Every year, I have fun picking out one new Christmas album. This year my choice was Brandon Heath’s “Christmas is Here.” Featuring a fun mix of both traditional and new songs, this is one worth owning. His song, “Just a Girl” definitely presents a unique perspective.
I am certain that Mary, the mother of Jesus, did not always feel like she was taken seriously. As a young woman, barely more than a girl, in a patriarchal society, her voice may not have seemed to matter. Especially once she became an expectant unwed mother. Yet she was willing for God to work out His will in her life, no matter what the personal cost.
Are we willing to do the same? If we say that we want to follow God’s will, do we put limits on that? This song is definitely an inspiring reminder that living out God’s plans in definitely worth the sacrifices.
