What does it take for you to throw a full-blown hissy fit – like an all out, frothing at the mouth temper tantrum?
Oops, sorry! Forgot that you were all grown up, and WAY beyond such things.
But just suppose for the moment you’d be tempted, just tempted to throw one – what would really push your buttons to get good and mad at God?
If he sent his angel messenger to cause chaos in your life, what might be the thing that would put you over the top?
Like make you want to run away from the Lord, slamming the door on the way out…..
So, the Advent journey continues at Kemptville CRC, wondering at a young woman who faced what I think would be pretty good grounds for having such a reaction. Only she doesn’t. She struggles – yes, she does. But ends up in a very accepting posture. Total surrender to the will of God as it has a huge impact on her life.
We’re watching Mary receive the news that she’s going to be the mother of God’s Son.
Leading us to wonder about surrender – how we get there, and what it means for our lives today.
