The Gift Exchange

As the lights were dimmed
A hush came over the crowd
In the quiet a question was posed
What will you give Jesus for Christmas?

I knew in an instant
As his face came to my mind
Our relationship broken and strained
I would present this to my Lord

A beautifully wrapped package
Rested in my hand
Held close to my heart
Then raised to the Lord

In an instant my burden was lifted
Stress I had felt melted away
Once again my mind was focused
Aware of the presence of the Lord

How did this gift exchange happened
I will never fully know
As I presented my gift to the Lord
His peace filled my soul
