What did I do to deserve this?
I am just a plain Hebrew girl.
I've lived a life so ordinary.
What does God see in me?
Me??? The one who will carry the Messiah?
Oh, my Father in Heaven how will I be worthy?
How can I raise the Son of God?
Is it really true?
What will my parents think?
How will they bear the shame?
Oh, help them to believe me Father.
Help them to understand.
How will I tell Joseph?
Will he put me away?
Will he still want to marry me?
Please Father help him to know the truth.
I am so unworthy Father.
I thank you for choosing me.
I will always do your will.
I will listen for your voice telling me what to do.
Already I feel so much love for this child.
I cannot wait to behold the face of my son, my saviour.
I do not know what the future holds for this child
But Father I will trust you with his life.
Once again I thank you for this privilege you have given me
I pray I will live worthy of the honor.
I pray I will be the mother you would want me to be,
to this child and any other in the future I may have.
Your Humble Servant,
