Humbled at His Feet

I have not perfected the art
Of balancing the start
Of God’s gathering
A ministry
Tapping into far and wide
Sometimes hearts collide
At home and abroad
If it is a track of striving, a kingdom workers facade
Too many things on the list to do

Wasn’t Martha right and true?
To whom, true to whom? says the Lord
I cried out
To be forgiven

“Show me, Lord
Your way for me”
I will not reveal more until you are ready


“Yes, my Lord”
Humbled with head lowered
I sit at His feet
Pouring out me
Seeking His face
“I am sorry, Jesus.
I have lost my pace, even my place”
You are right where you need to be,
Close and listening to Me 


Martha was “distracted by all the preparations that had to be made”. She asked Jesus to tell her sister Mary to help her (Luke 10:40).

“Martha, Martha,” the Lord answered, “you are worried and upset about many things, but few things are needed-or indeed only one. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.” (Luke 10:41-42).


It happens to all of us. We lose our focus, take our eyes off Jesus to finish our to-do’s, to be the best we can be at serving. There is a line that gets crossed, and the enemy is expert and getting us to cross it. May do a longer post on this #abidedon’tstrive

Balance is an art, but it can only be perfected by the grace and love from Jesus. So go to Him if your life feels outta whack. He is waiting for you.

Have a blessed weekend.

In Christ,

  1. Thank you for this Julie, I know my name is Mary, but how often do I act like Martha! Those prayer times in the morning sometimes are swallowed up quickly with our earthly responsibilities and we can lose our footing quickly. A sweet reminder that we answer to Him alone.

    1. Well, Mary, my name is Julie and I got swept last week acting like Martha. Tee hee. Truly, I am thankful for His humbling and ever-patient love that brought me to these words. Have a rest-full evening, dear friend.
