“38 Now it came to pass, as they went, that He (Jesus) entered into a certain village: and a certain woman named Martha received Him into her house.
39 And she had a sister called Mary, which also sat at Jesus’ feet, and heard His Word.
40 But Martha was cumbered about much serving, and came to Him, and said, Lord, do You not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? bid her therefore that she help me.
41 And Jesus answered and said unto her, Martha, Martha, you are careful and troubled about many things: 42 But one thing is needful: and Mary has chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her.” Luke 10:38-42
Many years I spent toiling in the world. Then the day came that I accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior. Still daily was the grind after I was saved until I almost lost everything I toiled over. My business was gone. My boyfriend of many years gone and there I sat. Not understanding what was going on nor what was going to happen, I chose the “Good Part”….Jesus Christ. Months on end I spent in His Word, looking unto Him and He would author and finish my faith. Months on end, He would supply all of my needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus. Months on end, I chose to seek Him first.
Those months have now turned into years. Since then the Lord has given me so much more than I could ever imagine. A God fearing husband and a home filled with love. Family and friends who have blessed me; both young and old. There are still troubles but the peace of God is my strong tower and I will not be shaken. He is my refuge.
“28 Come unto Me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
29 Take My Yoke upon you, and learn of Me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and you shall find rest unto your souls.
30 For My Yoke is easy, and My burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30
Choose the “Good Part” and you will find rest unto your soul.
