Scripture reference: James 4:8 (ESV)
As today is the first day of Lent, how about choosing to give up things like worry and self-doubt, which can create distance between you and God.
In fact, this is the same reminder that Martha needed. Shortly after Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead, Mary and Martha threw a huge celebration dinner for Jesus. During the party, Martha spent her time worrying about all of the party details.
Meanwhile, Mary was found at Jesus’ feet, because she knew the importance of plugging into her source, who was Christ.
Eventually, Martha complained to Jesus, asking him whether it seemed fair that Mary spent her time sitting while she spent her time stirring around trying to make everything perfect.
Jesus told Martha that there was only one thing worth being concerned about and that was something that Mary had already discovered.
Let us begin to lay the groundwork for a good Lent season by remembering these few words:
“Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you…” James 4:8
This has been your B Moment. Your moment to be still…to be fed by the Word of God…to be grateful.

So today, replug and renew.
Thank you. I literally can take this onboard. I was successful in a job and was offered it yesterday. My first response internally was self doubt and worry if I can do it. Thank you
Thank you so much for sharing this, because so many of us can relate firsthand. Congrats on your new job too!
