Quote for a Sunday

 "God, in his mercy, does not tell us everything our yes will mean. Most likely, Mary did not understand  everything her yes would mean. She had much to ponder; however, she still gave God permission to work in and through her life as he saw fit. Like Mary, we don't have to know everything our yes will mean; we just have to yield ourselves, trusting God." 

~~ Kimberly Hahn, quoted in Through the Year With Mary: 365 Reflections

Lord, let me say “yes” without counting the cost. 
Then, help me to bear the cost for Your sake.
