Your present condition does not dictate your future, your faith in God does.
The Word of God is living and active. If you confess the Word of God over your heart and life, it will not return void. We encourage you to meditate on these confessions.

Confession


And I have put my words in thy mouth, and I have covered thee in the shadow of mine hand, that I may plant the heavens, and lay the foundations of the earth, and say unto Zion, Thou art my people. (Isaiah 51:16)

The Lord has put His words in my mouth therefore I shall be his mouthpiece, and because He covers me I shall not be afraid to speak.

The Miracle of Christmas

Eugene L Clark is a man who discovered that "nothing is impossible". Blind and bedridden with crippling arthritis, Eugene did not allow his handicaps to diminish his service for God. He composed and arranged music by dictating each song, note by note and word by word into a dictating machine. He has written 3 cantatas and nearly 200 songs during his illness. Eugene wrote "My Hope" a book of inspiring poems which express his faith in God and his concern for the lost of which the following were taken from



The Miracle of Christmas by Eugene Clark


Many were the miracles
That night of Jesus' birth
The wonders in the eastern sky,
The signs upon the earth.
Mary was a miracle
By prophets long foretold:
A virgin bringing forth a Son,
Amazing to behold!
But the miracle of Miracles,The wonder of it all,
Was not the virgin Mary,
The stable and the stall;
It was that God himself had come,Incarnate as a child,
That God and sinful man might be
Forever reconciled.

Angels from the realms on high
To lowly shepherds came,
Proclaiming peace, goodwill to men.
and glory to His name
wise men saw the star appear,
Announcing Christ the King;
To guide them on their journey west,
Their precious gifts to bring.
But the miracle of miracles
was not the eastern star,
The angels near to Bethlehem,
Or wise men from afar;
It was that God himself had come,
Incarnate as a child,
That God and sinful man might be
Forever reconciled.




The Keeper of the Inn



Long years ago in Bethlehem
The keeper of the inn,
For Joseph, Mary and the Babe,
Would make no room within.
He bolted fast the wooden door
And made them go away
Into a bedless stable, where
They slept upon the hay.
Now you are keeper of the inn,
And Jesus stands outside;
The latchstring hangs inside the door.
Will you let Him inside?


Once Jesus came in human flesh
To die for all our sin.
Now He in spirit comes to man,
And asks us to enter in.
Now you are keeper of the inn
The inn which is your heart.
The choice is yours to ask him in.
Or bid him to depart.
O Jesus, come in human flesh
To save us from our sin,
I gladly open wide the door,
Come now and enter in.

Beautiful! I think we really are limited more by our own attitudes and vision than any other outside influence. Thanks for sharing!

Lori said...

Both poems are beautiful. "The Keeper of the Inn" was especially
symbolic of Jesus knocking on your door. I never heard anyone relate the two. Thank you for that.

Gi said...

Hello Gi,

Very beautiful poems, with a powerful message.

I am sorry gi that i haven't been around more i have been working alot and just recently we had our house broken into so we have been dealing with that. We are so thankful to the Lord that noone was home it is only stuff and it can be replaced. We don't always have answers to why God allows things to happen but our lives are in His hands. I have told most of my blogger friends and we covet your prayers, our daughter is beginning to do better about being home alone.

Thank you so very much for the blog award for Tamela's place, i am sorry it has taken me so long to get back with you.

Blessings to you and yours this Christmas season Gi!
