THIS is how amazing God is... HA! Not that I need to confirm His ability! My sister in law gave me this book YEARS ago. When she gave it to me I thought it was about being MORE LIKE MARY in a MARTHA STEWART WORLD and I tucked it away with "someday I'll crack it open" books. A number of times it was on the "purge" pile and then pulled back in and tucked in the "someday pile".
Sunday the message was on Mary & Martha (for which I'm well aware of the story) and BAM! Like a brick thrown from heaven I was hit in the head and recalled I HAVE A BOOK ON MARY & MARTHA. God is SO GOOD. I most certainly probably could have used the lesson when my thoughtful sister in law gave me this book (13+ years ago)! But the AH HA MOMENT is that I CAN REALLY REALLY use lessons being shared NOW. How incredible our God being a part of the smallest of details and KNOWING our needs before we know we are needy! This morning I'm in awe of a God who reminds me STOP and REST IN ME. I am reminded to TRUST & REST IN ME. I am reminded SHUT UP & LISTEN TO ME. Sometimes I feel as though I'm in such a hurry, that I am praying AT GOD and not TO GOD and for that...nothing much fruitful comes of it. Thank you Jesus for books that bring bountiful lessons and the understanding you know my needs before I ask. Thank you Thank you...
Oh look, day break and my date with Jesus awaits.... I will be quiet this morning and LISTEN
BLESSINGS OVER YOUR DAY FRIENDS!
