What is "needed"

As a woman,  God has blessed us with many roles.  It may feel like we have a lot to do.  But it is not as it seems.  We need to allow those roles to flow naturally through the power of the Holy Spirit.  In the book of Genesis before Abraham became a father, God had already seen him as a father of many nations
Genesis 17:5
No longer shall your name be called Abram, but your name shall be Abraham; for I have made you a father of many nations. 

The process of faith is what makes manifest the plan of God for your life, not your striving.  The Holy Spirit does not produce striving but rather peace.  Remember Jesus refers to Himself as the "Prince of Peace. 
Isaiah 9:6
For unto us a child is born, Unto us a Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder and His name will be called "Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

Anything that comes from Jesus in your life should produce peaceful fruit. 

As I was beginning to clean and tidy up, with my 19 month old home and my 6 year old.  I heard in my spirit "Do things that make for peace"  As seasons of our life changes there are different things that become needful for us to do.  Well we can't do it all, so we should do the "needful" things on a daily basis.

Luke 10:41
And Jesus answered and said to her, "Martha, Martha, you are worried and troubled about many things.  But one thing is needed, and Mary has chosen that good part, which will not be taken away from her

Mary was seated at Jesus's feet, but God has shown me something else about that scripture.  It's not just about sitting and reading God's word, it's about being able to pick and choose what is needful to do and what is not needful at different seasons in your life.  It's something to thing about.
