THE FINAL NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS ONE DAY?

Twas the night before Christmas

and all through the world.

The spirit of peace

was finally unfurled.

When suddenly a roar

burst forth from the sky.

What was now happening!

“Are we gonna die?”

People sprang forth

clear from their slumber.

To crashes of lightening

And poundings of thunder.

From the east to the west

all started to say.

“No, it was not me

It was not that way!”

For in many languages

such words were now uttered.

People began weeping

and some even shuttered.

My gosh, what was happening

how was anyone to know?

There was no explanation

what God wanted to show.

See an inner convicting

was now taking place.

As each living soul

was meeting God face to face.

Though we can’t understand

just how this could be.

Oh how God was able to speak

to each one of thee?

But you see in His ways

it’s not about us knowing.

It’s all about eternity

and where we are going.

So if today all our ways

are not leading us above.

God’s giving us time

to accept His pure love.

Take this Christmas time

and ask Jesus to come in.

Turn from all evil

and turn from all sin.

So, when Jesus returns

 on that given day.

We  will be assured

what thr Father will say.

“Well done faithful servant,

It’s Heaven for you.

Step into My presence,

your journey is through!”

Now if these are the words

that you long to hear.

Grab hold of the season

and it’s meaning this year.

Remember that Christ

Stand to wait at the door.

With Him your new life

will become so much more.

Let God be your master

your LORD and your King.

Allow Him to rule

over every single thing.

And, in closing may God

bestow His peace over you.

As you do in your heart

What He calls you to do.

                                     Amen
