Let It Be Done to Me

When we are our true selves…God’s glory shines.

Luke 1:46-47

“My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord; my spirit rejoices in God my savior.”

Mary’s statement resonates in my heart.

When I am in the flow of the will of God…my inner-most-being exults.

No matter what struggles are in my life…there seems to be an inner calm…a certain “yes” that pervades my interior.

There are really no words to describe it accurately.

It is at the level of mystery.

When I am operating in the will of God I am saying yes to this great Mystery at work in me.

My egocentric desires are neutralized.

When I am in this state of being…I am my true self.

It’s not so much that I have done anything…it is more like it is being done to me!

I wish I could say this is the case all the time but it is far from it.

I must continually return to letting go and being present.

May we all surrender to God’s desires for us and like Mary say, “May it be done to me according to your word” (Luke 1:38).
