ďThe GiftĒ

I once had a dream and in
my dream I saw a golden
Box placed into my hands
and I heard a voice from Heaven

"Open this Box for it is a Gift
of Faith given to thee this day."

As I started to unwrap this beautiful
Box given to me. I saw a Vision
before my eyes
of Jesus Christ hanging on a tree.

The voice from heaven said to
me;"before you open this box
You must understand and see
what My Only Begotten Son did
for humanity."

As I looked upon the cross;
this vision I saw;
I saw The Son of God
stripped of his clothing
and beaten for me.
Blood could be seen ever
where and I fell on my knees.

The Golden box started
to unravel upon its own
and from the box a White
Dove arose.

I called out to Jesus with
tears in my eyes and confessed
my sin.Then Heaven's
Dove entered into my heart;
and I no longer felt the guilt
of my sin for I had become
Born Again.

The voice from Heaven
said "Look deep into this
Box each day;for there
will be promises of Greater
Faith to follow the Way."

I awoke from my dream;
and tears where running down from
my eyes;there on my dresser
was my Bible and
it was opened to James 1:17.

Every Perfect gift is from
Heaven from the Father
Above;always delivered
In His Time and sent with
His Love.

My Faith grew stronger that day;
as I reflected on my dream;
and I Thanked God above for His Great
measure of Love and asked Him
to remind me each day what a precious
Gift He gave to me to Believe.

The Heavenly Father gave
me Faith To see Jesus
Great Love for me and to see That
with Faith;I can travel along lifes

It is by Faith,that
I hold onto the golden
Box of Godís promises for today and
for tomorrow;what ever comes my

Blessings and sorrow come to all;
but with the gift of Faith I believe
we can press forward and answer
the call to our God given destiny.

As we place our lives in the Hands
of our Heavenly Father each day;
life will be a Gift wrapped in Godís
Love;His Holy Spirit will guide
and guard our hearts as He unravels
the moments and hours in Grace;
as we seek Jesus Face.

We can embrace
The Blessings of the day;
knowing that we are never
alone;for it is in the Hand
of God that on earth we do trod.

For it is in the Love of His Son;
that our life has eternal value as
we share the Gift of Godís Love
with everyone.

Dear Dee... I echo all the wonderful comments written here. This is excellent! God has so many gifts to share with us, but first we must accept the GREATEST one -His dear life that He sacrificed so that we might be forgiven and live eternally with His Father! Once we accept that gift, the others come flowing out upon us! I agree with Sharon, YOU are a gift to us - a very special gift! As your birthday approaches, please feel all the love that is coming to you along with so many GOOD WISHES for a blessed year ahead! With love, Peggy

I like the picture you draw, of opening the gift box, and what was revealed to you by doing that. It is a pleasant way to present the story of God's sacrifice and what Christ did for us. God bless you as you continue to express yourself in verse.

"As we place our lives in the Hands of our Heavenly Father each day; life will be a Gift wrapped in Godís Love;His Holy Spirit will guide and guard our hearts as He unravels the moments and hours in Grace; as we seek Jesus Face." O perfect Gift, O Holy Gift, as we see Your face, we raise our voices in praise. To You be the glory for ever.

Dee, this is lovely. One of your best, I think. May God continue to bless and use you is my prayer.

This is very lovely Dee! Ps. 27:8--When You said, "Seek My face," My heart said to You, "Your face, Lord I will seek." What joys He has in store for those who seek His face. What a gift YOU are to us. I love you, Sharon
