Talk about inconvenient! I’m almost nine months pregnant, basically due any day, and Joseph and I are now required by the Roman government to go to our ancestral ‘home’ and register for the census. For us, that means at least a three-day journey to Bethlehem.
There is much I do not understand. These days have been difficult, but I know God has a plan and purpose, and I know He is faithful. From the angel’s first visit, I agreed to be the Lord’s servant and I earnestly put my trust in Him.
I pray that this Holy Son of God I’m about to give birth to is One you come to know and worship as well. May you serve Him even when it’s not convenient, trust Him during difficult days, and experience His immeasurable love.
“Think of yourselves the way Christ Jesus thought of himself. He had equal status with God but didn’t think so much of himself that he had to cling to the advantages of that status no matter what. Not at all. When the time came, he set aside the privileges of deity and took on the status of a slave, became human!” ~ Philippians 2:5-7 (The Message)
