She didn’t plan to abandon tradition.
She didn’t plan to be the subject of whispers in the market place.
She didn’t plan to cause her betrothed shame or humiliation.
She certainly didn’t plan to become the mother of God’s Son.
His plan would turn her life upside down.
His plan would stretch her faith beyond its limits.
His plan would bring her blessings, joy and honor.
His plan would save, not only her, but the entire world.
To the revelation of God’s plan for her life, Mary answered, “May it be done to me according to your word.”
And what a plan it was!
Now, imagine the difference in your life if you would only allow God’s plans to interrupt yours.
