Receive Me

. . . and a woman named Martha received him into her house. Luke 10:38

Receive me, Lord, as Martha
    once received you. It’s okay
        if you nag, complain about
            what’s not getting done.

I need that. But I also need
    the one thing needful,
        that good portion you dish up
            on a regular basis.
So, don’t get too
    anxious about me.
        I’ll calm down if you will.
            And I know you will.
