In Response to Christ…

Elizabeth, under the power of the Holy Spirit, says:

Blessed is she who believed, for there will be a fulfillment of those things which were told her from the Lord.”

Mary responds:

My soul magnifies the Lord

 And my spirit has rejoiced in God my Savior

For He has regarded the lowly state of His maidservant;

For behold, henceforth all generations will call me blessed. 

For He who is mighty has done great things for me,

And holy is His name

And His mercy is on those who fear Him From generation to generation

He has shown strength with His arm;

He has scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts. 

He has put down the mighty from their thrones,

And exalted the lowly

He has filled the hungry with good things,

And the rich He has sent away empty. 

 He has helped His servant Israel, In remembrance of His mercy,

As He spoke to our fathers,

To Abraham and to his seed forever.”

Lord, let my response to Your truth always exalt You and You alone. Like Mary, let me be humble in heart, saying, “May it be done to me as You have said.” No matter how I feel about Your plans, in spite of how life looks, let me submit my person to You. You alone are worthy to be praised. Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who in His mercy has given us great life!

Merry CHRISTmas!
