And the angel of the Lord departed from her. Luke 1:38
Lord, You spoke
Like Mary…we heard
Lord, You announced
Like Mary…we believed
Lord, You promised
Like Mary… we conceived
But then it seemed like You departed
I have to wonder if Mary had some of the same questions
Did she wonder whether she heard right?
Could she think she just imagined what the Angel said?
Were there times that she labored and travailed to “keep keepin’ on?”
How did she summon courage as others doubted?
Was there vacillation in her resolve of hope?
Lord, like Mary…
Yes …we believed
Like her Lord
Help us to hold onto the
until Your “Appointed Hour”
In this quiet place
In this uncomfortable place
In this silent place
Sit with us, our Friend
Let the silence cause us to seek Your voice
Let the loneliness, draw us to You
Let the pondering cause us to grow in our trust of You
Keep us humble with a spirit of submission and surrender
as we learn to grow with the miracle of Promise
Lord, we believe in You
The Promised One!
Lord, like Mary we wait with expectancy, believing that we will be blessed.
We believe, that which You have promised, WILL BE fulfilled…Luke 1:45
