“Then Mary said:  ‘My being proclaims the greatness of the Lord, my spirit finds joy in God my savior, For he has looked upon his servant in her lowliness; all ages to come shall call me blessed.  God who is mighty has done great things for me, holy is his name; His mercy is from age to age on those who fear him.’”  Isaiah 54:4-5

How precious are these words of Mary.  As I experienced God’s love, forgiveness, and joy in the heart of Jesus, my sadness and shame were displaced.  Some of it was gone instantly!  My response was one of wonder and thankfulness.  I desired to praise God with all of my being, and when I once again came upon Mary’s words, I knew they were mine as well.

Jesus is my Savior.  He has looked upon me and healed me in my lowliness and my sinfulness.  I am indeed blessed, as we all are who seek the truth of Who He Is.  God is mighty and He has done great things for me.  I am always amazed by His grace.  Holy is His Name.  His mercy is upon me always.  I am forever His.

My old unhealthy fear of Him as judge has been replaced with a healthy fear of His glory, righteousness, justice and power.  May I, like Mary, journey with God here on earth and become the woman He created me to be.  May I proclaim the greatness of the Lord forever and ever.
