Mary or Martha ?

     Mary and Martha were too completely different people. Martha was always busy and concerned about her house chores, but Mary took time to nurture her spiritual life and focus on the most important thing, JESUS!

Luke 10:38-42 :

38 Now it came to pass, as they went , that he 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, dost thou not care that my sister hath left me to serve alone? bid her therefore that she help me.

41  And Jesus answered and said unto her, Martha, Martha, thou art careful and troubled about many things: 

42 But one thing is  needful : and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her.



If we are not careful , we too can be like Martha. We can get so caught up in the cares of this world that we fail to focus on our relationship with JESUS! The things of this world will pass away , but our relationship with JESUS will last forever!!! Let's be like Mary today and always!!

Phillipians 4

Philippians 4

 1Therefore, my brethren dearly beloved and longed for, my joy and crown, so stand fast in the Lord, my dearly beloved.
 2I beseech Euodias, and beseech Syntyche, that they be of the same mind in the Lord.
 3And I intreat thee also, true yokefellow, help those women which laboured with me in the gospel, with Clement also, and with other my fellowlabourers, whose names are in the book of life.
 4Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, Rejoice.
 5Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand.
 6Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.
 7And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
 8Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
 9Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you.
 10But I rejoiced in the Lord greatly, that now at the last your care of me hath flourished again; wherein ye were also careful, but ye lacked opportunity.
 11Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.
 12I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need.
 13I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.
 14Notwithstanding ye have well done, that ye did communicate with my affliction.
 15Now ye Philippians know also, that in the beginning of the gospel, when I departed from Macedonia, no church communicated with me as concerning giving and receiving, but ye only.
 16For even in Thessalonica ye sent once and again unto my necessity.
 17Not because I desire a gift: but I desire fruit that may abound to your account.
 18But I have all, and abound: I am full, having received of Epaphroditus the things which were sent from you, an odour of a sweet smell, a sacrifice acceptable, wellpleasing to God.
 19But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
 20Now unto God and our Father be glory for ever and ever. Amen.
 21Salute every saint in Christ Jesus. The brethren which are with me greet you.
 22All the saints salute you, chiefly they that are of Caesar's household.
 23The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.

Everywhere I look........................

I see the beauty YOU have created


               I see Your wonder in the eyes of your creatures
 Nothing can live, Nothing can breathe
 Except that You sustain it
 The way the light shines through the forest
 reminds me of how great and marvelous YOU are!

" The heavens declare the glory of God ; and the firmament sheweth His handywork. " Psalms 19:1




Have a wonderful day in our LORD!
