Prophesied *Isaiah 9:6-7

Jesus Christ’s birth was prophesied long before He was born.
~~~
6 For unto us a Child is born,
Unto us a Son is given;
And the government will be upon His shoulder.
And His name will be called
Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
7 Of the increase of His government and peace
There will be no end,
Upon the throne of David and over His kingdom,
To order it and establish it with judgment and justice
From that time forward, even forever.
The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.
~~~
God always reveals what He is going to do before He does it. Not just once, but many times throughout the Holy Scriptures God spoke of His Son, the coming Messiah, who would bring salvation not just to the Jew, but the whole world too. Hallelujah!!! Thank you Lord.

Glory

Hallelujah Glory!
There is an awesome story.
It must be told.
It is from of old.
Salvation for mankind,
was on God’s mind.
~
His plan came to be,
to set humans free,
from the bondage of sin,
that dwells within.
To give man shalom,
and bring them home.
~
Messiah was born,
one Christmas morn,
for you and me,
to set us free,
from stress and strife,
to live a good life.

Wondrous Morn’

The Christ child is born
On this wondrous morn’
He came to set man free
That means you and me
He came to show us the way
Walk with Him & you’ll be okay
He is the Saviour for our sin
With Him you can only win
What a glorious day this is
I am so glad that I am His
~~~
So, let us all remember
This special day in December
When people celebrate His birth
Precious is Messiah Jesus’ worth
So in this Christmas season
Jesus Christ is the reason

Christmas Hustle

Christmas should be
the time of year,
When people are filled
with lots of cheer.
~
Being so busy,
hustle and bustle about,
Hoping what we want
will not run out.
~
The pace is quickened.
There’s so much to do.
Wanting to buy
only gifts for a few.
~
Then all of a sudden,
the time has drawn near.
It is almost that time,
and we say, “Oh dear”!
~
What has just happened,
what has gone wrong?
It is almost here,
and I haven’t a song.
~
Then I looked out my window,
to my amazement I saw,
the snow coming down.
It looked so cold and raw.
~
But wait!
What could this be?
It is my friends,
coming to visit me.
~
I opened the door,
and invited them in.
I could hardly wait,
for the talk to begin.
~
“We have been hearing,
that you are sad and blue.
There is so little time left,
and there’s so much to do.
~
We came over to see you,
because you needed to hear
‘This is a joyous time,
so why do you fear?
~
Put your trust in the Lord,
He will give you a song.
Why not do this?
How can you go wrong?
~
His peace He will give you,
you only need to ask.
Why not do it now?
This is not a hard task!’ ”
~
I sat there and thought,
Oh, now what have I done!
I do trust in,
the Almighty One.
~
I changed my focus,
onto the One above.
And now I could feel,
His mighty love.
~
Oh this felt great,
and I felt so grand.
I was ready to go,
for I was in His hand.
~
We said our good byes.
They walked out the door.
For now filled with peace,
I did fret no more.

Several Reasons

There are several reasons
For the Lord’s times & seasons
But the main reason
For each season
Is to take time to remember
It’s for each and every member
Remember what God has done
How He has blessed each one
He is your protector and shield
Physical, emotional, spiritual He’s healed
In Jesus we have new life
He’s with us through calm and strife
He wants each one to know
O how He loves us so
His desire is that there be no loss
We obtain salvation through the cross
He gave his life freely for us
Remember to thank the Lord Jesus
If it wasn’t for Him
Our lives would be worse than grim
So remember God’s gift of His Son
Our life and victory He has won
Thank you Lord our God for what You’ve done
Blessed, blessed be Your Name O most Holy One

Much

Why am I often sad
when I should be glad?
I have been blessed
along with the rest.
I have been given much
which my spirit does clutch.
Joy and peace are found
to be always around,
but sadness is there too
discontentment comes through.
This troubled soul
needs to be made whole.
Removing all factions
will lead to great actions.
This wholeness
will lead to boldness,
then I will be strong
for I’m where I belong.

Holiday Struggle

The holiday struggle,
it’s so hard to juggle.
Oh, what should I do?
I don’t want to be blue.
~
There is so much on my mind.
I do so need to find,
a way to get through,
all that I have to do.
~
I will just sit here,
and dismiss all fear.
I don’t want to miss,
the meaning of this.
~
Christmas should not cause strife,
all the time in my life.
I need to let go,
and go with the flow.
~
So I will.
I shall fill,
my mind with a good thought,
and not be high-wrought.
~
I will smirk,
when at work.
I will not let things get me down,
for I do not want to frown.
~
I will focus on what is true,
If it is the last thing I do.
I will be in a good mood,
and I will not brood.

One Reason

There is only one reason
For this truly joyful season
Yes, there is only one
That reason is Jesus the Son
Yes, Jesus Christ is the reason
For this miraculous season
~~~
The hustle and bustle do not let
Jesus Christ our Saviour forget
So, proclaim with voice aloud
Messiah Jesus to the crowd
Come now and be swift
To tell of this wondrous gift
This season is Jesus’ birth
The gift God gave to the earth
