“Love God and [then] do what you will.” – Saint Augustine
When you truly love God and his will, then doing what you will, will be doing what God wills.
Love for Him must outweigh all other loves. Your love for Him, must be the “Cornerstone” of your entire life. Be willing then, to allow Him, to love you back.
Luke 1:38 And Mary said, “Behold, I am the handmaid of the Lord; let it be to me according to your word.”
When Mama Mary said yes to God, her will became Gods will. To think for a second, that she could forget what the Angle Gabriel had told her, “And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus.” is like her forgetting she was a woman. Her trust in and love for God was so great, that this event became her life. At the very second she said yes, her will then became God’s will. She held everything from that moment on, in her heart, and even the closeness and unconditional love she had for her Son, our Lord, could not match the love she had for God the Father. Every moment after the Annunciation, in her life, became retrospect back to the moment of saying yes to God.
