"I am the Lord’s servant,” Mary answered. “May your word to me be fulfilled."
Luke 1:38


When we were little, we were taught to share. “Let your brother borrow your toy while you play with another one,” or “let her have a turn.” But it was never that easy. At least not in the beginning. You see, this feeling is similar when we’re faced with giving the Lord our most valuable possession: ourselves. God created us so we could give ourselves back to Him, but He made it a choice because He wants us to desire Him like He does us. So are we sacrificing our will for His? Think about the last time it was difficult to do God’s will in our life, but did it anyway. Does it happen often? Give yourself to Him, so that He may give back to you. Share with Him, so He may share with you.


Father, grant me the grace to give myself to You in full. Help me remember I do not belong to myself and that Your plan for me is infinitely better than anything I may have planned. Amen.
