How many times a day do we have the opportunity to say “yes” to God, but rather we say “no”? It is in these moments when I remember how Mary reacted, and what her answer was. I know some times it is much easier to reject what God has planned, and to choose a different path. The thing to remember is that even though His path may be hard now, as is was for Mary, the end reward for our decisions will be greater than we could ever dream. Who knows what great things I might miss if I say “no” to what the Lord has in store for me.
Today, make a little extra effort to listen to the Lord, and to say “yes” to what he has planned for you.
