I also find that blogging has become something I am intentionally not making time for. It has less interest to me in this season of my life. Spending time with people I love, and keeping myself and my home a happy and peaceful place for my husband and guests is more of a priority, than talking about what is happening in my heart and life in a public forum.
This post is to share with you, my friends, the importance of RESTING IN THE LORD. The end of the year is a time of hustle bustle and stress for numerous reasons. But the two of us go against the flow, with most things, and definitely with this trend. We are intentional as we finish out the year, to reflect on all the LORD has accomplished in and around us, to magnify His name, sit at His feet and to meditate on the precious lessons we learn at Jesus side. To prepare ourselves and have our ear turned to Him as we round the corner into a new year.
I have a popular chapter in my book about this, but it's a great time to remember the lesson of Martha. Martha had invited the Lord into her home, and was staying busy and getting upset, not serving peacefully with a loving heart. Jesus even said she was worried and upset about a lot of things regarding her business. Her sister Mary was sitting at Jesus' feet, being ministered to and being filled with His presence, and Jesus reminds us today, "Mary chose the better." So, just an encouragement friends, it's OK to say NO to social things, and more beneficial to spend time in God's word and presence. You will come away bearing the fragrance of Christ, who came for us.
How silently, how silently, the wondrous gift is given.
So God imparts to human hearts, the blessings of His heaven.
No ear may hear His coming, but in this world of sin,
where meek souls will receive Him still, the dear Christ enters in.
