Remember

The baby in the manger
The shepherds in the field
The wise men and their gifts
The angel in the heavens
The star shines up above
Mary bows her head
Joseph standing tall

The pageant is before us
As Christmas day does near
Maybe in the town square
Or in our church so dear

Usually little children
Act out the yearly scene
Showing us the Christ child
The way that it would seem

But do we really see Him
The King of Kings is He
Lord of all the heavens
Filled with God’s mercy

Do we bow before Him
Repenting of our sins
Do we give Him honor
And ask Him to come in

Come in to all our failures
Come in to all our pain
Come in to rescue us
And save us once again

This Christmas as you watch
The pageant and the show
Remember that this child
Is the one who saves your soul

Unique

I look at what my life was like
Before I knew the Lord
I had no cares or worries
And I truly had no goals

One day I realized
Just how fatuous this was
As I sat and heard a preacher
Telling me about the Lord

I gave my heart to Jesus
Later on in that same week
Now I know where I am headed
And I truly feel unique

For the King of Kings does love me
And He treats me as His child
Why don’t you come to Jesus
And give up being wild

This Child

We approach this season with anticipation
Our hearts burst forth with exhilaration
Each day is filled with great expectation
For Christmas Day to come

When I was young it was presents galore
That I would dash across the floor
To receive many gifts I would adore
When Christmas Day had come

But now the day is filled so much more
With that blessed hope and eternal joy
The Child that came is Christ my Lord
My Savior that has come

Let’s not forget what God has done
By sending us His only Son
To die upon a cross alone
To bear our sins away

Oh what love He has for you
That he would bear your sins for you
This Christmas make Him Lord of all
This Child has come for you

Soon and Very Soon

I can tell by the faint
Dim Light
Giving shape to the trees
And buildings far off
It increases
Slow but sure
I see the slight tint
On the dark gray clouds
Above the horizon

Soon and very soon

I can tell as the rays
Hit the bottom
Of the clouds
They start to light up
First a dull yellow
Growing slowly
In it’s glory
To a brilliant gold
Gilding the formerly gray
Obscure shapes

Soon and very soon

Those rays hit another cloud
Then another
Pink
Orange
Red
Purple
Colors appear across the sky
Extending further
And further
Lighting the sky
Thrilling the eye

Soon and very soon

The sun will peak it’s face
Over the horizon
The show will be over here
To be shown elsewhere
Further west
And further west
Throughout eternity

You Overwhelm Me Jesus

You overwhelm me Jesus
Every day that I’m alive
You give me every breath
You give sight to my eyes
You make the birds to sing
You cause the sun to rise
You overwhelm me Jesus
Because you give me life

You overwhelm me Jesus
I’m captured by your grace
Whenever i face hardships
I long to see your face
And when I’m down and dreary
You listen when I pray
You overwhelm me Jesus
In many different ways

You overwhelm me Jesus
I’ll lift my voice in praise
Because you are my Savior
My hands to you are raised
I’ll worship in the spirit
I’ll lift your holy name
You overwhelm me Jesus
Your wonders I’ll proclaim

Treasures in Heaven

I used to seek fame and fortune
My friends were what mattered to me
I’d laugh and I’d smile
I was high all the while
In their favor I wanted to be

Now my life values are different
Pleasing God is what matters to me
The one that I seek
Is truly unique
Just like Christ know want to be

This world has some treasures of dust
Their future is dim and bleak
What I will lay up
Will not corrupt
It is treasures in heaven for me

Do You Feel Special?

I can’t remember when I felt so special
As the day that I asked Jesus in my heart
I felt His love come in
As He wiped away my sin
And now I know I never will depart

You see I never thought that I was someone
Who had a very unique call to live
But He showed me the way
As He guided me each day
To the calling He had meant for me to fill

Perhaps you have never felt important
Maybe you just feel you disappearhttps://onedailyprompt.wordpress.com/2018/11/11/your-daily-word-prompt-unique-November-11-2018/
Just come to Jesus Christ
And He’ll transform your life
You’ll find you have a purpose every year

My Friends

I have many friends In Iowa
Who help me in time of need
But my very best friend in all the world
Lives down in Tennessee

But closer to me than him
Is my wife of 40 years
She has stood by my side through so many times
Through laughter and through tears

But the nearest of all to my heart and soul
Is Jesus Christ my Savior and Lord
There is no greater friends that you ever will have
Trust Him today and I know you’ll be glad
