Episode 85 – I Surrender

 In Podcast

In our own way, we are each chosen to do what we are called to do. Using the Christmas story as allegory, we share in this episode what happens for us when we receive a “You are highly favored” call from Spirit. Like Mary in the story, the choice to surrender our personal will to Divine Will is the choice to be active as our Divine/Higher Self. From this place, we live a purposeful life, acting on inner guidance, and authentically expressing who we have come here to be. We each hold the potential to bring into manifestation a new Light for all people.


The Christmas story is not what you think

Matthew tells of Joseph, the wise men and Herod’s decree to kill all male children

Luke tells of Mary, the census, the birth in a manger and the shepherds

They are two different stories

We can interpret it literally, historically, allegorically or metaphysically

Mary’s opening story

“The angel went to her and said, ‘Greetings, you who are highly favored! The Lord is with you.’”  Luke 1:28

“The angel said to her, ‘Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God.” Luke 1:30

“For nothing will be impossible with God.” Luke 1:37

Being Chosen:

We too are chosen to create something in this world and bring new Light for all people

We have the choice to surrender our personal will to Divine Will, or not

Sometimes these “You are highly favored” calls come in small ways

Other times they can seem monumental

We can have many reactions:

Deflection: “Who me?” “Why me?” “Please not me.”

Avoidance: “I didn’t hear that!”

Overwhelmed: “That’s too hard.”


“Then Mary said, ‘Here am I, the servant of the Lord; let it be with me according to your word.’” Luke 1:38

When we surrender to Divine Will within we are choosing to be active as our Divine/Higher Self

We open our hearts to receive miracles and guidance

We realize and express our purpose

We trust knowing good outcomes

NOTE: During the dialogue I recommend a movie called The Nativity Story. Here is a link to it: https://www.amazon.com/Nativity-Story-Keisha-Castle-Hughes/dp/B00BX4PC64

Dialogue and Inquiry

What is your first response to the idea of being favored or chosen?

Share a time when you surrendered your personal will to Divine Will (let it be done according to your word). How did it all go down?

What is Spirit calling you to do or be that will be a blessing for all people?

What does Surrender mean to you?

What does Mary represent to you? What else does this part of the story mean to you?

Closing Thought

I have a Divine purpose and am here to bring into the world the Spirit of God. With Love and Faith, I accept what is mine to do and be. I align my will with Divine Will, listen, and act on my guidance. As I joyfully bring a blessing to the world, I too am blessed.

Deepen your spiritual life. Each week’s dialogue topic is communicated in our newsletter.
