Christmas Day

Hello, everyone. Today’s prayer came to me on Christmas morning, over the space of about four hours…

Christmas Day
* For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life (John 3:16; NIV).

Father,
People often ask me
Why I don’t celebrate Christmas
As others do;

But to me, 
Every day is Christmas Day,
Good Friday
And Easter Sunday –
All rolled into one;

For every time I remember your Son,
He is born again 
In my mind,
Bringing new hope;

And every time I sin,
He dies again 
In my heart,
Bringing new sorrow;

And every time I ask your forgiveness,
He rises again 
In my soul, 
Bringing new life.

So, Lord, to me, 
Every day is Christmas Day,
Good Friday
And Easter Sunday –
All rolled into one.
