Handmaid of the Lord

"I am the handmaid of the Lord, let be it done to me according to your word" Luke1:38

I have always been fascinated by that verse. Amazed at how Mary could fully consent and trust in the Lord! And when I read that verse or hear it or see the CFC Handmaids of the Lord stickers on cars I would reflect on her deep faith and pray that I could be the same too.

Although I consider myself a prayerful person, there are times I find myself praying yet at the back of my mind I would be thinking on how I would solve my problems... and oh, I could be stubborn and persistent especially if I think that what I am doing is right! And there are times when my mind says "I believe You, Lord or I trust You, Lord" yet my heart feels otherwise... I feel burdened and it shouldn't be so!

Oh, I am not really being hard on myself. I know that the Lord always look through my intentions... and though my faith is not perfect, I know that He loves me and will always love me! I am happy though that I have finally finished Couples For Christ's Handmaids of the Lord Christian Life Program. I am also happy that the HOLD community has welcomed me... and truth is I like to be called a handmaid of the Lord! Now if I could just ALWAYS reply to God "Let it be done to me according to Your word"... then that would be a real blessing. I know that it could be difficult... but then again.. with God nothing is impossible!

I luv u Lord!
