I often think about Mary, the mother of Jesus, and the ability she had to ponder sacred things in her heart. She was humble and teachable, and willing to be all that our Father in Heaven needed her to be. She was living a life already pure and good. She was prepared to do what the angel Gabriel asked her to do and prophesied to her. Her faith did not start with the visit of the angel. She was already filled with faith, and accepted her Father's will not really knowing all that would come from being the mother of the Savior of the world. Truly, I cannot imagine the life she must have lead.
I hope in your life there is room for faith. I am certain that all of your problems are not solved when you want them to be. I know that there are many unknowns in all of our lives. This can be very trying at times. There is purpose in this. There is a reason for us to take things one step at a time, and keep moving. Jesus will always be the answer in our lives. He will always be the reason for the miracles we experience and the light that fills us with the peace we long for.
I invite you to watch this video, and ponder on the faith of the mother of Jesus. How can we fill our lives with such faith in the Savior? The Holy Bible and the Book of Mormon hold the answers to these questions and the fullness of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Ponder His miracles in the scriptures and in your own life. He loves you. He will never forsake those who "come unto Him."
