As a lot of you know, right now is a very busy time for our church. The other night I woke up at 2:30am with my mind buzzing with all the things I have to do this month. I tossed and turned and prayed and cried for about an hour before I gave up trying to sleep and went to the living room to read the Bible. I didn’t know where to find something that would help me, so I just picked up where I left off the day before. I ended up reading the story about Mary and Martha. It was like Jesus was talking to me. . .”Becky, Becky, you are worried and upset about many things, but few things are needed–or indeed only one.” I realized that I have not been spending nearly enough time sitting at Jesus’ feet, listening to what he says. Besides, it’s his ministry anyway; I will do what I can, but it’s up to him. So have a good weekend, and take time for what matters.
On a semi-related note, I’m not sure if I will have a weekend project this time. We’ll see.
