Being Mary in a Martha World

Remember Martha and Mary? Sometimes when we sit down like Mary to pray, Martha shows up with a to-do list. Suddenly it seems necessary to do all the forgotten tasks of the day right at that very moment! But our daily service for God must be balanced with quietly sitting with God and just listening to him. This is much harder than we think but definitely worth our efforts to commit to spending uninterrupted time with God – it’s how we fill our hearts for service. Here’s something to help you deal with distractions in prayer.
