This morning I woke up with some hurt in my heart. Sometimes you just can't share everything on a blog post for others to read but I know you know what I mean. At times we can only take our burdens to Jesus.
Every day the reality is that we are focused on someone or something. It can be our work or chores as we remember Martha was in the Bible. She was a type-A person with an agenda. Or like me this morning~ maybe you woke up with some heavy burdens that you just can't share. We all will be focused on something today. We can allow our thoughts to be consumed by troubles or trials.
Or~ today we could choose to be like Martha's sister~ Mary who was focused on sitting at the feet of Jesus.
I am sick and tired of letting my focus be on the troubles and trials of this life.
When I sit at the feet of Jesus and focus on all that He has done for me all those troubles and trials just fade into the background. The burdens are lifted and before long I have a song in my heart and joy in my step.
Only Jesus can bring balance to our life as we surrender our agenda and every priority to His plan. He can bring sweet peace even in the midst of trouble and trials.
