Martha, burdened with much serving, came to Him and said, “LORD, do You not care that my sister has left me by myself to do the serving? Tell her to help me.” The LORD said to her in reply, “Martha, Martha, you are anxious and worried about many things. There is need of only one thing. Mary has chosen the better part and it will not be taken from her.” Luke 10:40-42

Listen to overcome worry as you work to abide in what you hear.

Now I rejoice in my sufferings for your sake, and in my flesh I am filling up what is lacking in the afflictions of Christ on behalf of His body, which is the Church, of which I am a minister in accordance with God’s stewardship given to me to bring to completion for you the Word of God. Colossians 1:24-25

Martha, burdened with much serving, came to Him and said, “LORD, do You not care that my sister has left me by myself to do the serving? Tell her to help me.” The LORD said to her in reply, “Martha, Martha, you are anxious and worried about many things. There is need of only one thing. Mary has chosen the better part and it will not be taken from her.” Luke 10:40-42

Genesis 18:1-10, Psalm 15, Colossians 1:24-28 & Luke 10:38-42

We all know a few Martha’s and Mary’s in our lives who seem to take different paths of surrender to a Way of Christ either wanting to listen and learn or busy themselves with worry of work. It’s when we see the two types of personalities combined do we see the temperament of a saint who seeks nothing more than to do God’s Will in the honor of Truth every second of every day. Here, we find the joy of suffering for the Sake of God’s Word relishing in the “stewardship” choosing the better part that offers God’s only path to Heaven.

Yes, we must serve as well as listen ridding our anxiety for heeding the call of Truth. We must finds ways to help others identify with listening and working by Christ’s faith of charity. We will encounter the voice of Christ by listening to the hope of God’s Word. We will feel Christ’s love by the tears, God-bumps and lack of breath as you are whisked away in thoughts of adoration. Listen to overcome worry as you work to abide in what you hear. Amen.

We ask in prayer: Dear LORD, we pray we listen and act on Your Truth. Prayers for Dr. Cruz-Peluca. Greg Bishop has our constant prayers. LORD from Psalm 48:14c-15 I chant- “tell future generations: That this is God, our God for ever and ever. He will lead us until death.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.

I am yours in Christ,

Ephesians 6:17-20

Choose as Mary Jesus the Better Part of Life– Luke 10:38-42

Village to learn and listen
Worry by some who might
Forget the better part of glory
As Christ sits in their sight

Sisters to visit and ponder
Welcomed by Martha’s peace
Martha asked Him to make Mary work
As she listened to His love by His feet

Work was the stress of Martha
Jesus gave her a sigh
Anxious your heart to worry
Choose as Mary Jesus the Better Part of Life

Christ’s love can never be taken by strife

About Thomas Joe Cruz-Wiggins

My name is Thomas Joe Cruz-Wiggins. I first recognize Christ as my Savior in all things. I am married to my best friend and Soul-Mate in Christ, Antonia Cruz-Wiggins. I am a University of Florida graduate of Public Relations, a US Navy Veteran and a Montessori Elementary School Teacher. I love life and God's help of living it! I follow the Light of Christ in everything I do! I love writing poetry about the Lord and I create a new poem from each Scripture I discern in my daily mediations. You can almost follow the poem by looking at the readings for each day. I started sharing this small yet personal scripture study four years ago when one day I was reading the bible and the Holy Spirit moved me to share the verse with a group of about 40 Christian Men in my Emmaus Ministry who get together weekly to celebrate the Lord and talk about His Truth. Since then the number of people I share my study with has grown to over 650. I enjoy an open loving dialog about anything I write and I have strived to write what I know the Lord wants me to share steering clear of offending anyone’s spiritual beliefs because I share my work with people I meet in public when I strike up a conversation about the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It took almost 2 years to begin writing what the Holy Spirit leads me to say. I believe that all Christians must unite as One Body of Christ’s Love to accomplish the joy of living with love, honor and respect. I reach out to Humanity to share His Salvation be it Baptist, Catholic, Protestant, Episcopal or any other religion or belief. I seek to mirror His Compassion, His Simpleness, His Charity and His Love. While I am Catholic, I believe we must all unite in the Lord to become One Body in Christ to bring our children back to The Church. I am humbled to share my study with you. Please feel free to comment any time. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is my Joy because I am a Disciple of His Truth. I am honored to share my Bible study with anyone you may recommend. As always, I remain, Yours in Christ, Thomas Joe Cruz-Wiggins
