This Amazing Grace ~

It’s a thing of beauty,
a thing of hope and love
it’s a thing of wonder
this grace from God above.

It’s a thing of strength,
when we’re feeling faint
it’s a thing of confidence
it’s our spiritual restraint.

It’s a thing we should seek,
something we must grow
it’s a thing for us to share
with every one we know.

It’s a thing of praise,
a thing to adore
it’s an amazing thing
a gift we can’t ignore.

This grace covers our past,
our today, our future
this grace we all need . . .
to cultivate and nurture!

~~~~~~~~~

2 Peter 3:18

But grow in grace,
and in the knowledge
of our Lord and Saviour
Jesus Christ. To him be
glory both now and
for ever. Amen.

2 Corinthians 9:8

“And God is able to make
all grace abound toward you;
that ye, always having all
sufficiency in all things,
may abound to every
good work:”

A Special Gift ~

we-belong-to-one-another_CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Each of us has a purpose,
we just need to find it
each has a talent to apply
so together we can fit.

Each of us has a measure,
of faith to utilize
each has a job to do
if our part we’d realize.

Each of us has a role,
a service to perform
each has a function
whether a leg or an arm.

Each of us has a portion,
of grace for us to use
each has a dose of love
that we need to infuse.

Each of us has a duty,
to serve God in some way
each of us has a special gift
everyone, a role to play!

Romans 12:5-6
King James Version

“So we, being many, are one body in Christ,
and every one members one of another.

Having then gifts differing according
to the grace that is given to us;”

The Gift That Keeps Giving ~

Christmas Memories used with Permission IBible Verses

I have for you a gift,
that keeps on giving
I bet it’s like no other
that you’ll be getting.

It takes a whole lifetime,
to discover its full measure
ah, but what is inside
you will forever treasure.

There is no real price,
anyone can put on it
it’s so enormous in value
that everyone it fits.

It’s bundled up and swaddled,
in mercy and eternal grace
wrapped up so ever tightly
is God’s love for you to embrace.

Please won’t you take it,
this gift is for just for you
open it up and you will see
salvation makes all things new.

It will keep on giving,
each day you’ll find more
of Jesus’ undying love
to unwrap and explore!

Matthew 1:21
King James Version

“And she shall bring forth a son,
and thou shalt call his name Jesus:
for he shall save his people from their sins.”

Every Day is Christmas ~

Christmas by Rode Pannell free photo #17366

Every day is Christmas,
if the Gift ~ you receive
every day there is a present
if in the Gift ~ you believe.

Every day brings new life,
if the Gift ~ you except
every day is a miracle
if the Gift ~ you don’t reject.

Every day you are offered,
the One true Gift from above
every day you can decide
to open this gift of love.

Every day comes a new hope
if you’d just ask Jesus in
every day He will love you
and bring you peace within!

~~~~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 4:7
King James Version

“But unto every one of us is given grace
according to the measure of the gift of Christ.”

My Gift of Trust ~

Lord, I don’t have gold or frankincense,
and it seems I’m all out of myrrh
but. I’ve a gift just as wonderful
and I know You’ll agree and concur.

For, what I have to offer You,
is more precious to You then these
so, I come to You with my treasure
and offer it to You on bent knees.

Lord, I’m giving You my entire life,
and all my worldly possessions
I am going to make You the Lord
over my material obsessions.

I am giving You my eternal hope,
with jubilant thankful praise
I am giving You my soul’s devotion
for the rest of my living days.

Lord, I am giving You my gift of trust,
no matter what may come my way
and I’m going to worship and adore You
as if each day was Christmas Day!

Matthew 2:11
King James Version

“And when they were come into the house,
they saw the young child with Mary his
mother, and fell down, and worshipped him:
and when they had opened their treasures,
they presented unto him gifts; gold, and
frankincense and myrrh.”

Give the Gift of Jesus ~

Believe by Aaron Ufema free photo # 6285

This Christmas . . .

I’m decorating my heart,
with the wrappings of God’s love
tying a ribbon around my soul
with His blessings from above.

I going to avoid all the malls,
and stop not at a single store
the only present I will give
is the One that will restore.

I’m giving the gift of forgiveness,
sending cards about His grace
I’m letting the glory of His birth
beam across my thankful face.

I’m opening up my home,
for everyone to come and see
the light of His beauty
so to celebrate His birth with me.

I’m serving a dish of Christmas joy,
and offering up God’s good cheer
we will feast upon His holiness
and rejoice that our Savior’s here.

I’m baking Him up a special cake,
singing to Him a birthday song
and a slice of His love and mercy
I’ll give out for all to take along.

I’m giving the offering of Jesus,
at naught at cost to me . . .
I’m sending out the message,
there is One gift that is free!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Acts 8:20
King James Version

“But Peter said unto him,
Thy money perish with thee,

because thou hast thought
that the gift of God

may be purchased with money.”
