This Christmas season, I am continually reminded how God's timing is not our own. This morning at church, on the first Sunday of advent, we studied how Mary's "yes to God" came at a great cost. Even though Luke 1:30-31 records Mary as finding favor with God, her YES to God, cost her her earthly reputation and some really hard conversations, as well as 30 years of waiting to understand God's promise and purpose to her virgin conception and birth.
I don't know about you, but when I'm in the midst of hard times, it can seem like God has forgotten about me and left me in the depths. It's only in the revelation, that we see God's purpose and timing come to life. This season, as we say Yes to God, remember that it will be worth it, it will change your life and the world!
