Advent Series: Only one Mother

Feast Of Our Lady Of Guadalupe

‘Blessed is she who believed that there would be a fulfillment of what was spoken to her by the Lord’ – Luke 1:45

Sometimes we pray about a situation in our life but when we don’t receive any answers from God we get dejected and tend to lose faith.

Mary faced a situation where it seemed completely impossible that the promise made to her about conceiving Jesus could come true. But yet she continued to trust in God.

How often do we get disappointed and lose faith because our prayers aren’t answered quickly?

“God is not slow about keeping his promises as some understand slowness” – 2 Pet 3:9

His timing is perfect. Everything happens exactly when it is supposed to happen and not a minute sooner or a minute later.

“So let us continue to trust in the Lord with all our heart and not lean on our own understanding. Let us acknowledge Him in all our ways and He will make straight our paths” – Proverbs 3:5-6

Wishing you a very Happy Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe.
