His promise

I wish I was the one you call
When you are feeling week,
I would give you strength

I wish I was the one you call
When you are weary and burdened,
I would give you rest

I wish I was the one you call
When your heart is troubled
I would give you peace

I wish I was the one you call
When you are exited and filled with joy,
I would rejoice with you

I wish I was the one you call
When all your hope is gone,
I would comfort you

This is not just a wish, but a promise
If you call on my name I will be there for you.
Regardless of what you are going through,
Regardless of what you have done,
I love you so much to give up on you.

I will be there for you
And that is my promise.
Just call on the name of Jesus,
He will be there for you regardless
That is his promise to us.

So HE Loved

Before time, he sang of his love for me.
He told me, he knows the hairs on my head,
And my name is tattooed on his hands!
Wow, I said to myself, this must be some great love….
Love, it got me thinking, and I wondered …
This could be any different?

    I have heard that before,
    I believe, you have too
    I love you, but don’t fat,
    I love you, provided you don’t run broke,
    I love you, and a car will be a great gift.
    So how is HIS love any different …?

Day after day he worked on bring me close to him,
To be acknowledged, adored, and for me to lean on him!
You know the kind of friend that wants to give, more than receive!
But still my heart was hardened,
As though, that was not enough,
I was busy to notice, his greatness,
Or how much we could achieve together
I have sooooo much to do
This and that is not done …
I lamented over and over again!

    Can you believe, I crossed the sea on foot?
    Yet worriers died in the sea waters,
    With their horses stuck in mad?
    Who am I to be that great?
    Who am I to be I more than worriers?
    No! No! No!
    It wasn’t me, well, not on my own making
    But of the one that loved me.
    So much He loved me to save my life!

Did I notice his greatness then?
Did I lean on him then…?
No, I was still trying to get things done,
Searching for a greater yearning…
May be in wrong places,
But I was busy.

    He took another shot at me,
    May be at US; you and me
    With a baby-like innocent smile
    He cried; I love you!
    But did we acknowledge him?
    Did we adore him?
    Did we learn to lean on him?
    No, we were filled with a bigger mirage of what we wanted to see!

We lived with a king, but we knew him not,
So much He loved us, but so little did we know,
And now, all I can say is….
Merry Christmas
Just as a reminder,
That the king is here with us,
Lets us acknowledge him
Adore him, and learn to lean on him all the days of our life
For that is how much He loves us!
