In her glory she proclaims the greatness of the Lord and finds joy in God her savior. God has done marvels to her and she leads others to recognize God’s holiness. She is the lowly handmaid who deeply reverenced her God and has been raised to the heights. From her position of strength she will help the lowly and the poor find justice on earth, and she will challenge the rich and powerful to distrust wealth and power as a source of happiness.
“When I stand before God at
the end of my life,
I would hope that I would not
have a single bit of talent left,
and could say,
I used everything you gave me.”
I’m not afraid to fail…
…I’m scared to death of dying and
having the Lord say to me:
Angelica, this is what you might have done had you trusted more.
Do not let your hearts be troubled.
Believe in God, believe also in me.
In my Father’s house there are many dwelling places.
If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you?
And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself,
so that where I am, there you may be also. (John 14:1-3)
In peace I will lie down and fall asleep, for you alone, LORD, make me secure. – Psalm 4:8
Sleep. Woman sleeping in bed having beauty sleep in pajamas. Beautiful cute girl in her twenties. Asian Caucasian female model in full body lying down.
If you fell down yesterday, stand up today. (H.G. Wells)
