Christmas Rush

Rushing and pushing from home to work,
But there is one thing you must not shirk
Stopping to take time out of your busy day
To draw close to God and take time to pray.

Forget all the things that need to be done.
And worship, lifting praise to God’s Son.
Our Christian world has become a race in time.
Sometimes at Christians we need a STOP sign.

Our priorities become jumbled, we need to decide
If we’re too busy for Christ we’ll surely backslide.
The Spirit will call you to take time to pray,
But if you keep ignoring Him each busy day

Soon His voice is quiet and you are in a place
Where you are ashamed to look upon His face.
Don’t let the rush of shopping be all the worth.
Happier you will be focusing on Christ’s Birth.

Christmas Is Coming!

Christmas is coming, you can tell by the stores.
There are the lists of the “wants” and the “mores”.
New ideas from last year, better inventions to offer.
More things to entice you to open up your coffer.

Flyers and catalogues come flying through your door.
All of them crying buy more, and yes, you need more!
You look at the pictures and they are hard to ignore,

That is just what all the retailers are hoping will start,
“You see with your eyes and you want with your heart.”
Decorations are all up, listen, the music is blaring!
You see, this type of Christmas gets so very wearing!

The ringing of the ‘tills is what the sellers all need.
Now that expensive promoting has planted the seed.
Their profits are their concerns not your bank book.
Once you walk in the stores they have you on the hook.

You’ll find you are thinking more about abundance now.
And it flits into your mind like its planted somehow.
Could it be that Satan likes this early Christmas too?
Taking the thoughts away from Christ and onto you.

If he can but steal away a few lax brothers and see
If their wallets are out at each retail store, there will be
Little money left to send to missions or to help the poor.
He’s won again this year and his count is up once more!

It is his Master Plan to take Christ right out of Christmas,

That way everyone can join in and they just call it Xmas!
