The Lover After Me

“Now as they were traveling along, He entered a village; and a woman named Martha welcomed Him into her home. She had a sister called Mary, who was seated at the Lord’s feet, listening to His word. But Martha was distracted with all her preparations; and she came up to Him and said, “Lord, do You not care that my sister has left me to do all the serving alone? Then tell her to help me.” But the Lord answered and said to her, “Martha, Martha, you are worried and bothered about so many things; but only one thing is necessary, for Mary has chosen the good part, which shall not be taken away from her.” – Luke 10.38-42

I wonder just how grand the world would be if we were all of a sudden stripped of anxiousness. If we would stop worrying about the future. If we would stop worrying about people’s perceptions of us. If we would stop worrying about our own inadequacies. If we would stop worrying about school. If we would stop worrying about time. If we would stop worrying about God’s faithfulness, goodness, and loving kindness.

If we could just sit down and enjoy the portion of Christ in which we wait, earnestly. My friend passed me this note the other day that read:

“God knows where each of us is going and exactly how He is going to get us there. Remain in Him and be anxious for nothing.”

And now I’ve passed it on to you.
