Through the Eyes of Mary Part #4

istock_000006782942xsmall2Even in our most unfamiliar times and places God is present. So if you are in an unfamiliar place or having to deal with some unfamiliar experiences take a breath and remember that God is with you during those moments. Take heart that God sees the bigger picture just as He did on this special day in the life of Mary. God would have His son to be born in a messy place because His plan was for Him to save a messy world.

When you step back just a little, where else would a shepherd be born? God sent His son the Great Shepherd for His sheep. He would sleep where his sheep slept, eat where they ate, and live where they lived.  The shepherd had come to care for His sheep. The book of John tells us that the Word became flesh and blood and moved into our neighborhood. Nothing else would ever be the same. Not only that but the manger also sends the message that Jesus is accessible to everyone. That he came for the sick and the poor, the hurting and the needy. He came for me. He came to get messy. He came to serve and he would never have a place to lay His head. So where else but a manger. So if things are not going according to your plan, remember our plans our flawed and His plans are perfect.

When I make God the center of my life I can’t help but worship.
