Can't get this out of my head...

This is currently "percolating" for a couple future entries. But, I can't get away from this...even thinking about it in those few seconds of wakefulness as I roll over in bed at night.

Luke 1.38, 46-55
Mary's response to the angel and the Magnificat/Mary's Song

38 Then Mary said, "Behold the maidservant of the Lord! Let it be to me according to your word."
46 And Mary said: "My soul magnifies the Lord, 47 And my spirit has rejoiced in God my Savior. 48 For He has regarded the lowly state of His maidservant; For behold, henceforth all generations will call me blessed. 49 For He who is mighty has done great things for me, And holy [is] His name. 50 And His mercy [is] on those who fear Him From generation to generation. 51 He has shown strength with His arm; He has scattered [the] proud in the imagination of their hearts. 52 He has put down the mighty from [their] thrones, And exalted [the] lowly. 53 He has filled [the] hungry with good things, And [the] rich He has sent away empty. 54 He has helped His servant Israel, In remembrance of [His] mercy, 55 As He spoke to our fathers, To Abraham and to his seed forever."

God, please work this through me, reveal the message for me so I will be able to express just what needs to be said at just the Right time, Your time!

Powerful scripture. I have thought of what would truly happen in our lives if we could surrender to the will of God as Mary:

38.Let it be to me according to your word.

I don't want anything to keep me out of the will of the Lord. There is no place like being in His will. NO PLACE.

interesting. y'know that Kari at https://healedwaters.wordpress.com has been writing about prayer and what struck me was the thing about praying God's will. Sort of praying about what to pray about.

Mary's spirit rejoiced in God, her Savior. Me, I'd be terrified. The Lord knew what He was doing when He chose Mary. I'm afraid I mighta been saying, "Bless somebody else, PLEASE!"
