As she was walking down the streets,she could hear the whisperings and little chattering of gossips directed towards her.” “How can it be that she becomes the favoured one?”A poor and common little lady from the lowest parts of the city?” “It’s impossible,I’m very sure she’s just trying to hide behind the sin of her abominable act”.These and more are the questions that are being asked and statements that are amongst the people.She suddenly became the center of attention wherever she goes,her family members suggested she relocated from the small village to a new place where her identity isn’t known.
BUT Mary was undaunted,she was so sure of God’s promises and refused to move an inch when God hasn’t given the Go ahead.And her husband,Oh how he loved her,he didn’t ditch and ran away like most men will do,he stood by her and was also convinced of God’s purpose and plan for them..
I guess you already have an hint of the above story,it’s an abstract from the story of Mary and Joseph and It got me thinking about the Life of Mary,she was truly unafraid.The Birth of the Messiah was expected to be from a Strong, influential, powerful and Wealthy woman but it came from unexpected Simple Mary that was Virtuous, Compassionate, Loving and Submissive.This goes a long way to show us the impartially of our God and our equality before him,he uses the simplest of ways to bring out his perfection and accomplish his purpose.
And Joseph,oh poor Joseph he was simply a carpenter who just wanted to get married and live his life with his family but he was honoured to be the father.Im sure if we were to be in those days we would think it Stupid that the Messiah should come from a Carpenter and a Simple baffles Me and I’m sure it baffles you too!…
Everyone is created for a Purpose irrespective of your position or status quo here on Earth. Always Remember that even the simplest of things are created for something special.
How much more YOU! You are on Earth for a Purpose,find it and live it!
