We'd like to think hearing God would make us feel comfortable. Sometimes, though, it leaves us feeling confused and disturbed. In the Christmas story, this is exactly how Mary feels. On the other hand, like Mary's cousin Elizabeth we may feel empty, barren and left behind. In Luke 1, we hear how God keeps his promise to a broken world by sending Jesus! Also, we gain insight into how God desires to work in our lives today! He has great plans for you even if they are very different that what you may have imagined for yourself!
