The Christmas Story: Day 3

“But I don’t understand,” Mary said. “I’m not even married yet…” Her head  was buzzing with questions.

“This is something God will do. Nothing is too hard for Him.”

When Mary heard this, she knew that she could trust God to do whatever He said. She did not have to understand it all.

“I will do whatever God wants,” she said.
