At His feet that He reminds me that when I am found in Him I leave nothing to be desired.
It's when I am there that I am renewed, refreshed, and find a place where I am caused to be changed. I wish I could be more intentional about taking the time to sit at Jesus' feet. To look into His eyes as He gently reminds me that I am His. At His feet where He tells me of His love for me. At His feet that He reminds me that when I am found in Him I leave nothing to be desired.
Mark 14:3-9 tells of Mary anointing Jesus with a priceless gift. I want to be Mary. I want to have her heart. I want to stop in the midst of the craziness and just sit and be with Jesus.
When I sit with Jesus, I find:
A place I belong. I often find myself trying to determine where I belong. When I'm in a group of older people, I feel out of place at times, when I'm with a group of male pastors, I feel different. When I sit with Jesus He reminds me that I really do
belong. I am His. I matter. Not what I do. I matter.
What I believe about Jesus comes to the surface. Do I believe that Jesus will give me enough hours today to accomplish all that needs to be done? Do I believe that He's enough to sustain me? That He will provide the volunteers needed for ministry? That He will continue to provide me with creative ideas? When I sit at His feet I believe He is enough.
My behaviors are changed when I sit with Jesus. I find that I am no longer consumed with my to do list. I am now consumed with Him. Jesus has a plan for my day. If I sit with Him and know His will it will change my behaviors. I realize that He is in charge. It's no longer about what I am able to accomplish in a day, it becomes about me bringing glory to Him.
Do you belong at the feet of Jesus today? Take time in the middle of ministry mayhem and sit. Be still. Believe He's enough. Find your place of belonging like none other. Allow His presence today to change your behaviors.
How about you? What do you do to find rest at the feet of Jesus? In what ways does this change you?
