GOD WITH US – POETRY BY KATHY BOECHER
You came to a world filled with darkness and sin,
You loved us devoutly without and within,
Your love conquered all through a child meek and small,
Dear, God, Your Son came, and He died for us all.
You took away sadness and filled us with peace,
You give us a hope that defies life’s surcease.
You gave Your life for us so we could be free.
Sweet Jesus, Your blood you did shed on the tree.
Your body lay lifeless, but rose on that day,
To conquer the devil – our ransom to pay,
So now we look forward to that special time,
When we will live with You in heaven sublime,
Come quickly Lord, Jesus, and carry us home,
Remove all the darkness, bring light where we roam,
Be with us forever and love us each day,
Sweet Jesus, we love you, what more can we say?
The most exciting adventure known to mankind, began at the very beginning of creation. God made man in His own image. He loved His human creation so much that, even though they betrayed and disobeyed Him, He came to dwell among them and take away their sin. Isaiah foretold this great, unimaginable love seven hundred years before it happened. We can look back at these early prophecies and see how they were fulfilled in the birth of Jesus, but are we prepared for His return? Every day, God’s promises are kept. Every day we can see His hand at work in our lives. We can see the threads being woven together to bring us closer to Him, but can we truly imagine God living among us? The day is coming when that prophecy will also be fulfilled. It is the highway paved with gold that leads to our reunion with our heavenly Father. Prepare for the next adventure. It’s right around the corner.
“Therefore, the Lord himself will give you a sign. Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.” Isaiah 7:14
