Lord, some days, I’m just too busy,
with everything that I must do
and I don’t have much time
to spend alone with you.
I’ve got a list of to-do’s,
that is at least a mile long
I work my finger to the bones
so my time with You ~ I prolong.
Lord, I get so distracted,
with all the noises in my head
voices telling me ~ before You
they must always, be put ahead.
They yell and scream at me,
they order me what to do
leaving me no quiet time . . .
to spend with only You.
Lord, I’m so exhausted,
at the end of my busy day
I find it hard to concentrate
when I go to bed and pray.
My mind really isn’t in it,
I know that this is wrong
but, I’m still working on that list
and now its a million miles long.
Lord, teach me what’s important,
and what I need to omit . . .
for I just want to be with You
and would be delighted to ~ just sit!
King James Version
“But Martha was cumbered about much serving,
and came to him, and said, Lord,
dost thou not care that my sister
hath left me to serve alone?
bid her therefore that she help me.
And Jesus answered and said unto her,
Martha, Martha, thou art careful
and troubled about many things:
But one thing is needful:
and Mary hath chosen that good part,
which shall not be taken away from her.”
Deborah Ann Belka
