So my mind was blown this morning in devotions.
God chose Mary TO SUFFER. She was considered most blessed, got to carry Jesus but the end result was her losing him in one of the hardest ways imaginable. Watching this child, whom she carried and loved and nurtured be tormented and put to death.
She is blessed, yes. But blessed because of enduring one of the hardest paths in history.
That certainly makes me feel less like God is “punishing me” in the hard times. I hope it blesses you, too!
Merry Christmas, friends!
