August 15 – Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary
Mary was always busy doing the work of God. She was vigilant, ready to answer the call when it came. Even though she was scared, and unsure of her worthiness, she said, “Yes.” At 14 or 15 years of age, this humble servant said, “Yes” to being the Mother of God.
Mary lived a life free from sin and completely focused on carrying out God’s plan, which earned her the honor of assumption, body and soul, into heaven. We pay tribute to her today for her readiness, for being busy doing the work of God.
Where are you in your readiness? Are you alert and ready to accept the work God calls you to do? Or are you just rolling the dice, hoping that God doesn’t come for awhile?
My challenge to you is to not only look busy but be busy doing the work of God. You never know when He will reveal His plan for you.
