A Mary Heart

“The angel appeared to her and said, ‘Greetings, highly favored one! The Lord is with you!’ “

“ ‘I am the Lord’s servant,’ Mary answered. ‘May your word to me be fulfilled’ ” (Luke 1:28, 38a).

“Mary treasured up all these things, and pondered them deeply in her heart” (Luke 2:19).

I think one of the reasons God chose Mary was because she so beautifully demonstrated someone who keeps her heart innocent, teachable, and trusting enough to embrace life-altering encounters with God, yet so large, determined, and loving as to hold unanswered mysteries within it.

The greatest breakthroughs and blessings aren’t reached through logic or achievement. They lay behind doors which can only be opened by a battle-tested, grace-soaked, wonder-filled hearts unrelentingly declaring, “I am the Lord’s.”
