Janet Parshall on Mary

And still more random thoughts from True Woman 2010, Indy:

Think about the questions Mary doesn't ask!

She is submissive, humble, obedient.
No argument, no complaint, no hesitation.
She calls herself the Lord's handmaiden - the lowest of servents, who sits watches for a hand signal from her mistress.

Zechariah says, "But God?!" and is silenced.
Do I let circumstances define me, or God?

Mary rushes to tell Elisabeth.
Mary does not ask, "What are the consequences?"
She says, "This is truth."

God has the right to interupt my life.

"Struggle is a word for delayed obedience." Elizabeth Elliot
