Chosen Star

I look up at the stars
And I see the Master’s plan
He placed them one by one
Before our time began

All down through the ages
Those stars have shown their light
Always in formation
To guide us in the night

Then one night, a change was seen
One star was singled out
To shine much brighter than the rest
A loud celestial shout

On brightest star, Oh chosen star
You shine your glorious light
To lead us all to Christ the King
On this most Holy night

This star then found its special place
To shine those brighter rays
It took its place above a town
Where God’s own Son was laid

Three kings had seen the star so bright
From lands so far away
They came to bring gifts to the child
In a manger filled with hay

Gold, because He’s royalty
As priest, the Frankincense
Myrrh, anointing for His death
Which would be so intense

On brightest star, Oh chosen star
You shine your glorious light
To lead us all to Christ the King
On this most Holy night

My Desire

This poem was written with inspiration from Scott’s blog this morning.  You can read it at  THIS ADDRESS

I used to desire riches
I thought they would satisfy
And though I gathered up many
My heart had a lonely cry

I used to desire pleasures
That took all my riches away
They made me feel good for a moment
Then pay for them dearly next day

I used to desire real power
So I could feel big and alive
But pride was what then resulted
I fell flat on my face and I cried

Then I learned of someone named Jesus
Who would fill the desires of my heart
I did not believe it was possible
But I needed a brand new start

I knelt down one day at the altar
I slowly looked up to the sky
Then I cried out to Him
Asking Him to come in
That day my life changed on the fly

My desire is now for just Jesus
He is all that I want or need
He fills me with love
His joy fills my cup
And to top it all off I have peace

If your soul is longing for more
And you never are satisfied
Just cry out to Him
Asking Him to come in
And you’ll suddenly feel alive
