How many times have you heard someone say, “A baby changes your whole life”?

I’ve certainly heard it said many times, but how do you think that makes the parents to be feel? Terrified? Thrilled? Anxious? Excited?

Well imagine how Mary felt when God told her she was going to have a baby, and not just any baby, the Son of God!

I’m sure she was terrified but I’m also sure she felt very humble that God had chosen her out of all the hundreds and thousands of people on earth, He chose her to Jesus’ Mum. Wow!

What a huge responsibility Mary had placed on her, especially as Mary would have known that the child she was going to give birth to would have a huge impact on this world, an impact that we’d still be talking about and celebrating thousands of years later.

What a difference one small child made in this world!

Today I challenge you to consider the impact you’ve made on this world.

A Baby Changes Everything by Faith Hill
 
Teenage girl, much too young
Unprepared for what’s to come
A baby changes everything
 
Not a ring on her hand
All her dreams and all her plans
A baby changes everything
A baby changes everything
 
The man she loves she’s never touched
How will she keep his trust?
A baby changes everything
A baby changes everything
 
And she cries!
Ooh, she cries
Ooh, oh
 
She has to leave, go far away
Heaven knows she can’t stay
A baby changes everything
 
She can feel it’s coming soon
There’s no place, there’s no room
A baby changes everything
A baby changes everything
 
And she cries!
And she cries!
Oh, she cries
 
Shepherds all gather ’round
Up above the star shines down
A baby changes everything
 
Choir of angels sing
Glory to the newborn King
A baby changes everything
A baby changes everything
 
Everything, everything, everything
 
Hallelujah
 
My whole life has turned around
I was lost but now I’m found
A baby changes everything, yeah
A baby changes everything
