Just Believe....!

"And they told him, saying, 'Joseph is still alive, and he is governor over all the land of Egypt.' And Jacob’s heart stood still, because he did not believe them." (Genesis 45:26) Miss Peach, and her mom, asked a good question last week. They wondered how Mary must have felt when she told Joseph she was pregnant, and the look of doubt, disappointment, hurt, pain, and probably feeling potrayed was in his eyes. She must have been devastated, felt all alone, and like he didn't really love and trust her. Just like when Jacob doubted those who said Joseph was still alive, Mary's Joseph doubted her. But, in both cases they were telling the truth. Sometimes it's hard to believe in miaracles and the least likely odds. The world, and our common sense tells us one thing, but God tells us another. He tells us anything is possible, and that He can do ALL things. He tells us just BELIEVE in miracles...and have faith. And then, He gives us the best gift of all...His son, our redeemer, through a virgin birth, no less. So, the next time someone tells you something hard to believe, before you totally count it out (using a little common sense)...just BELIEVE. It might just be a miracle! Love, Beau
