I spent some time with the Lord today
Kneeling at the Throne of Grace;
I went to Him on bended knees,
And met Him face to face.
The day was rushed, many tasks at hand,
I thought I had no time;
But I sought His counsel anyway
And His heart spoke to mine.
"What is it you must do today?
Are you doing it for Me?
Leave it in My hands, My child,
And spend more time with Me."
He taught me that my time with Him
Is more important than any task;
To seek Him daily, no matter what,
Is what my Father asks.

And Jesus answered and said to her,
"Martha, Martha you are worried and
troubled about many things. But one
thing is needed, and Mary has chosen
that good part, which will not be taken
away from her. (Luke 10:41-42)
