order to accept that God will bring things to pass in His time, not ours. Yes, He intends to bless us and take care of us, but sometimes we need to realize that He has His own ways of getting tasks done. 

We need to step back from our “to do” lists and watch His wonderful handiwork. He can do things better than we can. Amen.
