“Martha didn’t need to earn God’s attention. She already had it simply because of the grace of God.” ~ Finding Rest in a Busy World (devotional)
I’m learning to find my significance in Him rather than from the “idol of productivity” (approval from others and self for performance).
This does not mean I’m doing nothing. It means, rather, that I’m learning to be content with doing what only God may be seeing. Since God has led me to this season, it seems He has deemed this a lesson I’ve needed to learn.
People tend to measure worth by the evidence of the presence and quality of productivity. But God sometimes calls us to obscurity so this cycle can be broken in our lives.
This is what it means to “Be Still.” It’s soul rest. It’s learning to trust that one’s place in God is enough.
