Come Lord Jesus, Come

The Christmas Truce of 1914...Everywhere I read these days, I seem to come across this amazing story. It is as if there is collectively, a deep yearning today for a truce in our own lives. Peace. What is the battle do you think? Perhaps it is the war on terrorism, perhaps it is a more personal battle - a relational battle or a battle against illness, perhaps it is a specific spiritual battle...Whatever it is, there seems to be a wave of deep desire for peace that is being expressed out loud more and more.

I had a dream once that I spoke with my King
He let me into His confidence to see
The prayers of the people young and old.
All over the land I heard their cry
Formal and not, words and sighs
The sounds rose up to our Great King's Throne
They rose individually, but meshed as one
The cry of each person became a musical song
Beautiful to hear
Then something happen, quite extraordinaire
The prayers that became songs that were exquisite to hear
Became one song and then one prayer...
The answer to everyone's prayer was the same
For it is the true cry of our hearts to answer the pain
To bring peace...
The truest, deepest yearning of our being desires


Now, we celebrate the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ, but we look forward to His coming again.

Merry Christmas to each of you, may His Peace fill you as you hope in Him.

They Did Not Realize

Early in the morning, Jesus stood on the shore, but the disciples did not realize that it was Jesus. ~John 21:4
