Could you imagine, I mean SERIOUSLY imagine, an angel appearing before you saying "The Lord is with you!"? I would be just as confused and FREAKED out (not just disturbed) as I can only think Mary was on that day. These verses are pulled from the middle of the story and lose some context but the whole ideal is that she was trying to THINK what was meant instead of just relying on God's plan to RELAX and just walk quietly in HIS presence. It is a very hard thing to do just that - BE STILL and QUIET...especially with all of the electronic devices buzzing around us. Computers, phones, tv's, coffee makers, refrigerators, stoves, microwaves, etc....the list continues to grow; do we shut the all down and just enjoy the quietness? I love when the electricity goes out and I can enjoy the quietness as long as I can control how long it is out...but that is the whole thing...I need to relinquish control.
"Bow before ME as one who expects everything from his Savior. Let your soul keep silence before ME, however sad you feel your state to be. Be assured of this -- I will teach you how to pray." - A. Murray
I pray you have an amazing day! Remember YOU are beautiful/amazing and a child of the KING! Love you!
