A couple thousand years ago, an innocent Jewish girl had expectations for her future—just like all her friends.
She’d met a nice guy, an honorable Jewish man who had plans. In fact, those plans were set in motion. Promises were made. Today we call it getting engaged.
Then God interrupted.
It wasn’t what the girl expected. Not what the guy planned. Things did not go well for them.
(The movie The Nativity Story does a great job of showing
just how well things did not go. View a clip here.)
God does that—interrupts our plans, our expectations.
Just like He interrupted the darkness and called it Light.
Evidently, this historic couple trusted Him enough to take him at his word.
What a concept.
What if we let God interrupt our lives in the New Year?
