I’ve often wondered what it meant to be a “Mary in a Martha world.” This is a daily battle for modern women. To stop getting caught up in the minutiae of daily life and to sit still long enough to hear the voice of God stir within them. I am such a master at busy-ness. But, I have a feeling that it’s all in response to a deeper issue. I wonder why I often forget my focus in life. I get to the point of overwhelmed-ness that I break. This is why I say I’m weak and not as strong as people think. I break. Often. It’s a common response to my busy-ness. But when you’re juggling so much, something is bound to be forgotten – and too often, for me, it’s God who is forgotten.
