Mary’s words: Let it be.
Surrendered. Strong. What bravery she had when unexpected news forever changed plans and altered her schedule. Mary hadn’t planned on pregnancy. Not yet, at least. But there it was, a grace and a gift from the God who favored her.
She could have said no, but she chose to say yes. And her yes altered everything.
This season I’m remembering how unexpected that first Christmas was for Mary. Long awaited, but still surprising, and how those three words–Let it be–rejected her own ideas for her best life and accepted the gift of God’s plan.
I’m modeling my mind like hers this season: curious, questioning, but ready to give my best yes and receive what God has for me anyway so I can say “Let it be unto me as you say” too.
Today I have the opportunity to share thoughts on how to say yes to the things that matter most in this season on the Legacy Christian Church blog — check it out!
