‘Can We Make This Work’ Music From Journey To Bethlehem Film

Two of the main characters, Mary and Joseph, from the upcoming film “Journey to Bethlehem” gave a dazzling and awe-inspiring performance, singing a tune articulating the fear and confusion they must have had at the time.  

Christmas Day and the surrounding season are celebrated and recognized for when Jesus Christ, the Savior, entered the world, born in a Bethlehem stable. A most joyous occasion indeed! But given the monumental, world-changing birth, it’s easy to forget the average, ordinary people God used in extraordinary ways.

God selected Mary, a virgin, a woman of little means and low stature in society, to give birth to His Son. He also picked Joseph to be Mary’s husband and to serve as Jesus’ earthly father. An angel of the Lord appeared to both individuals and informed them of God’s plan for them, trying to quell their fears. 

Both were obviously willing servants of the Lord. But the amount of stress, anxiety, fear and uncertainty they were each experiencing throughout the entire ordeal must have been massive. 

In a clip posted on YouTube, the two actors – Fiona Paloma and Milo Manheim - who play Mary and Joseph in “Journey to Bethlehem” sing “Can We Make This Work” about their fear and uncertainty. 

“It’s hard to have faith
It’s hard to believe
Our future holds more 
Than what we can see
We have to trust what we don’t understand”

The tune is a beautifully written and elegantly performed track, likely perfectly capturing the thoughts and feelings of the two regular, everyday people God used in an incredible way to bring monumental change to our fallen world. 

Praise God that Mary and Joseph were willing and faithful servants. They put aside their trepidation and panic and placed their trust in God, listening to and believing that He would see them through the ordeal.  

Matthew 1:20 “But when he thought on these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, ‘Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit.”’
