Fullfilled promises

I wrote yhis poem in 2003. Todays message at Church inspired me to read it again. I want to share it with you.


She was a young girl
With a heart of purity
She lived in Bethlehem
Her name was Mary

She was a poor girl
From a poor part of town
But in the Lord's eyes
She wore a robe and a crown

The Angel Gabriel brought her the news that day
And she said yes
And through her reputation away

Heavy, burdened
With a child in her womb
They searched and searched
But could find no room

So this Princess
Bore the King of Heaven
In a stable
With sheep, hay, and oxen

What she saw
Was so amazing that night
She saw her Saviour
Filled with majesty and light
Being worshiped, by Shepherds and Kings
How amazing, to be the Mother to THE KING

The barn was filled with God's presence
A mark of this young girls life
This lowly, hurting, young women
Witnessed, the birth of JESUS CHRIST

Today the message preached at City Central was about Christmas, but Jerry Fry ended the message with a profound statement. "Christmas isn't just about Jesus being born. It's about fullfilled promises."  How many of you are waiting on fullfilled promises?  I am. My ministry, a HUSBAND!  Ha ha ha.  I love this verse.  It is spoken by Elizabeth, when she sees Mary and John the Baptist leaps in her womb.  Luke 1:45 "Blessed is she who believed that what the Lord has said to her will be accomplished!"  This is a total woman power moment!! Two annointed sisters, sharing a Holy encouragement moment. How empowering!! I say to all my sistas out there, including me,  "Blessed is she who believed that what the Lord has said to her will be accomplished!"  God will answer our hearts desires, and bring to fruition our desires, gifting, talents and callings. He fullfills His promises!!
