As I am scurrying around I am pondering over my devotion this morning. I know that angel showed up and told Mary to not be afraid and fall to pieces with this new mission ahead that GOD has given her to do. But really~ I am thinking to myself as I am putting on my make up. Didn't that angel know that her sweet baby Jesus was the Messiah that was born to die? What stress, anxiety and heartache she must have felt. That baby she would carry and love to pieces~that baby she nursed and loved more than her own life ~ that baby would one day be nailed to an old rugged tree and die for all man's rotten ugly sin. I know that is a run on sentence but I think that thought deserves one.
We are going to have hard days. We are going to face some steep mountains and very low valleys. We just might as well deal with the truth. Yet~ that angel knew her sweet innocent child was also her Saviour. Her Saviour that made it possible to live in all eternity. That baby was her Saviour that would never leave her or forsake her on the darkest of days.
What fear are you facing today? Your Saviour loves you so very much. You can trust Him as your Lord and Saviour for today and all eternity.
