~Can you EVEN Begin To Imagine How Mary Felt?~

In the sixth month, God sent the angel Gabriel to Nazareth, a town in Galilee, to a virgin pledged to be married to a man named Joseph, a descendant of David. The virgin's name was Mary. The angel went to her and said, 'Greetings, you who are highly favored! The Lord is with you.' Mary was greatly troubled at his words and wondered what kind of greeting this might be. But the angel said to her, 'Do not be afraid, Mary, you have found favor with God. You will be with child and give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus. He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David, and he will reign over the house of Jacob forever; his kingdom will never end.' Luke 1:26-33 NIV

Hey Cheryl,
I've been sitting here "imagining" what she must have thought after reading your post.
I LOVED HER WORDS: MY SOUL DOTH MAGNIFY THE LORD.....
Mary was human... did she worry? I woulda worried like CRAZY. I worry so much what others think sometimes and I WONDER IF MARY DID TOO.
OR DID SHE FIND THAT PLACE INSIDE HER WHERE ALL SHE DID WAS TRUST COMPLETELY.

It's beautiful but so difficult to try and ponder her perspective upon hearing these words... especially at such a young age.

No I can't imagine what it was like for Mary. Especially back in those days with all the hardships.
