Gone was the idea that God was absent.
Gone was the lingering doubt about the Messiah.
Gone was feeling of abandonment.
Life was about to change.
There was no more waiting.
There was no more wondering what to do.
God was coming.
Joseph, when he heard the news.
24 And Joseph awoke from his sleep and did as the angel of the Lord commanded him, and took Mary as his wife, 25 but kept her a virgin until she gave birth to a Son; and he called His name Jesus. – Matthew 1:24-25
