Precious Time with Jesus – v3

A lesson for each of us
for each one of us like Martha
so much to do
in our day to day
so many tasks
things to call our attention
so many things
to get in the way.

Each of us need to spend
precious time with Jesus
more important now
than it was on that day
when Christ spoke to Martha
as  He is no longer in the flesh
but Christ speaks from within us
ever needing nourishment
from God’s Word.

We need to spend time at His feet
listening for His message
for each beating heart
gaining strength from our God
His Spirit within us
to stand in the storms,
the trials that come
rooted and grounded in our Savior.
