Because our world doubts...

Luke 28-38- NIV
The angel went to her and said, "Greetings, you who are highly favored! The Lord is with you."
Mary was greatly troubled at his words and wondered what kind of greeting this might be. But the angel said to her, "Do not be afraid, Mary, you have found favor with God. You will be with child and give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus. He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David, and he will reign over the house of Jacob forever; his kingdom will never end."

"How will this be?" Mary asked the angel.....[The angel replied,] "Nothing is impossible with God."
It's True

In your heart you
Hope it's true
Though you hold no expectation
In the deepest part of you
There's an open hesitation

But it's true
Kingdoms and crowns
The God who came down to find you

It's true
Angels on high
Sing through the night alleluia

Heard it told you
Think it's odd
The whole thing fraught with complication
The play begins with Baby God
And all His blessed implications

But it's true
Kingdoms and crowns
The God who came down to find you

It's true
Angels on high
Sing through the night alleluia
