First Wednesday of Advent – Entrusted

Wednesday, December 5, 2018

Luke 1:26-28

“God sent the angel Gabriel to Nazareth, a city in Galilee, to a virgin who was engaged to a man named Joseph, a descendant of David’s house. The virgin’s name was Mary. -Luke 1:26b-27

Entrusted:

• assign the responsibility for doing something to (someone).

• put (something) into someone’s care or protection.

Quote: “There would be no sense in saying you trusted Jesus if you would not take his advice.”

Today’s reading reminded me of one of my favorite hymns from my childhood and I believe it is fitting for today’s word of “entrusted.” I hope you like it and maybe even know it.

This song reminds me of the obedience of Mary and Joseph, it also shows us the trust that God had in them, He entrusted them to raise His Son, Jesus. Jesus, left Heaven to be born and live in Human form to be one of us and to teach us how to live a life pleasing to God! I can’t even begin to imagine how scared and terrified Mary and Joseph were when the Angel came to them. Although they were young and inexperienced, they bravely accepted the plan God had for their lives.

What has God placed upon your heart/entrusted you to do(?). For some of us the answers may be clear, while others are still seeking and waiting, nonetheless we must endure and continually pray for God’s Will to be completed in us.

May this Advent season provide all of us with clear and concise journey for us to fulfill for God’s glory.

Prayer:

Help me to trust in your power. Amen.

Lord Jesus, I have been entrusted with personal knowledge for individuals hurting during this season of Advent from infants to the elderly within my circle of friends. I ask a special blessing for the little boy having surgery today, for loved ones near and far as they are readying for the holidays, may we all be mindful of the greatest gift available to each of us, accepting the Lord, as our personal Savior! Amen, and Amen!

Thanks for following along, I hope you have a terrific day wherever that may be.

A reminder during this holiday season, BE KIND!

~Peace and Blessings~
