She was thoroughly shaken, wondering what was behind a greeting like that. But the angel assured her, “Mary, you have nothing to fear. God has a surprise for you: You will become pregnant and give birth to a son and call his name Jesus.
He will be great,
be called ‘Son of the Highest.’
The Lord God will give him
the throne of his father David;
He will rule Jacob’s house forever—
no end, ever, to his kingdom.”
~ Luke 1:30-33
Mary continued to think of others, up to, during and after Jesus was born. She paid him heed, she heard his voice. Of course there was that incident at the temple where he wandered off to his father’s house… But she did her level best to teach him all that he would need for the journey.
I don’t know what surprises God has for you in this journey, but I do know that God has great plans for you. You have come through so much. Don’t keep moving until Christmas stuff is “done.” Sit. Receive the full blessing of the gift He has given you. Tell your sister. Don’t let her die without knowing the joy of the Lord. Help her let go of all the awful things that were visited upon you as children.
You are a child of God. Sit still and just be held. That moment that you take for you will have long lasting affects in all that you plant from here on in.
Because of Him,
