What was it like to be Mary?

You’re 12 or 13 years old, you’re getting ready to be married, you’re excited and nervous at the same time. But then an angel appears to you; he tells you that you’re going to get pregnant by the power of the Holy Spirit, and have a son who will become the King of the world.

How would you feel?
Freaked out?

But look at how Mary receives this news in Luke 1:26-38 (http://bit.ly/2Qoj1P0).
She is an amazing example of faith. She knows she’s going to have to explain how a virgin can have a baby and that everyone’s going to gossip about her behind her back. She trusts God anyway.

How I wish I had faith even a little bit like Mary.
Ask God to help you believe in Him like Mary did, even if people laugh at you and hate you for it.
