A LOWLY CHILD

ab59da3bf57e8281c227df722e2a240f

A child just turned a woman, became the chosen one,

To hold the Son of God within – to be her firstborn Son,

An ordinary child was she – a lowly servant girl,

Extraordinary things would happen, for her and all the world,

Through Mary’s contemplation of this exalted state,

She knew that God was faithful, and she would simply wait,

She trusted every word she heard through Gabriel’s angel voice,

A message from Jehovah, God, had blessed her with this choice,

Her faith remained, yet she was scared, what would her family say,

She thought of her intended groom, and her own weddingday,

But still within that quiet night, acceptance filled her soul,

Though fear remained she trusted God, to use her for His goal.

To bring to man forgiveness from every single sin.

Fulfill His word of promise and make all clean within.

Oh for a faith like Mary had, to trust without a doubt,

That she would be the vessel for what God would carry out,

He uses those like you and me, to work His glorious will,

We’re all just ordinary folks, but He can use us still,

The Holy Spirit will be there, igniting flames of trust,

Within the hearts and souls of men, for He is good and just.

About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.
