Last week I registered for two courses from Jennifer Eivaz. I actually went in with the intentions of registering for one and “accidentally” registered for the wrong one and went ahead and registered for the one I had intended to register for too. I clearly heard God tell me it was not on accident, but by His design that I had registered for the first course. I started one (the one I’d planned last week) and the other yesterday. I studied chapter 2 a good part of the day. This morning I was kicking myself. Lord, I wasted so much time yesterday and didn’t get anything I needed to get done, done. I.e. the house cleaned, grocery shopping done. I’m going to have to do those things today. My morning devotional was about burnout and it in, it talked about Mary and Martha. Immediately the Lord spoke to my heart and said you chose to be like Mary yesterday and that was needful. Today you rest.
I was feeling so guilty about the time I had spent immersed in my studies, but let me tell you this morning the Holy Spirit poured out over me and God had an on time word for His daughter that was a game changer for me! I’m sharing this because sometimes we get busy and don’t listen to what God says and miss so much. Martha was burdened with much to do, while Mary was all about her Father’s business. God had pressed on my heart for weeks to register for this course and I literally waited until 2:30 in the morning on the day after it started to move (thinking it started that day and then registering for two courses). I wasn’t sure I had time, I wasn’t sure it was for me, I wasn’t sure… if God says move, move. “But one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her. (Luke 10:42)” Is there a needful thing God is calling you to do in relationship to Him? I would like to encourage you to take the time to do it. Your relationship with Him will grow so much closer from it. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal
