A Pure Heart

December 13, 2010 Donna New


“And she gave birth to her Son, her Firstborn; and she wrapped him in swaddling clothes and laid Him in a manger, because there was no room or place for them in the inn.” (Luke 2:7) Mary was placed in a situation that was much less than perfect. It was uncomfortable, dirty and probably cold and damp…not a place for a baby. Yet she quietly made do with what she had to work with. She took what she had been dealt and made the best of it. She worked out making a place for her Boy.

I want to learn to be resourceful and turn the less than perfect life I’ve been given, just like all of us, and make it a welcome place for God’s Son. I want it to be a ministry and a shining light. I want to quietly, peacefully take my situation and allow God to make it what He would have it.

I want a pure heart like Mary’s with no complaint; she just did what was best for her Newborn. She just seems so calm and gentle.

Lord, I pray for peace to deal with my life. I thank you for speaking to me through Mary. Help me have a pure heart with no complaints, only trust. Thank You. In the precious Name of Jesus. Amen.

    “I want a pure heart like Mary’s with no complaint…”
    Amen. I second that.
