MARY’S JOURNEY – by Kathy Boecher©

As time went on, Jesus miracles became even more amazing than the one at Cana.  Now He was healing those with terminal illnesses, disabilities and even removing demons from those who had carried them for years.  No one had seen anything like this before. Word quickly spread across the countryside about this “miracle man.

To Mary, He remained her Son.  Sons are a gift from God to a mother.  They’re usually a reflection of their dads and Jesus was not an exception.  He followed the profession of His carpenter step dad, Joseph. in those years of growing up, but now it was time to exhibit the attributes of His Holy Father in heaven.

Mary had heard the stories of the exile out of Egypt and God’s miraculous deeds as they traveled across the desert.  Certainly, as families gathered at the end of a day, those stories would come alive again.  There were the miracles performed by the prophets, Elijah as he raised the widow’s son from the dead; Daniel in the lions den; Jonah in the belly of the whale; and the Walls of Jericho falling at the command of God.  She pondered over her own miraculous pregnancy and the angel that told her what would come to be.  Each of those special memories she had tucked away were now coming to fruition.  This surely was the Son of God.

Her faith was with her from the beginning.  She simply accepted God’s will for her and for this child of hers.  Listening to her boy speak in kind, tender words – lifting their spirits as well as renewing their health.  His parables were also more than effective.  Speaking to those who tilled the land, he would talk on their terms and yet His knowledge of the Scriptures was far superior to those who had spent a lifetime studying them.  Jesus was the Word.

Every day news spread about the deeds of Jesus.  Israel had long awaited the coming of the Messiah.  The prophesies were now coming to pass.  As the events unfolded before His mother’s eyes, her confidence in God’s covenant was growing stronger, but this was just the beginning.


About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.
