Testimony Tuesday 11/29

MERRY CHRISTMAS “just 4 weeks out"! 

In honor of Christmas month, I wanted to share a Christmas song that I wrote a couple of years ago. 

I sat down with a young man, around 24 years of age, and I asked if he was excited about Christmas. He began to share his story with me about how Christmas used to be a very sad time for him because he had no family and had been passed from home to home in Foster Care. But then he began to tell me that one year, just 2 weeks before Christmas, at twelve years of age he was adopted into a family of 5 people. He said that year he understood the joy of Christmas for the very first time. He said his gift was an awesome family. 

I shared with him that although my gift was given to me in September, that I always considered it to be an early Christmas gift. He said, "What was the gift?" I told him that I received the gift of eternal life, when I gave my life to JESUS. I asked if he was interested in knowing more about JESUS and he responded with, "I know a good bit about HIM, but I would like to get to know HIM the way you know HIM." It was there that he began to unwrap THE GIFT of eternal life, and that evening I wrote this song. I hope you enjoy the message in the song and I hope it reminds you of the day you were able to open your GIFT. THANK YOU GOD for “THE GIFT”, the greatest gift of all. 

Blessings my friends! (Thank you to each person that takes the time to share the testimony and the song. Together, GOD is using us to make a difference across this nation and beyond!)

The Gift – Johnathan Bond / HIS Choice Music / BMI 

THE GIFT (lyrics) 
Just a twelve year old orphan boy with nothing to call his own 
Christmas was another day he’d be left standing alone 
Suddenly he found a family to make his life complete 
It was then and there he quickly learned what this day would truly mean. 

He said, “The gift made the difference in me 
I was lost and so alone when GOD sent this gift to me 
I sing joy to the world oh holy night I sing praise to the new born king 
Because the gift made the difference in me.” 

There are those who will always say HIS birth was a fairy tale 
That HE was never sent to save this world if HE was HIS love has failed 
I wasn’t there at the manger when the baby opened his eyes, 
But in my heart I know that I believe because he changed my life. 

You see, “The gift made the difference in me 
I was lost and so alone when GOD sent this gift to me 
I sing joy to the world, oh holy night, I sing praise to the new born king 
Because the gift made the difference in me.”
