“ Jesus never asked Martha to be Mary!”
In this episode, my new friend and author of "Made Like Martha: Good News for the Woman Who Gets Things Done," Katie Reid, shares her grace awakening story and God's invitation to rest.
Katie reminds us that being made like Martha does not disqualify us from intimacy with God! He is not looking to change your giftings or your personality type. He longs to meet you in the midst of who He created you to be.

Important Takeaways from Show

* Jesus was not rejecting Martha, He was inviting her to receive her share of the inheritance. It was an invitation, not condemnation!
* Grace is a gift to be received, not a prize to be earned.
* You will never measure up when perfection and performance are your goals.
* Living from a place of grace empowers us to do what He has created us to do.
* Three helpful steps:

* 1. Say "Yes" to God's assignments
* 2. Say "No" to guilt and manipulation
* 3. Say "help" and invite people to join you

* Productivity can be kryptonite for Martha personalities when we think that is where our worth comes from.
* Spiritual growth tip: start making a list of what God reveals to you about Himself in your time together and continue praying over it throughout the day.
* Sabbath rest and setting boundaries are key priorities for Martha personalities to enjoy intimacy with God.
* God offers to give us rest, inner tranquility in the midst of necessary labor.
* God's gift to you today is that it is not all up to you!
