While she's sleeping



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.”
Luke 10:41-42

It is not the first time that I heard this passage, but it is one that I want to take to heart. I get distracted, a lot. My focus is not where it should be. I rush around thinking I'm working hard and concentrated on the task at hand, let it be cleaning the house or preparing for company. But the opposite is happening, I'm frantic and unfocused, worried about the wrong things. Worried about what my company will think if I leave a speck of dust on the floor. Worried that if I'm not up and doing something I'm wasting time. 

As a first time mom, oftentimes I feel like I'm not good enough at the job God has entrusted me with. I feel like there are so many areas that I need to improve and when I look at other moms I wonder how they got it all figured out so quickly. In these moments, just like Martha, I have lost touch with what is important. Whenever I feel rushed and unfocused, I want to be still and remember that He is God. He is in control and will work everything for our greater good.

That said, my little One just woke up and wants my attention. She is a wonderful gift from God and I love every second with her. Be blessed my friends, we serve an amazing God.
