I Was A Martha


When you heard name "Martha" then what is in your mind? "A busy lady?"
remember what I posted before that I was doing a lot of things during the Easter. I was a little bit upset that I felt I worked alone, everyone has their own business but I talked about this to my friend Sean but then he just responded with a simple words "Don't Be A Martha" well I felt like that words punch in my face and I was in silent - my head stopped to thinking, and I sat down.

I wondering did Jesus know what's in Martha heart and mind? and I talked about it to God, that I'm doing this, I work this because I love Him, and I just want to see the best in the Easter. 

I wonder and wonder - I opened my Bible and read the story again... I know Martha loved Jesus and her sister - she wanted to do the best too, and she tried...tried with her own way, but it ended with full of worries and tiring then she was found with grumbling. Oh I was like her maybe...

Both Mary and Martha loved Jesus - but it was in different way. Jesus definitely knew that Martha loved Him too but Mary was doing much way better than Martha. Mary was waiting and listening, seated at  the feet of Jesus.  Martha did love the Lord but she was worried at the first time, she wont this and that could happen if she doesnt work.

The key words are waiting and listening...
Stop worrying Eva...sit, waiting and listening. Let your words be few.

Sometimes, living in this crazy world to many things to be worried, to many things that frighten us and we could forget to waiting and listen.

 What is more, I consider everything a loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them garbage, that I may gain Christ

Philippians 3:8

A beautiful lesson for all of us, dear Eva. The Lord used your friend in such a simple way to show you what God wanted you to see - don't you love when that happens? :)

Thank you for sharing your heart and being honest, sweet friend. I love you!

Hi Delvalina! I think you got it right. Martha was doing good and necessary work. She was just worried about it, and feeling left out too. If she did her work with joy, she'd be happy.

I am like Martha at times myself. It's ok. I'll learn inch by inch to be happier in work and in prayer too. It will take my whole life I think.

Great post my friend. A good one to think about.

Right from the heart sweet lady!
This was a beautiful post and one that I believe every women struggles with. It is so easy to become too busy and miss out on the goodness the Lord has for us in sitting quietly at His feet, and then as humans, we grumble. :-(
Praise the Lord for His gentle ways of drawing us back in close fellowship with Him.
You are so beautiful Delvalina!
Blessings, Mrs. Debbie
