Mary Mary, who performed for Bishop T.D. Jakes’ swanky anniversary and birthday celebration Friday, is busy, busy, busy taping the second season of their self-titled WE tv reality show. But the duo admits in their Essence.com blog that keeping up the frenetic pace of career activity is a lot, but they’re somewhat addicted to their hectic lifestyle.
While some would be begging for a break and a vacation, Mary Mary confesses, “We don’t do well with doing nothing! If we’re home for too long we get anxious.”
Although they occasionally crave respite, rest, and relaxation, the desire for it wanes quickly. “When we get that break we cried, screamed and prayed for the last thing we ever actually do is rest. We know that’s foolish, but it’s the truth. There have been so many times in our lives when God’s direction to us has been a parade of four-letter words: stop, rest, wait and be still!”
In the transparent article, the two explain that God often steps in and allows delays to happen to force His children to rest. Though frustrating, they believe these periods of waiting are actually a good thing.
“There are times when God wants us still, simply because we are weary – run down and need to be built up for the next leg of our race,” write the “Go Get It” singers. “Getting ahead in life or just maintain life is hard work. But it’s even worse when we try to move through it too fast.”
Psalm 37:7a NIV is a great scripture to apply to the award-winning duo’s lesson. It says, “Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him.”
