Learning to Be a Mary in a Martha World

Updated on August 19, 2019

So, the other night during worship I was having trouble pressing in. I just could not break through. In a word, I just wasn't feeling it. I kept asking God "Why? Why can't I break through? Why can't I feel You??" I just did not understand. At this point, I was getting frustrated so I asked a friend to pray with me and MAN!!! Did that change things!!!!!

God spoke a word to my heart through this sweet sweet wonderful woman that totally wrecked my world! God called me "MARTHA." Now at first, I was offended. But isn't that the nature of things. If it doesn't offend you, It won't change you. The cross itself is beautiful and offensive. It must be both. The majority of the time if we get offended it's because we got our toes stepped on. Be honest with yourself. If someone calls you out on something you know isn't right with you, your first reaction is "HOW DARE THEY??" That's not their business. It's not that big a deal why would they want to point that out?? YA!! When God does that... It's called CONVICTION!!!!!

I was totally convicted about being a Martha. Ouch! I try to do the right things. Be the right person. WORK WORK WORK And I try to do it all on my own. Most moms are guilty of this. I'll be honest I am not the best housekeeper. My kitchen and living room are ninety-nine percent of the time a disaster. There are dirty clothes in my bedroom floor and you will probably step on some small child's play thing if you walk around my house in the dark. I just can't keep up and at times I feel like a failure because of it. I constantly worry about making my family happy, working a forty hour a week job, trying to fix things for the ones I love, and trying to be an all around superwoman. I try to be homemaker, counselor, wife, mother, friend, employee, teacher, and any other hat that someone expects of me. If this is you, I totally get you! I understand!

But in Luke 10, Jesus tells Martha something very important, that Mary had found what was most important and it would not be taken away from her. Do you know what that most important thing was? Sitting in the presence of Jesus and soaking in what He had to give!

So, Ladies, learn to slow down. Take time to sit in His presence. And understand it's ok to let the housework or any other task wait for a while. Find your peace at His feet. Find your rest under His wings. Those things can wait. Your time with God should be your first priority. Let's learn together how to be Mary's in this Martha world.

Much love and blessings,

A Mom Just Like You
