Luke 1:28 “The angel went to her and said, ‘Greetings, you who are highly favored: The Lord is with you.’ “

Like Mary, we can look to the Lord for comfort. For like Mary, we too have been facing the fear of the unknown all this year. The only thing Mary could do was to trust in God and be consoled in her faith in Him. For she was alone, bearing the brunt of shame, and isolation…for even if she did try to explain to the gossipers in town…no one would believe her. So Mary took comfort in the only thing she could rely on…the Lord. In Luke 1:46-55 we hear Mary’s song , which starts out, “My soul glorifies the Lord and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior, for He has been mindful of the humble state of His servant.” Today, look to the Lord for comfort, or as it says in Psalm 119:76, “May Your unfailing love be my comfort.”
