Then out of the blue this stranger says, “Hey, girl, calm down, it’s okay, God has picked you out of all the girls around to have you carry his Son. You will give birth to this child and you will call him Jesus.” Wait a minute, that is so far fetched, there is no way, I have never slept with a man, how can this happen? The stranger answers “Yes there is a way, young one. The Holy Spirit will come down on you and the power of God will cover you. Anything is possible with God.”
I can’t imagine I would tell this stranger that I understand everything he is saying and I do want to serve God with all my heart. So I will wait for this to happen.
How could I show my face when everyone knew I was not married, but pregnant? Then when the time came to have this baby holding him in my arms, knowing that some day I would watch him suffer, a very brutal death, to save the world. How could I do that?
How could she have possibly done this? As we approach this Christmas Season let us remember Jesus is our “HERO", He is the Reason! As an empty nested mother I would have to say that Mary is my unsung hero this Christmas, because She gave birth to Jesus and later let go of him trusting God to finish her job.
Thank you God for choosing Mary and not me!
