Once Mary said yes to following God’s plan for her life, she immediately got up and went. Mary didn’t just talk about following God’s plan, she acted. It’s so easy to give lip service to our faith. Working on that faith is a different story.

One of the first things the angel Gabriel told Mary was, “Don’t be afraid.” The phrase “Paralyzed by fear” comes to mind. We overcome fear by setting our gaze on God and taking one step forward and another and another.
