Peace On Earth

Peace on Earth

““Glory to God in the highest, And on earth peace, goodwill toward men!””
‭‭Luke‬ ‭2:14‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

Peace On Earth

At this special season
When gifts are normally given
I have my online order ready
I am sending it to You in heaven

Is it too late for first class delivery
From Your heart to their address
You know the ones I pray for
Yes I am partial I must confess

I think they’ll be amazed
When they see it is from You
They’ve been so hurried this season
With all the things, so much to do

Lord what is the perfect gift this year,
Hope and Peace!
Likened to the hush of angels wings
Oh yes their spirits will soar
With hearts set free to sing

You will be delivering the gift in person
Oh no I’m not surprised
Why didn’t I think of this
Placed right before their eyes

Thank You Lord for taking
My online order this late
I know it’s so close to Christmas
I adore how You relegate

Thank You for Special Delivery
Upgraded at no extra cost
Free for returning customers
Wow! Personalized and embossed

When they see their name
Etched into Your palm
May their hearts soak in
Christmas peace and healing balm

The gift that last forever
Offering hope to one and all
Yes Jesus was delivered for us
Peace on earth, Christmas altar call

Often we find ourselves hurried with last minute shopping and gifts to buy. Making certain no one is without a gift on Christmas Day. I cannot think of anything worse than to have someone in my home or at my gathering that didn’t have or receive a gift. Can you imagine the sting to the one left out? Imagine if you will if that someone were you, or one you loved. Oh our heart would break. We would feel the ache in the heart of one we loved. How much more the Father longs for each of us to receive His gift of salvation. The gift delivered at Christmas is opened at the cross but you must receive to understand and open.

As families gather this year I pray a deep famishing soul hunger engulf those around us. For unsaved or prodigals I pray they realize their spiritual starvation. Like the aroma from the oven I pray a soul hunger is ignited. If there be any in our midst without salvation I pray their soul hungers, sensing the love of Christ-mas. I pray they cry out for their gift, the gift of God’s redemptive love from Christ our Savior. This Christmas let’s not forget the True Gift, the gift of Jesus Christ who came to give light to a dark lost world. I pray we lead others who will pray the sinners prayer. What a gift for our Lord!

Oh yes Father, stir up the gift inside of every believer. Let the aroma of Christmas’ Love cause others to cry out where is my gift? I long for the gift of salvation Lord Jesus! Yes, what a celebration.

Merry Christmas

God bless you and keep you and make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you. The Lord cause His countenance to rise upon you and give you Shalom!

Until next time, thank you for listening with me. Laurette
