“And Mary said: My soul does magnify the Lord, And my spirit has rejoiced in God my Savior.” Luke 1:46-47 NKJV
I have to say I saw a question mark after that first phrase. I asked myself, Does my soul magnify the Lord? I wonder if Mary answered so quickly. Maybe she felt like I do. My soul doth gripe and complain. My soul wants what I want. MY soul wants to stop the problems and have some peace and have my family.
Perhaps Mary had to make the claim by saying it before it was. Maybe it was a determined effort–My mouth willth magnify until my soul doth magnify. At least I’m not pregrant trying to explain it to my parents and the world. What an amazing person she must be. I pray to learn her submission to praising and worshiping. I yearn to follow her path to submission. There peace waits to bless us all.
