A Christmas Gift

December 24, 2014

I’ve received a gift
It’s the divine grace of faith
I offer myself
My mind will be your workshop
My heart will be your playground


My soul flourishes
I will be God’s workmanship
His poetry in this world
Living with a fire
Accessing this deep friendship
Gift available to all


Please form Christ in me
I will be engaged in truth
Feelings will not deter me
I accept your love


Christmas Truth


The littlest child
Hidden in a manger still
I sing “Silent Night”


The light of the world
Coming down to bring real joy
Unending love given all
Who will believe it
Historically certain
It is verifiable


Please consider this story
Don’t take others word for it
Religious or atheist
You can decide this


Consider all things
Get all the information
Respect your judgment
Listen to your broken heart
Listen to the heart of God


I’m given a mind
A heart, soul and a body
Time to consider
What is true – what is not true
I have chosen to believe


The littlest child
Hidden in a manger
Was the Son of God
I am alive to live it
I am free to share the joy


Death has no power
I have chosen where to stand
A resurrection
Has taken place in my soul
Both now and forever more
