A Life of Faith instead of Sight: Mary

You told her she would have a king,

You sent an angel to inform her,

He declared the impossible birth, creating wonder.

An inspired Elizabeth gave witness to the miracle,

That You told her she would have a king.

You told her she would have a king:

And Joseph she almost lost,

Death at the worst, shame and pain at the best,

These became her future,

You told her she would have a king.

She holds you , her son, in her arms,

She studies your face,

But her faith is not sight,

She still lives by grace.

No castle, no gold, no glittering fabric,

No maids, no servants, no friends,

Just a barn on a dark night ,

You told her she would have a king…

But no king is seen…Where is her promised one?

She holds you, her son, in her arms,

She studies your face,

But her faith is not sight,

She still lives by grace.

You told her she would have a king,

And your mercy shown in the night,

Your mighty messengers came,

With a declaration of peace from the heavenly fight.

The shepherds came and told her she had a king!

And Mary treasured up these things,

Her faith made strong by grace,

She believed what she could not see,

That she had a king.

As her son, held so close in her arms,

Dies before her very eyes,

Mary holds to what she cannot see:

She has a risen King!

Mary:  a beautiful example of living life by faith and not by sight.

Inspired by Pastor Steve Garrick and Jarrett Downs during Ladies Bible Study.

“And Lord, haste the day when my faith shall be sight, The clouds be rolled back as a scroll; The trump shall resound, and the Lord shall descend, Even so, it is well with my soul.”
