Choose thàt One Thing

Mary chose that one thing…

Today is day 120 of the lockdown here in South Africa! For me, it means one thing at a time, one day at a time. When life feels like it’s becoming a bit too overwhelming, choose that one thing! I’ve learnt from the best: Mary chose well. She loved the Lord’s presence…His nearness. Everything else could wait.

I am choosing that One Thing…

It’s not always easy to just let go of the things that overwhelm me. There are just too many distractions in my day and at times it feels like my TO-DO lists are longer than my time spent in His presence. Although He’s always with me, I am not always living with that awareness and so, I miss out. I miss out on hearing His heart’s desire for me. When He wants to share His secret joys with me and my heart is not postured to His, I miss out. Many times this missing out leaves me depleted and burdened. Can you relate?

Today, together, let us choose ONE THING that matters, one thing that fills, one thing that heals, one thing that sustains, one thing that refreshes our soul, one thing that’s of deep eternal value, and then, be wholeheartedly present in it!

Mary chose one thing…the thing that refreshed her soul: Precious time with Jesus Christ.

“But only one thing is necessary. Mary has chosen the good portion, and it will not be taken away from her.”

Luke 10:42

Blessings for a beautiful day and season.
