Last night after posting a blog feeling oh so positive I received a call to say the water tank had been stolen again. This water tank is an important link in our heating system and without it we cannot heat our halls. It is worthless to the average joe because it was stainless steel and therefore not worth much. To me it is worth an absolute fortune because in early December it is rather cold up here in the high hills of Forth.
It is strange how something so innocuous can be the very thing we can’t live without.
God has a habit of using the unlikeliest of people to provide the link in a series of events. Mary never expected to become the mother of the Messiah. When the angel visited she was cleaning the house, looking forward to her wedding and planning the rest of her life with Joseph.
Luke 1:38 Mary said, I am the servant of the Lord. Let this happen to me as you say! Then the angel went away.
You may be far more important in God’s chain of events than you ever thought possible. As advent continues ponder your link and how might you be the one to hold it altogether.
