Living and Loving In the Present: How I Learned to "Mary My Martha-ness."

 Press Play          

---Martha, dear Martha, you’re fussing far too much and getting yourself worked up over nothing. One thing only is essential, and Mary has chosen it— and won’t be taken from her.”( Luke 10:41-42).

Once upon a time, my hubby's biggest complaints about me was that I was rarely "in the present" with him. In this episode, I explain what this means and share how I learned to Mary my Martha-ness and deal with this common relationship killer.

Misery loves company *group hug*

Drifting away doesn't bother me as much as singing along to gospel songs and realizing that i wasn't deliberately worshiping God but moving my lips and thinking of something else and i'm ashamed to admit that i get carried away in church too :(

There is always so much going on but it's a shame that God has to compete for our attention. I pray for His forgiveness and divine intervention.

Have a blessed Easter weekened.

This sometimes happen to me but not very often as you have perhaps shown in this post. Have you heard that saying ma, that, "a good listener is usually thinking about something else"?

*Just to crack you up* lol

Have a blissful weekend ma.

I can relate as well.. I think my attention span is a bit short :( ...

I would be praying on my way to work and in the prayer remember something else, and then my mind starts to drift from there.. then, come back to the prayer. it's weird
But I guess the woman's mind and brain was created to be a multi-tasker?

waiting for the rest :)

Anony: Girl, I am talking to you, me and about 10000 other christians out there. LOL…. one thing I want to point out to you, in regards to your comment about your scripture reading, is that your walk with God is YOUR WALK. You could read one verse of scripture and be in the spirit for 10 years, yeah, God’s word is that powerful! Don’t ever think there is a race, or biblical reading tempo you have to keep up with. Some people read 10 chapters a day and gain absolutely nothing… Do your thang girl, let no one tell you different.

Aha! I used to be such a dreamer. God taught me to use my imagination. When reading d bible or listening to a song or sermon, I begin to create images, like a movie, of d ongoing. Not perfect, but it works
