So often I have felt God’s nudge and I’ll respond with “Really? Seriously? Now? It’s just not the time, God. Come on!”
After hearing that she, a virgin, would give birth to our savior FROM AN ANGEL NONETHELESS, she simply said “May it be to me as you have said.”
She was thought to be 14 years old.
If that ain’t a bit humbling, I don’t know what is.
I am working on saying “May it be to me as you have said” when I feel God calling me to something that I don’t really want to do. “Working” being the operative word of course.
But I have a long way to go before I have a heart like Mary’s.
