Perfect Yes

Luke 1:38
Mary said, “Behold, I am the handmaid of the Lord. May it be done to me according to your word.”

This is Mary’s response to the angel’s news that she would conceive by the Holy Spirit and give birth to the Son of God. Talk about a major twist in plans for her life! But she gave us the perfect example of saying “yes” to God. Wouldn’t it be great if God would simply tell each of us what we needed to do to find fulfillment and happiness? Perhaps God is doing exactly that…but we aren’t listening. For us to hear…we have to empty ourselves so that there is a space for God to fill. A good practice is to set aside quiet time to listen for God’s unique message to each of us.
