More from Luke 1

A Choice we all have to make for ourselves.  Do we believe or not?

Mary sets such an amazing example.  I continue to be fascinated with this amazing young woman and her choice to believe knowing what she might be facing.  Yet rather than focus on the bad things that might happen she made a choice to believe God would work it all out.

She had to have made this choice.  After all, if she didn't how could she have taken one step forward from the moment that Gabriel left her?  She knew she could die.  She knew that Joseph could have her stoned.  Yet, she continued to take each step and believe that God indeed went before her.

I love the story of Elizabeth and Mary.  The strength she gained from words of encouragement that Elizabeth gave her and the love that she needed to face the unknown.  Elizabeth gave her these beautiful words in Luke that will
just fill any of us with hope, if we listen to them.

Blessed is she who has believed that what the Lord has said to her will be accomplished.

It's is a choice we each must make.  Do we choose to believe the words that God gives us through His Word?  Do we want to believe?

It is my prayer that each day you will be filled with hope, joy, and strength to believe God's words.  Don't believe the words shouted at us daily in this world of doom and gloom.  Believe the words of God that fill you with hope, joy, love, compassion, and strength!

Listen to the same verse above from the Message bible ~
Blessed woman, who believed what God said, believed every word would come true!

Believe the words will indeed come true!

Sweet blessings,
