Be Open

Luke 1:38

Mary said, “Behold, I am the handmaid of the Lord. May it be done to me according to your word.”

With this response, Mary delivers the line that is the most profound example for each of us on how to live our lives. I’m sure she had her own plan…her own vision for her life. But upon hearing from the angel what God’s plan was for her…to conceive Jesus by the power of the Holy Spirit and that the child would be called the “Son of God”…she says “yes.” Wouldn’t we all admit that what God wants for us would make us the most happy?  So wouldn’t it make sense to rely on a Greater Power to tell us who we are and why we’re here? What does God want for you? Saying “yes” to God will not mean a life of no troubles…but it will mean a life of purpose, peace and inner joy beyond measure.
