mary.jpgQuestions, questions, questions. Our lives are filled with questions we ask of God. How will I find the right husband or wife? Where should I go to college? Why am I not enjoying life more? How should I serve God? How can I live for God in my job? Will I make it? How long will I be in Singapore? What will happen after Singapore? Am I living within the will of God?

Mary questioned the angel Gabriel concerning the birth of the Son of God. She could not understand that message. So she asked: “How will this be, since I am a virgin?” In other words, God’s plan didn’t fit her scientific knowledge as to the birth of a child. Mary’s preconceived ideas didn’t allow her to accept God’s plan. She didn’t reject it, but she did ask for an explanation. The Angel described the future miracle in these words: “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the holy one to be born will be called the Son of God… For nothing is impossible with God.”

Keep on asking questions of God but don’t forget to listen to God’s words directed toward you. The Holy Spirit is present in our lives because of our faith in Jesus Christ. We can say and believe that nothing is impossible with God. This affirmation will bring God’s miracles into our lives. Are you willing and ready like Mary to say: “May it be to me as you have said.” In this way God’s answers will be worked out in your life. May this happen to all of us as we celebrate Advent.

Luke 1:34-38
