Devotional; At the Feet of Jesus: Daily Devotions to Nurture a Mary Heart

At the Feet of Jesus: Daily Devotions to Nurture a Mary HeartAt the Feet of Jesus: Daily Devotions to Nurture of a Mary Heart

   I love the story of Mary and Martha.
   I am so Martha.
   You know the story, from the book of Luke.  Jesus is coming to visit the home of Mary and Martha.  Martha gets busy, making sure everything is perfect.  Who can blame her?  Jesus is coming!  Talk about the ultimate house guest!  She rushes around perfecting everything.  Once he's there, she's still rushing, trying to entertain.  She looks into the room and sees Mary, simply sitting at his feet.

Luke 10:40 But Martha was distracted by the big dinner she was preparing. She came to Jesus and said, “Lord, doesn’t it seem unfair to you that my sister just sits here while I do all the work? Tell her to come and help me.”
41 But the Lord said to her, “My dear Martha, you are worried and upset over all these details! 42 There is only one thing worth being concerned about. Mary has discovered it, and it will not be taken away from her.”

   Love that.  I'm sure God has told me that so many times in my life.  I spend a lot of time preparing, rather than sitting at his feet.  
   That's what this devotion is about, and I feel hard pressed that I will never find a devotion I love so much as I did this one!!  
   If you don't read another book that I list on my page, please, choose this one.  It is honestly short, it doesn't take but a moment every day, and honestly this is the devotion that rekindled my love of reading and the honest reason I picked it back up again!  It was such a blessing!  
   Love this simple devotion, and Joanna Weaver.
