Luke 1: 46-55
verses 59-52: His mercy extends to those who fear him, from generation to generation. He has performed mighty deeds with his arm; he has scattered those who are proud in their inmost thoughts. He has brought down rulers from their thrones but has lifted up the humble.
These verses remind me of all of the power of God. God can do anything, and He has done many awesome and wonderful things. Mary was part of the greatest miracle since creation. I can’t comprehend how she even tolerated receiving this miraculous gift.
For some reason, though, this leads me to thinking of little things God has done, for no reason except He loves us. For example, joy. Joy is a precious gift from God. Joy is 100% positive, 100% free of cost, and uses up no energy to experience. This picture is our big girl, Holly. Her sister Stella lives at our place, too. We are constantly smiling at these two. God gives us these healing, positive emotions. He gave them to us for free. He has done many epic and enormous things for His people. His gift of the birth of Jesus tops them all. Joy is a small matter, in the scheme of things. But I am so thankful to God for it. Amen
