“His mother Mary was pledged to be married to Joseph, but before they came together, she was found to be pregnant through the Holy Spirit.” Matthew 1:18
God so often does things ‘out of order.’ Babies are supposed to come after marriage, conceived by a husband and wife. Yes, in the ordinary way of humans, this is God’s design. But God isn’t bound by human limitations like time, borders, or biology. We are surprised by God’s methods because we intuitively take the laws of nature and man into account. This year, perhaps more than usual, we long for a miracle–to make order from chaos. Perhaps we are beginning to understand that when God moves things ‘out of order,’ that what we are seeing is really Him putting things in proper alignment.
God, please give us the grace to trust that the turmoil we’re experiencing will serve to realign our hearts and lives around You–and help us to cooperate with these plans! In Jesus’ name, Amen.
