I’m Needing What’s Needful

Luke 11:40-42
40 But Martha was cumbered about much serving, and came to him, and said, Lord, dost thou not care that my sister hath left me to serve alone? bid her therefore that she help me.41 And Jesus answered and said unto her, Martha, Martha, thou art careful and troubled about many things:42 But one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her.

We’ve had great times of prayer at our church all week. The last session is tonight, and then revival begins Sunday. The devil has been fighting us tooth and toenail all week. Laci has an ear infection, and Leslie has some terrible fungus on her scalp. (She’ll be on medication for 6 weeks!!) I am going to be cooking for the Evangelist, and therefore I need my house to be clean for company! We’ll need around 12 outfits a day (2 for each of us) for the duration of the meeting. Oh, did I mention I homeschool? Today I need to clean my house, then go down and help the ladies clean the church. I am about to go make my Saturday visits, and I must prep for Super Church.
Already I feel overwhelmed and somewhat defeated…can I survive a revival? I feel worn out from “revival preparation”! If Satan can get me so “cumbered about much serving” as Martha was, then I will miss the “one thing that is needful”- the best part! I suppose you could say “I need what’s needful”. I don’t want to miss out on Revival! If no one else gets anything, I want to.
At every prayer meeting, the Lord helped me get a step closer to seeing a revival in my own heart. The first 2 nights, I couldn’t really even pray for others because God was bringing to light some things I needed to let go of in my own life! He was purifying me, I guess. And I always need that!
Please be in prayer for our church. Yes, we’d love to see souls saved, and folks added to the church. But not for our glory, for God’s!
Because of the “busy-ness” of the forthcoming week, I may not be able to post daily. I will definitely post blessings from the revival meeting when I can. Thank you for stopping by, and thank you for praying for my church! And please…pray for me!

  1. I pray that the girls you visit will attend church, and I pray that Paige will come tomorrow. I get tired thinking of your schedule and responsibilities, but I know God will give you the strength and stamina you need.
    I love you.
