March 25, 2017 THE ANNUNCIATION OF THE LORD
Isaiah 7:10-14; 8:10
…the virgin shall be with child… Isaiah 7:14
But Mary said to the angel, “how can this be…? Luke 1:34
Lord, we live in a time when it seems we can ask Google any question and we’ll get the answer. There’s a YouTube video that will teach us how to do just about anything. Mary asks the angel a question Google couldn’t answer because the reply lies in the realm of faith. Your angel basically said “trust in God, Mary—he can do anything”. How is it, Lord that a young woman’s faith and trust come forth in her “yes”. Your mother put aside all reason and logic to accept the Father’s will. She allowed herself to be a vessel for God to come among us. Lord, so often I ask “why me” or “how can this happen? There are many question only faith can answer. So, today, Lord, may I trust in your and your spirit to fill in the blanks of my limited vision. Guide me to the peace of knowing you are always with me. Revel to me, Jesus, your glory and your gifts which are too grand for me to imagine or reason. Amen.
