How did Elizabeth know – how did she recognize – the divinity of Mary’s child?
“She was filled with the Holy Spirit.” What was that like for Elizabeth – to see truths she had not seen before? What did that feel like? I can’t help but think of those people who I have met who just radiate goodness and blessedness. They have said YES to a way of life that is so intentional, so clear – even when it “bucks the system”. Just like Elizabeth’s child “jumping for joy”, my spirit has jumped for joy in response to these people. I know for certainty that I am around someone special, someone who has uncategorically said yes to God. But why can’t I be Mary? Isn’t the divine living and growing in me? Can I say yes too? Can I also wholeheartedly believe what God wants for me?
