Something About Mary

1 Sep

Matthew 1:18-25

Imagine this, Mary, Jesus mother was a virgin and she became pregnant by the Holy Spirit. An angel came to her to tell her the great news! Mary must have been overwhelmed by these words she did not expect to hear. This news must have made no sense to her. How did this happen?, Why her, What made God single her out to make her the mother of His son.
After the shock she accepted God’s plan for her life. But she was engaged to Joseph, not yet married. This had to been difficult, I remember feeling a little bit “scarlet letter” when I separated with Malachi & Mason’s Dad (due to circumstances beyond my control) pregnant with Mason. I could not imagine what it was like back in bible days, women who had (S-E-X) out of marriage were stoned. Joseph was a good man and stood at her side and married her. However I assume that rumors flew across town amongst the people (because that is what happens when people do not know the whole situation). Only having Joseph & Elizabeth there to talk to and to understand what was going on. I was so blessed with a strong support group of friends and family during my time of need.
Mary had God. She turned to Him in this time of need. She had to trust Him completely. Trust God was in complete control and that He knew what He was doing.
You and I can learn from Mary that God will come through for us NO MATTER WHAT the situation. Your life may not end up how you wanted it or thought of but it will end up better than you can ever imagine when you trust in Him.

Here are a few more verses about Trusting God in your Circumstances:

20 Whoever listens to what is taught will succeed,
and whoever trusts the Lord will be happy. (Proverbs 16:20, New Century Version)

7 The Lord is good,
giving protection in times of trouble.
He knows who trusts in him. (Nahum 1:7, New Century Version)

16 Because of these things, this is what the Lord God says:
“I will put a stone in the ground in Jerusalem,
a tested stone.
Everything will be built on this important and precious rock.
Anyone who trusts in it will never be disappointed. (Isaiah 28:16, New Century Version)

13 I pray that the God who gives hope will fill you with much joy and peace while you trust in him. Then your hope will overflow by the power of the Holy Spirit. (Romans 15:13, New Century Version)

    This was really good! Hubby and I were just talking about how Joseph pretty much disappeared from scriptures after “doing the right thing” altho we know they had more children and he was there when Jesus was 13 but not when Jesus was on the cross. Interesting to look at it from today’s perspective! I also felt a little “scarlet lettered” when I had to get divorced – it is not a nice feeling! I do know that God blessed me with the most amazing husband ever & I’m happier than I’ve ever been. Funny how things work out!
