Martha, Martha

Hello. 

My name is Jennifer and I am a Martha.

I want to be a Mary. I am working toward being a Mary, but that list, my list, just grows longer and longer. 

Most of the time I think, "If people would just pull their weight!" I mean, someone has to get things done. 

But what if, just what if- I am not the one God intends to do these things. 

God may be calling me to only pray for the need. If I put aside my need to fix, my need take action at every request, the right person will rise and accomplish it, maybe even better than myself?  

Could I be stealing someone's blessing? The blessing they might need by accomplishing a task that was meant for them? 

Even more than that, am I truly able to do the jobs God has meant for me if I am bogged down by taking on other's needs that could be better solved by someone else?

Galatians 6:4-5  says "Each one should test their own actions. Then they can take pride in themselves alone without comparing themselves to someone else, for each one should carry their own load."

Blessings,

Jennifer
