As we have officially entered into the last month of the year, I believe that God wants to remind each reader not to miss the moments placed right before them. When I thought about missed moments, the bible story that came to mind was about two sisters named Mary and Martha:
“38 As Jesus and his disciples were on their way, he came to a village where a woman named Martha opened her home to him. 39 She had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord’s feet listening to what he said. 40 But Martha was distracted by all the preparations that had to be made. She came to him and asked, ‘Lord, don’t you care that my sister has left me to do the work by myself? Tell her to help me!’ 41 ‘Martha, Martha,’ the Lord answered, ‘you are worried and upset about many things, 42 but few things are needed – or indeed only one. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her (Luke 10:38-42 NIV).”
Thank you for carrying us over into the last month of 2019. Thank you for being a guardian over our lives and for covering us in areas where we didn’t know we needed covering. For every moment that you have blessed us with that we may have taken for granted, Lord we say thank you. Thank you for being patient, loving and kind towards us. Thank you for doing all that you do and for being you. God we pray that we do not miss any moments that you place before us throughout this month. Open our eyes, to be able to recognize the significance of what is in front of us and help us to maximize every moment. In Jesus name we pray, amen.
