Mary Knew

Mary knew¹ she would birth
     the only begotten Son of God,
But she did not know at first;
     so perplexed in the beginning
Confusion took center stage,
     as questions needed answers.
Her comfort zone was shaken,
     control no longer in her hands.
Despite understanding not
     what the Angel Gabriel said,
Mary leaned deep into what
     ardent faith she had, resolving
To place her servant's heart
     firmly in the hands of her God.
Not until the Angel left her,
     did Mary really know the baby
She now carried, was hers
     to have and hold, for with God
Nothing is impossible.

Luke 1:26-38
