Life is often hectic and crazy. You can so often get caught up in the moment and forget to look at the picture as a whole. Its like the expression "you miss the forest for the trees". You look at what is right before you and get so engrossed with that, you forget the reason you were created.....for Him. Its is so easy to get wrapped up in what may be good things, yet they are distracting you from focusing on He who created you. I know personally, I do this often. For instance, I can be so focused on teaching Children's Church, or doing dramas or cleaning this or that, and I forget that on my own.....it amounts to nothing.
So my goal for myself today is,
Be like Mary instead of Martha....focus on Him, instead of what I can do or accomplish. Look at what He is doing as a whole in my life and His ministry. Let me always remember that my life and everything I do is HIS ministry...not mine.
Listening and focusing on Him,
