With social media an everyday thing, filtrating into our homes, our work lives, we need to realize it does have effects on how we measure our worth as it dictates to us the way our lives should look…
Thanks for joining us for Monday’s Message with Abigail Rice and Trench Classes United. Today’s poem is a great reminder that our worth is not based on what we tend to base it on.
In this world
Is almost always measured in monetary growth
While in heaven
It is measured
Simply by being a creation of the One True King
In mundane moments
spent living in between
The people of this earth
So that they too may know their true worth
& in those seemingly simple moments
Spent being fully present
You are making a difference
Simply by being the human that you are
And that is all
Use your talents, yes
Give them freely
Or charge a penny
It is up to YOU and the moments of quiet time you have the Creator
Praying and interceding
Listening in to what this season may need
A Mary or a Martha?
For me right now,
I feel a big transitioning
From being a - need to always be doing everything Martha
To simply remembering I can also sit at His feet
And still be doing exactly what I need
So get true
How are you spending your time?
Are His people at the front line?
Or are the walls of your boundaries unable to be brought down
To meet the people standing right next to your kitchen sink?
Listen to that inner being
And ask the Spirit within
Where are You leading?
I say this with fully knowing
And somewhat hoping
That from this season of “rest”
Spending more time with God than I have ever spent
I am soaking up as much as I can
Letting Him fill my cup
Because I know soon enough
He will pour me out
Where there is NO room left for doubt
So for now
I will take in this sweet season of freedom
As I let the days sweep me away
Calling me to whatever may come my way
& no matter what it may be
I remind myself
God is always working behind the scenes
Even if all I do is simply sit at His feet.
“Now as they were traveling along, He entered a village; and a woman named Martha welcomed Him into her home. She had a sister called Mary, who was seated at the Lord’s feet, listening to His word. But Martha was distracted with [a]all her preparations; and she came up to Him and said, “Lord, do You not care that my sister has left me to do all the serving alone? Then tell her to help me.” But the Lord answered and said to her, “Martha, Martha, you are worried and bothered about so many things; but only one thing is necessary, for Mary has chosen the good part, which shall not be taken away from her.” - Luke 10:38-42
