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 being handed a major twist in your life plans! Mary gave us the perfect example of saying “yes” to God’s call. But to say yes…we first have to be open to hearing God speak to us. How many of us are taking quiet time to listen for God’s unique calling and inspiration? And how many of us really would rather not hear God’s message because it might require changes that we aren’t willing to make? Each of us has a choice. Will you keep the status quo which is safe but unsatisfying…or will you follow an inner voice calling you to risk tough changes that will lead you to fulfillment and becoming your true self?
