What God says about "busyness"

February 23, 2022

What God says about

This devotional is an excerpt from our brand new Distracted: 40 Days to Know God More & Live Freed Devotional. In this new tool, we address lies of the world and confront them with the truth of God.


Distraction: Busyness
 
First Thoughts:

Lie of the world: The more you "do" the more you are worth.
Truth of God: The best use of your time is with Me.

Devotional:

As Jesus and his disciples were on their way, he came to a village where a woman named Martha opened her home to him. She had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord’s feet listening to what he said. But Martha was distracted by all the preparations that had to be made. She came to him and asked, “Lord, don’t you care that my sister has left me to do the work by myself? Tell her to help me!”

“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: 38-42 NIV


What is the meaning of life? To accept Christ as our Savior and to follow Him the rest of the days of our lives. It takes daily discipline to slow down and assess "why" we are busy. Being "busy" and fueled by the strength of the Lord is a different type of "busy" than being motivated by proof of worth. 


Prayer / Application:

God, thank you for the reminder that the best use of my time is with you. I pray for a mind to recognize the motivation behind my "busy" so I might eliminate my desire to prove my worth through giving into hustle culture. Help me to rest with you more and work for you and you alone. Amen.
 

What is fueling the "busyness" in your life?

Dear Sister, we’ve got you covered! My HOPE for the women who will attend the Wheat + Honey retreat in 2024? Jesus, we believe that whoever is meant to be at this retreat WILL BE THERE.

Women from different places, walking in different stages ~ unlikely community? WATCH IT WORK. You’ll bond over vulnerable small group discussions (some may even name their small group squad ~ you know who you are LOL), lounging at the beach club and laughing about who gets the worst sunburn, sitting cozy out on the porches commiserating about the dating app scene (a big yikes), or watching an extraordinary Watercolor beach sunset sharing so much gratitude. Seeing the women that attend experie...

Are you dreaming of a fulfilling break from reality? Imagine this…First steps on the beach revealed bright white sugary sand against the shimmering emerald waters of the Gulf. Breathing deeply, eyes closing, soaking in the delicious salty air aromas. Digging my toes into the warm sand, grounding myself in a delightful way. Letting the sun kiss my skin in a long awaited reunion for this pasty gal, lol. Hearing the crashing of waves, the buzz of laughter, and the soft tones of chatter. Feeling ...
