"GIFTS" BY MARK BOGGAN INSPIRED BY GOD

"GIFTS"
I SAW A CHILD WHO COULD NOT SEE

"DEAR LORD" I CRIED! WHY SHOULD THIS BE

NEVER TO LOOK ON THE FACE OF LOVE

OR THE SUN, TREES OR THE STARS ABOVE

ALWAYS TO WALK IN ETERNAL NIGHT

NEVER TO KNOW THE COMFORT OF LIGHT

I SAW A CHILD WHO NO STEP COULD SHE TAKE

"DEAR LORD" I CRIED! MY HEART DOES ACHE

NEVER TO STAND UP STRAIGHT OR TALL

THIS CHILD, THOUGH SHE TRIES, CAN ONLY FALL

WHAT DID SHE DO TO BE MADE THIS WAY

IT IS EVERY CHILDS RIGHT TO RUN AND PLAY

I SAW A CHILD WHO COULD SPEAK NO WORDS

ISN'T THIS CRUEL? I ASKED MY LORD

AND HE CAN NOT HEAR ON TOP OF IT ALL

NEVER TO HEAR HIS MOTHERS CALL

NEVER TO SPEAK, NEVER TO HEAR

I TURNED MY FACE TO HIDE MY TEARS

THEN SPOKE A VOICE THROUGH MY HEART TO ME. "THESE ARE THE GIFTS, I GIVE TO THEE.

THE BLIND LITTLE CHILD WILL TAKE YOUR HAND. AND LEAD YOU THROUGH THIS WEARY LAND.
HE'LL SHOW YOU WONDERS BEYOND COMPARE. AND BEAUTY THAT YOU NEVER KNEW WERE THERE.
AND THE LITTLE GIRL SO CRIPPLE AND LAME,
HAS COURAGE MY SON THAT WOULD PUT YOURS TO SHAME. SHE'LL TEACH YOU TO WALK, IF YOU'LL HOLD HER HAND. TO WALK UPRIGHT WITH YOUR FELLOW MAN.

THE LITTLE ONE WHO'S TOUNGE COULD NOT SPEAK, WILL TEACH YOU THE ELOQUENCE OF TEARS ON A CHEEK. YOU WILL LEARN THE HEART CAN WHOLE VOLUMES TELL. IF IT IS WARMED WITH LOVE AND TENDER CARE.

PERHAPS YOUR MIND'S CLOSED, BUT YOU HOLD THE KEY. WHEN YOU OPEN TO THEM, YOU OPEN TO ME."

DEAR LORD I CRIED I HUMBLY THANK THEE

I WILL LIVE FOR THESE CHILDREN, WHOM ARE YOUR GIFTS TO ME

Mark, that was UNBELIEVABLE! I have tears falling after reading your posts! You have a gift of writing.

Through times of my recent despair, God is the only reason I kept my sanity. Please pray as I endure more turmoil. But it does bless my soul that these writings touch people. I am a helper in a spritual realm. So i feel at least I am doing my job.
God Bless everyone.

Bible thump away. The scripture has never hurt anyone and leaves them better than it finds them. Thump! Thump! Thump!

I AM BLESSED DAILY WHEN HIS WRITINGS TOUCH PEOPLE'S HEART. I AM HUMBLE TO MY LORD. FOR HIS LOVE IS OVERWHELMING. JUST ALLOW YOURSELF TO BE A TOOL. HE CAN DO AMAZING THINGS IN YOUR LIFE. IF YOUR SICK, PRAY AND BELIEVE YOUR ARE HEALED. IF YOU ARE DOWN, HE IS THE ONLY ONE WILL HOLD YOUR HAND AND LOVE YOU TRULY. I DON'T WANT TO BIBLE THUMP HERE, BUT I CAN HONESTLY SAY, I AM NOTHING WITHOUT GOD. IT IS A HAPPINESS I WOULD HAVE NEVER KNOWN. AND IF YOU ARE READING THIS AND DON'T KNOW WHAT I AM TALKING ABOUT, SEND ME A PRAYER REQUEST. I WILL IMMEDIATELY PRAY THAT GOD WORKS MIRICLES IN YOUR LIFE. I JUST NEED A FIRST NAME. GOD KNOWS WHO YOU ARE. YOU CAN EVEN CALL. 205-938-0588. WE WILL PRAY OVER THE PHONE. GOD LOVES YOU AND SO DO I.
IN HIS SERVICE

Absolutely. It is to honor God. Give him the Glory and praise. I was out of body when I wrote this. Or should I say, God wrote it.
