Merry Christmas: A Poem & A Prayer

It wasn't the tree that appeared delightful and green

It wasn't the man in the bright red suit that is jolly when seen

It wasn't the present that blessed my heart to receive

Nor was it the splendid attitudes that this Christmas allows many to perceive

It was someone more incredible

A love so real and more tangible

It was a deed that could never be undone

A reason to remember that outlasts any temporary fun

Not from the chimney, nor the north pole he comes

Neither for the cookies or the milk on his gums

But to give something so precious and prized to be remembered

To bring back God's children who were once estranged and dismembered.

He is the greatest gift that changed the course of humankind

He is the greatest gift that was given that caused time to rewind

Back to the days when God and man had constant communion

Where genuine relationship caused an unbreakable union

Our Father gave us a gift that will be treasured forever

A gift through Christ which would cause freedom for whomever

It wasn't a bargain, a bribe, or a treat

It was an opportunity that seems way too sweet

Christ was given for the broken, the lost, the lame

Christ was given to bring meaning to life for all those who would call on his name

Christ was given for those who could not believe in themselves

Christ was given to allow hope, peace, and strength, on empty heart shelves

He did it not do it to be known as the Greatest Of All Time, the G.O.A.T.

But on a mission for his Father, to bring a restoration coat

So that relationship could once again be established

To humankind Christ came, and with his blood the chains of sin are demolished.

Merry Christmas!


I pray that this year you stop to acknowledge the greatest gift ever given for you. I pray that you meditate and appreciate the sacrifice Christ gave. Enjoy your time with your family and friends, but please remember to say thank you to our Triune God who continues to give us blessing, strength, encouragement, and so much more. If you did not have the funds to buy all you wanted this year, remember there is still so much to be thankful for. I pray that you will take time to build your relationship with the Father. Finally, I pray that 2018 is one of the best years of your life!

In Jesus name, Amen.
