“Why are you anxious?”

Gospel Reading: Luke 10:38-42

38 Now as they went on their way, he entered a village; and a woman named Martha received him into her house. 39 And she had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord’s feet and listened to his teaching. 40 But Martha was distracted with much serving; and she went to him and said, “Lord, do you not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Tell her then to help me.” 41 But the Lord answered her, “Martha, Martha, you are anxious and troubled about many things; 42 one thing is needful. Mary has chosen the good portion, which shall not be taken away from her.”

WHAT IS THE LORD PERSONALLY SAYING TO ME?

I Am that “One Thing”…  I Am the Way, the Truth and the Life…  Many are Anxious and worried but I will show you the way and give you rest.  No other “Thing” can do that.

“I Am the Lord, there is No Other…” ~ Isaiah 45:5-6

WHAT DOES THE LORD PERSONALLY WANT ME TO DO? 

Yes, time is needed in serving my family…  But as long as I spend time through out the day and week with the Lord in prayer, meditation, adoration, retreats, etc. that time will give me the energy and charitable attitude I need to love and serve my family well.

MY PRAYER…

Lord, I know that I need to spend time serving my family like Martha, but only want to spend time with you in prayer and meditation like Mary.  Help me to serve my family well in the evenings knowing that it will be pleasing to you and that I will be able to be with you through out my days.

Healed

Gospel Reading: Luke 9:11-17  

11 When the crowds learned it, they followed Him; and He welcomed them and spoke to them of the kingdom of God, and healed those who needed to be cured. 12 Now the day began to wear away; and the twelve came and said to Him, “Send the crowd away, to go into the villages and country round about, to lodge and get provisions; for we are here in a lonely place.” 13 But He said to them, “You give them something to eat.” They said, “We have no more than five loaves and two fish — unless we are to go and buy  food for all these people.” 14 For there were about five thousand men. And He said to His disciples, “Make them sit down in companies, about fifty each.” 15 And they did so, and made them all sit down. 16 And taking the five loaves and the two fish He looked up to heaven, and blessed and broke them, and gave them to the disciples to set before the crowd. 17 And all ate and were satisfied. And they took up what was left over, twelve baskets of broken pieces.
