Jeremiah 29:11 NIV
 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
I wonder how Mary felt during the run up to her baby being born – this miracle baby conceived as a result of Gods intervention. Was it all up to her now or did God have a plan that he would show at the right time? God has a plan to give us a future and a hope just as he had a plan for Mary and for all the “waiters” through advent!
Lord, there must have been tough times for Mary as she waited for your plan to come to fruition and sometimes we can’t see far ahead – help us to see that you have a future and a hope for us today!
