Reference #22 Where Is Your Heart?
Hello everyone! Welcome to my daily column! I hope that you had an awesome weekend! My weekend was pretty great! I was able to attend Winter Jam! I hope you enjoy tonight’s write-up and special occasions!
Jesus Has What We Need
Jesus, he had all those people around. He could hardly find a moment alone. Most often times it would be in the night.
Many worshiped him, he was our savior – our Messiah. He was the one that would light the way. They would have done anything for him, or was it that they would have done anything for what he had to offer?
When Jesus said come, they would leave everything behind knowing that what Jesus had for them was something they had never known and couldn’t be duplicated in the physical.
I think about Jesus, could anyone understand him truly? He was brought here higher to teach us better. I imagine he was very alone in thought, and in the physical. For that loneliness he had endured would also be our lesson, because he would show us that God was enough.
Where Is Your Heart?
Jesus met Mary Magdalene. Agh, she came along and while everyone was crowding around him asking or taking something of Jesus, she asked Jesus are you are OK?
Where is your heart? Are you seeking from others? Do you know that God is enough? Are you in a place of need, or are you in a place of gratitude for what God is doing?
And Jesus answered and said unto her, Martha, Martha, thou art careful and troubled about many things: but one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her.Luke 10:41-42 KJV
While Martha ran around trying to make all things perfect, she was exhausted and frustrated. It was too much but she thought it had to be done. She was sacrificing every ounce of her energy, what was she doing it for? I think about my life, I am busy doing to receive, maybe money, maybe compassion, maybe respect. Oh, but Mary!
Mary was giving and receiving love. She wasn’t sitting still, she was moving, she was working, and she was taking the easy yoke because she was giving of herself without any need. Mary’s labor didn’t offer her a bead of sweat, She found peace in her work.
Receive The Blessing
The question I have been brought to a lot lately is, am I trying too hard? Am I working hard to get what is right in front of me? Am I like all the people fighting to get something from Jesus, or am I basking in his goodness as a willing vessel? Am I trying to be happy, when happiness is in my grasp? Is my desire what gives me drought? So many questions, but I think the answers are irrelevant. I just need to be willing to receive. To be as Mary, present.
Allow yourself the opportunity to just bask in Jesus without any desire, but trust in what he is doing. I truly believe that he died for our freedom and happiness, the question is are we taking it for granted? I wish you all a beautiful day tomorrow! You are blessed, don’t forget it!
