I will never forget his sincerity as he talked about loving Jesus. He was just a boy, but he stood in his church and shared what was on his heart. He felt he had no good birthday gift for Jesus, so he offered all he had to give.



 

A Boy's Christmas Prayer

Dear Lord, I know that I am small
and haven't much to give for You,
But what I want, Lord, most of all
is day by day to live for You!

Will you help me to tell my friends
that Jesus Christ died to save them,
to tell them of life that never ends
because His own life He gave them.

And will You help me kind to be
just as Jesus was to others,
loving and helping cheerfully,
(even my sisters and brothers?)

Help me to live a clean, pure life
shining with brightest love for you.
When temptation I meet, or strife,
Lord, help me ever to be true !

This is the birthday of your Son
and I have just one gift -- so small;
I know it isn't much, dear One,
but I give You myself -- that's all!

This is beautiful, Connie. Though I'm late in reading it, I was struck that like the boy, I too gave myself to Jesus for His birthday and always. So to me, this is a precious, meaningful write.
Happy New Year; and many more amazing writes.

God Bless

... it may be our "all", Connie, but to Him it is the jewel in the crown. Would we all were as focussed and straightforward as The Boy. Often we grow older but sadly not wiser. Thank you for this poignant and clearly defined reminder of keeping the main thing the main thing. Bless you and Happy Christmas to you, Connie. TY K xx
