Thinking about Mary, the mother of Jesus. How in the world did she survive such trials? How did she stand back? How did she remain obedient? How didn’t she rebuke our Heavenly Father? How did she control herself? How in the world did she watch it happen to her precious Son without becoming consumed by hatred?
It had to be pure faith and selflessness. An ounce of doubt or selfishness- she surely would have been gauging the eyes of the men crucifying our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
I’m thankful for her example, because as my daughter lays here fevering, I am pleading with God to make it stop. Something so normal- a fever- and I crumble. How did Mary do it?
