Pondering Heart . . . What He Gave Up For Me

Dear Holy Friends,
    For some Christmas will be a wonderful time. For others not so much. For some their tree will be overflowing with gifts. For others not so much. For some this holiday is the magic time of year. For others not so much. Today my prayer is that we all find a moment to remember what Jesus gave up for us. I think in the remembering, we find our 'not so muches' aren't that much, after all.
In His Grip, Chandra
What He Gave Up For Me

He traded a throne for a manger

Angel songs for a donkey bay

Royal position for poverty

Glory for a bed of hay


Adoration for submission

Worship for a carpenter's life

Heaven for a fallen earth

Peace for pain and strife.


That night in Bethlehem

A hay filled manger bed

Royalty became one of us

Condemnation became salvation instead.
