There Is A Child

gaillovesgodspoetry

There was a God and there was a girl.
He protected her from so much of her world.
It would take a lot of time for her to realize
With all she experienced with her innocent eyes.
For so long, all she knew was terror and fear.
Death, filth, and violence were always near.
But then her soul had opened to Christ,
And He would lead her the rest of her life.
When the time came to take a look back,
She would see God’s presence she never lacked.
She saw she was protected from so much
By a God who gave her so much love.
She was learning how to love Him too,
And praise Him with all His glory due.
There is a God and there is a child.
A woman learned she was His all the while.

A Delightful Celebration

gaillovesgodspoetry

Twinkle, twinkle, Christmas light,
You brighten the Christmas tree.
I love to watch your playful dance
As you entertain me.
Tinsel and glitter, how you glisten.
I love to watch you shine.
You make the tree come alive.
The pleasure is all mine.
Balls and bows, and ornaments,
Garland to wrap around.
A beautiful star to top the tree,
And presents to be found.
A delightful way to celebrate
The life of Jesus Christ.
The Savior born to be a King.
Our Lamb of Sacrifice.

No More Time To Waste

Lord, hymns like the one below (Have I Done My Best for Jesus? by E. D. Young ) make me ask how I even have the right to ask such honest questions, let alone sing the words. But it also compels me not to waste any more precious time that needs to be used for furthering Your kingdom and reaching out to Your children. You deserve ALL Your praise! And I don’t wish to waste one more breath with questions that YOU have not given me as You do when You give me poetry, words of encouragement for others, and this invaluable hymn You gave to E.D. Young.

Thank You for allowing me to learn it,
for every time You have brought it to mind,
and for allowing me to sing it TO and FOR You!

I love You, Father! ❤ I love You, Jesus! ❤ I love You, Holy Spirit! ❤

I wonder have I done my best for Jesus,
Who died upon the cruel tree?
To think of His great sacrifice at Calvary!
I know my Lord expects the best from me.

The hours that I have wasted are so many
The hours I’ve spent for Christ so few;
Because of all my lack of love for Jesus,
I wonder if His heart is breaking too.

I wonder have I cared enough for others,
Or have I let them die alone?
I might have helped a wand’rer to the Savior,
The seed of precious Life I might have sown.

No longer will I stay within the valley
I’ll climb to mountain heights above;
The world is dying now for want of someone
To tell them of the Savior’s matchless love.

Chorus:
How many are the lost that I have lifted?
How many are the chained I’ve helped to free?
I wonder, have I done my best for Jesus,
When He has done so much for me?
– Have I Done My Best for Jesus? by E. D. Young –

Such A Gift

Christ is such a GIFT! He was given and given so much on our behalf. What a gift to know Him, love Him, and serve Him. I pray that you are able to accept and enjoy your gift in Him too! ❤
God is such a GIFT! He has been generous with us from the moment He gave us life. Without Him, nothing and no one would be. The most precious thing He ever gave me… was His Son! He gave Him for you too! God loves you! ❤
The Holy Ghost is such a GIFT! He gives me guidance, comfort, and peace that passeth all understanding! The most beautiful comfort He ever gave anyone was to my Savior as He hung on the cross for me and you. He is more than willing to give you the peace and comfort you seek! The Holy Ghost loves you! ❤

Gifts 2017 #13 Strength

Christmas Countdown: Strength is a GIFT. Just when you think God can’t use you, or you feel like you’re not going to make it, or you simply want to give up, He surprises you with amazing strength… ALL His of course! To God be the glory!

“I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.”
– Philippians 4:13 KJV

Gifts 2017 #11 Compassion

Christmas Countdown: Compassion is such a GIFT: Sometimes forgiveness can be such a hard thing, or at least a needed repeat to achieve, especially where others have done such harm, with no remorse, and no concern. It is at times like these that compassion can be so much easier than forgiveness… in realizing how much that person is hurting themselves more than anyone, and there is nothing you can do but forgive… have compassion. Thank you, Lord, for your genuine compassion and willingness to forgive… ME! ❤
