Do not be afraid to take Mary as your wife. For the child within her was conceived by the Holy Spirit.” (Matthew‬ ‭1‬:‭20‬ NLT)

For parents, trying to get your children to trust your judgment is a continuous cycle of frustration. We have a standing rule in our house: You have to actually TRY a food before you can say you don’t like it. I, personally, detest green bean casserole, but I have also tried it. But when my kids were little and extremely squeamish, anything not resembling a french fry or chicken nugget was horrible! What we knew, and they didn’t, was that if they would simply TRY it, they might actually like it.

Joseph was having to trust God when his fiancée turned up pregnant. Yea, that was a new one for the history books. There’s much about what God does that doesn’t make sense to us, and that’s okay. We also can’t see the outcomes of where those decisions lie. By trusting God when things don’t make sense, we are admitting that God knows better and isn’t trying to destroy our life.

If God leads you to a place like this, don’t panic! Everything He does is ALWAYS wrapped around a brilliant plan. Like Joseph, trust that it will make sense eventually. If God isn’t panicking, then neither should we! You are loved today!
