Life is a gift. Jesus is Truth, Life and the Way. Because of His sacrifice in our behalf we have new life in Him. When our eyes are opened to the Truth we can more appreciate all the gifts bestowed upon us. We then are equipped to help show the Way to another.
Gifts of Life
My heart ponders in my quiet times,
The beautiful gifts of life God has left for me to find.
I hear the lovely songs the birds sing,
As, I take a deep breath supplied by my King.
The gift of the sun’s shine, that warms my skin,
Is joined, by the soft touch of the wind.
At the hum of the hummingbirds that fly past my ear,
I in awe wonder at how fast they again disappear.
The sound of the bubbling flowing-stream outdoors:
Is another gentle reminder of life’s gifts from the Lord.
In this quiet place it’s clear to see,
That my God has bestowed yet another gift; His sweet peace.
Safe and secure in His divine care,
I remember I have a story to share.
Before I knew Jesus and before I was given new sight,
It felt nothing in my world was quite right.
Because of Jesus I am now of God’s family a part,
He is the true reason life’s gifts are precious in my heart.
1 Chronicles 29:11
Thine, O LORD, is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty: for all that is in the heaven and in the earth is thine; thine is the kingdom, O LORD, and thou art exalted as head above all.
