TWO day until Christmas...
FOURTY-THREE days until I go to Uganda...
ONE HUNDRED AND EIGHTY-FOUR days until I get married!!!!

Things are so busy....Fun, but busy...
I was reminded this morning of the importance of taking time, even if its just a few spare minutes, to sit at my precious Jesus' feet.

Now as they went on their way, Jesus entered a village. And a woman named Martha welcomed him into her house. And she had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord's feet and listened to his teaching. But Martha was distracted with much serving. And she went up to him and said, “Lord, do you not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Tell her then to help me.” But the Lord answered her, “Martha, Martha, you are anxious and troubled about many things, but one thing is necessary. Mary has chosen the good portion, which will not be taken away from her.”

A verse that I spotted on the Girl Talk blog is Proverbs 3:6: “In all your ways acknowledge him.” Here's a quote from Charles Bridges’ pertaining to this scripture also found on the Girl Talk blog.

"Take one step at a time, every step under Divine warrant and direction. Ever plan for yourself in simple dependence on God. It is nothing less than self-idolatry to conceive that we can carry on even the ordinary matters of the day without his counsel. He loves to be consulted...Consider no circumstances too clear to need his direction. In all thy ways, small as well as great; in all thy concerns, personal or relative, temporal or eternal, let him be supreme. Who of us has not found the unspeakable 'peace' of bringing to God matters too minute or individual to be entrusted to the most confidential ear?"

I pray that my heart is most importantly focused on Christ during this busy season! What could be more important that sitting at Jesus' feet? May my gaze be captivated by Jesus, more of Jesus!
