A gift of words

I have thought hard about what gift to give today.  Most often, the real gifts do not come at a monetary cost.  They are usually something from the heart.  They are handed to us to usher a change.  To allow new perspective.  To instill a value in something.  
So the gift I chose today are words.  They are not mine.  They are from Priscilla Shirer & they are amazing!  They are poignant & real & true & they could not be more beautifully written.  They are even more powerful when she speaks them.  So go unwrap the gift and.....Enjoy!!

Who do we belong to?

He is the first and the last, the beginning and the end.
He’s the keeper of creation and the creator of all.
He’s the architect of the universe and the manager of all time.
He always was, always is, always will be unmoved, unchanged, undefeated and never undone.

He was bruised but brought healing
He was pierced but eased pain.
He was persecuted but brought freedom.
He was dead and brings life.
He is risen to bring power
And he was raised to bring peace.

The world can’t understand Him.
Armies can’t defeat Him.
Schools can’t explain Him.
And leaders can’t ignore Him.
Herod couldn’t kill Him.
Nero couldn’t crush Him.
The New Age cannot replace Him.
And Oprah cannot explain Him away.

He is life, He is love, He is longevity and He is the Lord.
He is goodness and kindness and faithfulness
And He is God.
He is holy and righteous and powerful and pure.
His ways are right
His word eternal
His will is unchanging and His mind is on us
He is our Savior, our Guide, our peace our joy,
our comfort, our Lord and He rules our lives.

I serve Him because his bond is love
His yoke is easy
His burden is light
And His goal for us is abundant life.

I follow Him because He is the wisdom of wise,
The power of the powerful,
The ancient of days,
The ruler of rulers,
The leader of all leaders
His goal is a relationship with me.

He will never leave you,
Never forsake you,
Never mislead you,
Never forget you,
Never overlook you,
And never cancel your appointment in His appointment book.

When you fall He’ll lift you up,
When you fail He’ll forgive you,
When you’re weak, He’s strong,
When you’re lost, He’s your way,
When you’re afraid, He’s your courage,
When you stumble, He will steady you,
When you’re hurt, He’s going to heal you,
When you’re broken, He will mend you,
When you’re blind, He will lead you,
When you’re hungry, He will feed you,
When you face trials, He’s with you,
When you face persecution, He will shield you,
When I face problems, He will comfort me,
When I face loss, He will provide for me,
And when we face death, He will carry us all home to meet Him.

He is everything for everybody, everywhere, every time and in every way.
He is God and that is who you belong to!
