“The Almighty has done great things for me” (Lk. 1:49). If ever we need a “vaccine” to lift our drooping spirits, all we have to do is sit down, and make a list of all the wonderful and happy blessings God has poured into our lives. Mary could radiate joy, even as her dreams and plans for her life were disrupted, because of the blessing of being the mother of Jesus.
The more we list our blessings, the more our souls will “proclaim the greatness of the Lord” and our spirits rejoice in God our Saviour.
Loving Father, we thank and praise You for the countless blessings You pour into our lives. May we never take them for granted, nor fail to rejoice in Your saving power. Amen.
