This Christmas, Remember the Promise

’Twas the week before Christmas and all through the world

A pandemic changed lives of men and women

Of every boy and each girl

Months of sickness and job loss

Families quarantined

Hope for the hopeless

Remained to be seen

What about presents for family, gifts for the kids?

Parents fretted

There were no surprises normally hid

God above looked at all

Shaking his head

Does no one remember Christ Jesus,

Who rose from the dead?

I, as the Father, became Immanuel The Son

Through birth, death and resurrection

The battle is already won

Jesus ultimate sacrifice

through shed blood and death on the cross

Is every Believer’s gain, overpowering any loss

If you believe in Me, your battles are won

Look not at the material, the glitter and gold

Rather focus on the gifts which cannot be sold

Salvation, life, joy and peace

With all his money, even

Jeff Bezos can’t buy these

It is time people focus on what they have,

Not on what they don’t

Praise and gratitude gives Me glory

While complaining just won’t

While I see all your troubles, your problems and cares

This is the season to appreciate,

take even the little and share

Jesus left you all with a promise

Delivered as full and paid

Live like you believe it, each and every day

“I will not leave you nor forsake you”

Is a promise — pandemic or not

God is wide awake, not sleeping

Do you feel He forgot?
