Lessons from Mary
"I thought about how she was a “precious and chosen vessel” and what this means. My heart hurt for her. I wanted it to mean that her life would be easy. But that just isn’t the way really—for anyone. You see, a vessel is intentionally made empty inside. To feel empty, alone, vulnerable—to continually turn to God to be filled. A chosen vessel is ‘filled’ to be a carrier of ‘divine substance.’ And it all started making sense—these wonderful lessons from Mary."
