Your “YES”

I am always struck by the Gospel story we hear today(Luke 1.39-45), especially the line; “Blessed is she who believed that there would be a fulfillment of what was spoken to her by the Lord.” And Elizabeth’s reception of Mary, and Christ in her womb, is such a beautiful image for us to ponder and imitate.

In truth, it was Mary’s “Yes” to God working through her that brought Him forth into our very midst.

Mary’s life, and more specifically her response to God, is such an example and a witness to us. How do we respond to God’s promises in our lives? How do we respond when he seeks to work through us? How do we respond when we see Him working through others for us?

For a few moments today I thought it would be good for us to dwell in Mary’s Spirit, in her thoughts, in her witness.

I am going to play a song and a little reflection. The song is based on Mary’s response, in Scripture, to God inviting her to share in His plan. And I would encourage you, as you listen, to place yourself in the presence of the Lord with the words of Paul’s letter on your heart, “I have come to do your will, O God.”
