Martha’s desire to please clouded her willingness to trust. I understand this mistake of Martha’s perhaps more than any other.  Given the choice to please God or to trust God, good girls become conflicted.  We know we’re supposed to trust God, but trust is so intangible.  It almost seems passive in the face of all there is to do.”
Emily P. Freeman, Grace for the Good Girl

I’m still working slowly through the gospel of John, with its refrain of “Believe, believe,” and I find myself bumping into that refrian other places, too.  God has a point to make with me, maybe?
