She had a sister named Mary, who seated herself at the Lord’s feet and was continually listening to His teaching. But Martha was very busy and distracted with all of her serving responsibilities; and she approached Him and said, “Lord, is it of no concern to You that my sister has left me to do the serving alone? Tell her to help me and do her part.”” ‭‭LUKE‬ ‭10:38-40‬ ‭AMP‬‬ _______________________________ Martha and Mary, sisters by blood, were 2 complete opposites in the way they approached perfection and serving Jesus. Martha wanted to play the perfect host with the most. She wanted to impress Jesus. • Mary wasn't trying to please God according to societal and traditional expectations, she wasn't trying to live up to any standards. Instead she chose to rest in the presence of Jesus and to soak in his teachings and his presence. The bible tells us that: “But the Lord replied to her, “Martha, Martha, you are worried and bothered and anxious about so many things; but only one thing is necessary, for Mary has chosen the good part [that which is to her advantage], which will not be taken away from her.”” ‭‭LUKE‬ ‭10:41-42‬ ‭AMP‬‬. • Trying to live perfect lives can get very exhausting, very quickly. Something as rewarding as living for Jesus can become a burdensome chore if we start focusing on perfection and the world's standards of what an "ideal" woman should look like and what she should do. • Are you tired of trying to be perfect? Here's the solution- come and rest in the presence of Jesus. He knows you through and through. He does not expect you to be perfect or to feel like you're enough before you can get his approval. All He wants is your heart-all of it. He wants all of you. Yes, all of you; flaws, weaknesses and all! Why? Because He does some of his best work through weak but trusting individuals. __________________________ Dear sister, God already approves of you because of grace and because you are his daughter! So go ahead and kiss perfection goodbye! Have a blessed Thursday! 🌺 #edenspaceeternity #voun

Perhaps God has called you into ministry where you have to preach, sing or lead a congregation. . There are some cases in which God may have told you to "Apply for a position, you will get hired", or perhaps "Apply for school, you will get accepted". Perhaps God said to "call someone and give them a message", or "start this assignment, it will get completed". These are some examples but there are numerous other examples that can be listed. . The key point here is "what is your response to God when He said you CAN do something?" Sometimes we let doubt get in the way so we become reluctant to believe in what God said we can do. We may run away from the assignment and put ourselves in situations that are unrelatable to what God said or what God assigned. . Dear friends, please STOP running away from what God has called you to do. Don't limit yourself. Don't purposefully restrict yourself. . If God said you CAN then you CAN. Believe Him! . God will give you the tools needed to do what He has called you to do. He will give you the words to say. He will give you the wisdom & discernment. Just say YES God, and He will take care of the rest. . Keep in mind that you're not doing the work by your own strength but by the strength of God that is invested in you. Don't measure your ability to do something God has called you to do based on your personal strength, Look to His STRENGTH. Look to His POWER. Look to His ABILITY. . Believe God and trust Him in His Word. May God bless you.
