Heart Song

| | Comments (1)

Today's reading: Luke 1:39-56

Mary believed what was told to her by the angel Gabriel. And not only did she believe, she rejoiced in the favor God was showing her.

So when young Mary goes to visit her aunt, Elizabeth (who was pregnant with a baby boy who would grow up to be John the Baptist), Mary recognizes Elizabeth's excitement about the child Mary was carrying (Jesus) and the important role Mary was carrying out, and Mary responds with a song of praise. Mary's song or "Magnificat" is Mary's way of putting into words the joy in her heart for what God had done, was doing and would ultimately do through Jesus who was coming as the Savior of the world.

The very first phrase of this song spoke loudly to me today, lifting my spirits and encouraging me to be intentional about highlighting God to others.

"My soul magnifies the Lord, and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior..."(vs. 46-47).

How did Mary's song of praise impact you today? How have you "magnified" (highlighted, amplified, augmented) Jesus and His coming to earth in the past couple of weeks? What's your song of praise going to look and sound like from now until Christmas? Tami

The very first stood out to me, Tami!

" Mary arose and went with haste".

Mary was not only full of praise she was excited and exuberant about the news that she was the one who God had chosen to bring the promised Messiah to the world.

After reading this passage, it makes me want to memorize and see if I can be a little like Mary's excitement and joy!
