All those who heard of it treasured it in their hearts (Luk 1:66 NJB)

Again a bit late for a morning reflection, so again just a single thought...

Zechariah was silenced when he did not trust in the message the angel brought to him, and he lost the power of speech. Today we read that Zechariah does Gods will and "immediately his mouth was opened and his tongue loosed, and he spoke" (Luk 1:64 RSV)

Initially, it just struck me that if we do God's will, the Holy Spirit will work in us and loosen our tongues to say the words that are needed at that particular time. I think this is an experience many who try and bring the Good News to others have experienced this in some way...

But maybe it is possible to ponder this a bit deeper and to see that if one does God's Will things will happen, things will come together. Maybe not always as we expect (but that would be doing our own will), but in a way that leads us along the path that is traced out for us, the path to ultimate happiness.
