But one thing is necessary

Apr 28, 2016

This morning I woke up and decided to gather all my thought and pour my heart out to God. As the words started to leave my lips, they became murmurs of complaints. Why this? Why that? How come this? and Why not that? All I could think about saying to God was all the wrong that was happening in my life. So anxious about everything going on all around me, even the noise of the builders banging their equipment against the wood outside my window made me more annoyed. I quickly added it in my prayer that the noise was becoming too much and I was starting to lose my focus. 

Oh Lord, Nana, really ? You're complaining about the construction workers too? They are just doing their job.In the midst of my prayers I was reminded about the story of Martha and Mary, so eager to make sure I got all I had to say out to the Lord I decided to quickly turn to the scripture before I ended off my prayer. 

This is what Jesus said to Martha, 
"Martha, Martha, you are anxious and troubled about many things, but one thing is necessary". | Luke 10: 41-42|

That one thing that was necessary was Christ. It wasn't the things that troubled Martha or made her anxious.She was missing out on the very thing that was in her midst that could take all her troubles away and calm her anxious heart. I was so worried about all the things on my mind I missed out on the presence of God. My focus was just making sure that God got everything in my life in check instead of just sitting at his feet and embracing how good He is. In not doing so, I forgot to be thankful about all the things that he has already done in my life thus far. 

How many of us are Martha's? I know I am, but I'm working on it. I know it can be tough when you've been asking for a job and you've been applying everywhere and no one is calling you back--it's easy to complain. Or when God has given you promises but the promise is no where in sight. Let this be a reminder that although our troubles can weigh heavily on us,  we shouldn't forget to give God the praise for all He has done or who He is in our lives. It's okay to be anxious about the future but don't forget the one thing that is necessary-- JESUS!

for the sake of his love,
