But one thing is necessary...
...Mary has chosen the good portion, which will not be taken away from her.”
(Luke 10:42 ESV)

Yesterday, I got to spend some sweet time with my new friend named Tracy. She lives in Alvin, and is the sister of Tim, who is a member of RiversEnd Community Church with Kalen and I. Tracy came to our church service last weekend and a sweet word was spoken over her by our pastor. Our pastor said "God has called you to be a Mary"... A Mary is one who does extravagant things for the Lord, but most importantly is called to be super intimate with Jesus.
This is something that has been spoken over my life as well; so to meet a sister in Christ like Tracy is very refreshing & encouraging!
"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.”
(Luke 10:38-42 ESV)
Here's some pictures from our great time at the Beach, thankful for God's goodness towards us!
Can you see what it says? :o)
After the beach, we went back to her house, where I found a room decorated with scriptures on flashcards! Love that!
A lovely day with a sweet sister in Christ!
Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, making the best use of the time, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is. And do not get drunk with wine, for that is debauchery, but be filled with the Spirit, addressing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody to the Lord with your heart, giving thanks always and for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, submitting to one another out of reverence for Christ.
(Ephesians 5:15-21 ESV)
