I'm so thankful that I read the book, Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World, by Joanna Weaver. It shares what Christian women need to know about having true intimacy with God amidst the society pressures to be everywhere and do everything.
The book begins by sharing the story of sisters, Mary and Martha, who responded differently when Jesus came to visit. Martha busily moved around the house making sure things were ready while Mary sat at Jesus' feet listening and taking in every word. I think that most of us are more often like Martha; we are too busy moving about, that we don't stop and spend time with our Saviour. We forget to be like Mary, whom Jesus said had "chosen the better part."
Having a deep relationship with the Lord is more important than being busy simply because the pressure is on us to be so. The author gives encouragement and insight on how to begin having intimacy with God so that it flows into loving service for Him and the people He places in our life.
I highly recommend this book if you haven't read it yet. I'm sure you can find it at your local library and check it out like I did. Your heart will be encouraged and challenged.
