Sometimes I focus too much on the doing. I “Marthasize” too much – focusing on the action for God.
This is important and necessary. I believe God does call us to an active faith, to be His hands and feet.
However, He also requires “Mary time.”
Time where we simply praise and worship Him.
Time to sit at His feet in wonder and gratitude.
Time to be completely overwhelmed as we sink into the depth of His love for us…despite our unworthiness.
Time to build and revel in a relationship with our Father…building and clinging to our identity in Him.
“We are not saved only to be Instruments for God, but to be His sons and daughters…He does not turn us into spiritual agents, but into spiritual messengers, and the message must be a part of us.” (My Utmost for His Highest)
