A lonely teenage mother, with only her young husband at her side, gives birth in the open air after traveling 90 miles on foot. Mary was blessed by God with the incredible task of raising the Savior of the World.
Each of us has the opportunity to raise a world changer. Every child is capable of great things. Our children have the power of the Holy Spirit and can move mountains with a single prayer. When I think of this sweet babe born in Bethlehem, I think of the great promises He fulfilled and how many precious promises does He want to fulfill in your life? Your children’s lives? Oh the possibilities are fathomless.
This Christmas, may you grasp the love of an incredibly giving Heavenly Father who gave His beloved child for you. This extravagant gift bought your salvation, granted you complete amnesty from every sin, and brings peace to the depths of your soul as you reside in His grace.
And may you know that, like Mary, you never walk this parenting journey alone.
