"Mary Mary Quite Contrary"

"Mary Mary Quite Contrary"
Single Moms (Luke 10:38-42) 

Choose the one thing that can't be taken away. 
Praying and studying is the key to maintaining peace and comfort in your home, on your job in whatever you do. Martha would get bothered and anxious about what needed to be done; the task list.  And she would lose her peace about things of this world, not being the sweetest person to be around. But Mary chose prayer and to sit at the feet and get some WORD into her SPIRIT.  And it made her a bold, powerful, compassionate, peaceable and joyful type of woman.  Jesus gave moms Power and Authority just as HE gave to the disciples as HE sent them out in two's. Make sure your team "Mary Mary" (girlfriends, shopping buddies, gym friend etc.,) is undergirded with a prayer life and the WORD of GOD. Get you a "PFF" ( praying friend forever).  Or you may find yourself frustrated, fretting, worried, fearful, and doubtful about who GOD really is and what HE can do in your life.  Remember in the previous scriptures HE had given Power to the disciples over devils and to cure disease. And when your are a lamb among wolves, you need someone who can see and fight on your behalf and not cast you to them. Two are always better than one.

38 Now it came to pass, as they went, that he entered into a certain village: and a certain woman named Martha received him into her house.
39 And she had a sister called Mary, which also sat at Jesus' feet, and heard his word.
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.
