Word of the Day.... November 26, 2012

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything
by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving
let your requests be made known to God.
Philippians 4:6

Anxious. It literally means "to be divided" or "distracted." . . . When we hear this word what comes to our mind?  Martha and Mary are the perfect example of this in Luke 10:38-42.  Martha is excited to have Jesus in their home is she is very busy making sure that everything is perfect.  As she looks into the next room she sees her sister Mary sitting at the feet of Jesus.  She is soaking in all of His great teaching and enjoying fellowship with Him. Martha was irritated with Mary because she was able to spend quality time with Jesus and Martha was busy cooking.

Jesus didn’t care about the meal.  He cared about Martha.  He would have preferred to of had a simple dish so that He could have enjoyed time with her.  I think we have all had this happen in our lives and we get angry and anxious with different things happening in our lives.  We need to take time out for Jesus.  Take all of our cares to Him in prayer and thanksgiving.  He really does love us and wants to be the center of our lives.  We just have to allow Him to.  I hope you have a wonderful Monday!!!  God bless you!!!
