Luke 1:46 And Mary said, “My soul magnifies the Lord, 47 and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior, 48 for he has looked with favor on the lowliness of his servant.
I walked out of the nursing home, looked upward and said: “That was great, God! When do we get to do that again?”
Months earlier I had begun visiting a woman whose health was failing. If anyone came to visit, she would pretend to sleep. None-the-less, week after week I came and stood by her bed and prayed silently. Eventually she made eye contact with me and nodded when I asked if she would like me to pray with her. Soon we would chat when I came to visit.
I doubt I was the only person who helped her engage the world, but for having the opportunity to see God work in her and through her my soul rejoiced.
How does your soul magnify the Lord?
