Today’s song talks about the Mother of Jesus. If you’ve never heard this tune before, Josh Groban has a great version you should check out.
The song is basically a game of 20 questions. “Mary, did you know your son would walk on water?” “Mary, did you know your son would turn water into wine?” “Mary, did you know your baby boy would be called the King of the Jews?” It is just one question after another.
I don’t know if Mary knew these things would happen or not, but I know she gives us a great example to strive for.
The truth is none of us know how life is going to turn out. We don’t know what’s in store for us in the next hour let alone 20 years from now. But just because we don’t know the details of the future doesn’t mean we can’t plan accordingly.
We may not know the details of the future, but we do know the impact of the present. By making the decision to pursue fitness, we put ourselves in a position to enjoy a long life.
Adding exercise of mind, body and spirit to our daily routine keeps us healthy, strong and wise.
But even if we could lead a perfect life, we still won’t know what tomorrow will bring. This is where faith comes in. We must believe that if we do the right things, good things will happen.
We must have faith that taking care of ourselves allows us to better serve others. We must have no doubt that lives, families, and communities can change for the better.
Mary is a tremendous example of faith. She didn’t know all the details about the future but she lived like she did. What about you?
Have a great day!
