“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Luke 10: 41-42




Jesus said,

“Martha, Martha, you are worried and upset about many things,

but few things are needed – or indeed only one.”


– Luke 10: 41-42






We haven’t changed much, have we,

over the last two thousand years or so!

Like Martha, so many of us allow our duties to take over our life

and, as a result, we suffer from anxiety.


What Jesus is telling Martha,

indeed what He is telling us,

is that if we place God and our faith in Him foremost in our lives

– above everything else –

then our burdens will be made lighter.

God will console and counsel us

and help us find that perfect work-life balance that He wants all of us to have.


If you are feeling overwhelmed with family duties and concerns;

with doing your job or running your business;

with coping, in general,

then honour the Lord and He will honour you.






My Lord Jesus,

thank You for teaching me how to live and find peace

in this world which seems to be intent on keeping me busy and anxious

to the extent that I sometimes forget about You

and even, foolishly, put You aside.

Lord, You are all I need!
