Worry Not

Mary was clearly the best choice to bring forth little baby Jesus. One thing that always shocked me about Mary was she didn’t worry about Joseph, what he would think, or if he would even still marry her. To her it only mattered that she was trusted with this amazing gift.

I think of the many, many teen abortions today when I think of Mary. A lot of girls are lost and feel they ‘don’t have a choice’ Mary didn’t think ‘what are my parents going to think?’ or ‘Is Joseph going to believe me?’

One of my favorite factors in all of this was that here she was engaged, probably really excited about all the materialistic thing, the wedding, moving away from her parents, starting a family. When this happened. Her worldly relationships were nothing to her compared for her love of our Father. While we are called to love people, no one should be more important to us than the Father.
Matthew 22:37 says  “Jesus replied ‘Love the Lord your God will all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind”
Did you catch that? ALL of you need to be with God, not bits of you, or what’s left over. No one should ever come close to your love for God. And with Mary, no one did.

She didn’t try to run away or hide from her fiancé Joseph. She didn’t know that later an angel of the Lord would appear to Joseph and tell him that she was conceived by the Holy Spirit. (Matthew 1:20)
She just had faith that no matter what anyone thought of her, God would bring forth this little innocent baby through her.
Do you worry about what people will think before you obey God? Or do you follow head first and hope for the best and know that strong relationships will last through any trial? I encourage you, be more like Mary!
~1 Peter 5:7 “Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.”~

    Exactilioso! This is the true test of our FAITH–do we move forward–eyes front? Or do we sneak a glance here and there to check out the terrain, the responses of others?
    Good on ya, darlin’.
