25 Days of Christmas–Day 17

But from there you will seek the LORD your God, and you will find Him if you search for Him with all your heart and all your soul.  Deuteronomy 4:29



If only a photo could talk – this one would tell us a thousand words – truths that we all need to hear.    Stop worrying about things that will not affect eternity.  Stop doing things that can never help you become a truer picture of Christ to the world.   Stop talking more than you are listening.  Stop trying to be a pleaser – when you are already so deeply loved.   Stop trying to compete with a standard set by men- focus your eyes upon the prize – Jesus.   There is so much for us to learn by studying this photo and the passages from the bible on it.   Take time to refresh your memory and read through what Jesus spoke to Martha and Mary.   To get the full background go here. 

Yesterday, I couldn’t focus very well because too much is on my mind – so I put on my favorite songs and allowed Kari Jobe* to usher me right to throne room of grace.    There is no place I would rather be than sitting at His feet.   Oh to be Mary and soaking in every word Jesus spoke.  Oh to be Mary and hanging on His every word.   Oh to be Mary and so ready to learn, understand and do what is being asked of her.   Oh to be humble enough to know I can’t do a thing without my Savior completely in it!   

This song is my prayer for all of us – don’t let the world pull you away and keep you so busy that you forget to be still and to rest at His feet – where grace, mercy and love is poured out!

Together, let us seek Him with our hearts willing to listen, and to do whatever it is He has asked of us.   Together, let us worship Him, and praise Him for all the marvelous and wonderful things He has done!   Together, let us sit at His feet and drink from His cup – taste and see How good He is!
