Just A Thought Words Of Encouragement By Lynne Conley / a couple of years ago Share Tweet Pin Share Our Hearts Desire When the angel Gabriel first appeared to Mary, he didn’t explain the plan of God for her life.’’ And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favored, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women” ( Luke 1:28 KJV) The definition for favored is: Endowed with special gifts, talents, or advantages. (American Heritage) Mary was very fearful and troubled; she waited for the angel Gabriel to explain more to her. Mary had been chosen to give birth to Jesus. Mary questioned the angel, ” Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man?” (Luke 1:34 KJV) Mary accepted the assignment and she was truly honored by God to be Jesus’ mother. In the Bible, it says many are called but few are chosen. God wants all to serve him. As Mary was chosen by God to play a special role in life so are we called to fulfill our role in life. Let’s open our hearts and be obedient to His will. ”And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose”(Romans 8:28 KJV) All we do for the Lord will matter; we all have to make it our hearts desire to reach all we can while we are here. Stay Encouraged, I am so blessed to have you all as my friends. I am here to lend a helping hand to each and every one of you all.
