Oh Highly Favored One

The Christmas Story

God, I don’t understand why You chose me for such a big task. I don’t feel equipped for this.

You are My highly favored one.

God, people are spreading horrible lies about me being unfaithful. They’re calling me a slut. I’m afraid they’re going to stone me!

You are My highly favored one.

God, Joseph is going to leave me. My heart is broken.

You are My highly favored one.

God, no one in town speaks to me. They only spit at my feet. I don’t have any friends anymore. I feel so alone.

You are My highly favored one.

God, I’ve been riding on this donkey all day and I just want to cry because I’m so uncomfortable and stressed. I can’t imagine doing this again for 3 more days.

You are My highly favored one.

God, we finally got to Bethlehem, but there’s no place for us to stay. We don’t know anyone here; we have no one to turn to. The only place for us to sleep is in a stable. I’m so sensitive to strong smells because of the baby; I’m probably going to spend the whole night being sick.

You are My highly favored one.

God, my waters just broke! There’s no one to come help us. We don’t know how to deliver a baby!

You are My highly favored one.

God, this pain is too much for me. Why did You bring me here to die in shame?

You are My highly favored one.

God, this child is the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen. I don’t feel worthy to touch him, let alone be his mother. Thank You for this gift that is too wonderful for words. My life may be far from perfect, but Your will is always good.

I am Your highly favored one.
