Luke 1:46-47

“And Mary said: “My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord; my spirit rejoices in God my savior.”

Mary is perhaps our best example of someone putting aside her desires…and saying “yes” to God’s desires for her.

When asked if she would be the mother of the Son of God…you can imagine how radically that pulled the rug out from under the plans Mary had for her life!

And by saying “yes”…Mary’s life became an amazing adventure beyond any description.

God has plans for each of our lives.

Those plans might not be as grandiose…but they are plans that are uniquely ours.

No one else can live out the love of our Creator…like you can.

How does God want to be made flesh…in you?

How does God want to be birthed…through your life?

“Tune in” to the voice of Love in your heart. Set aside time for silent prayer, meditation, scripture reading and experiencing the awe and wonder of nature.

Then listen to your inner voice.

What are you drawn to in the name of goodness and compassion?

Start moving in that direction…and you will find yourself saying: “My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord; my spirit rejoices in God my savior.”
