Birthday Message to My Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ
Dear CIB Reader, I am so thankful for the beautiful opportunity to be alive to witness the second to the last Sunday in 2019. Wow!!! It’s been an incredible journey of blessings and lessons. Without mincing words, I owe my victory to God through Jesus Christ.
To prepare our minds for Christmas Day, whích is just three days away, I would love to remind you of the importance of saying the right wishes this season. Christ is the Reason for the Season and must not be erased from His “mass”. Hence, the need to wish people “Merry Christmas”(✔)and not “Merry Xmas” (❎) as there is no correlation of any sort between Christ and the Letter ‘X’. I am really glad you have learned that😊
I also wrote a letter to my Lord Jesus Christ and decided to share with you. Please, enjoy the read.
“BIRTHDAY NOTE TO MY LORD AND SAVIOUR JESUS CHRIST”
Dear Lord Jesus,
I am really excited to write you this birthday note because it’s my first time. Well, who would blame me for being this excited and having the rare privilege to write this piece to the King of My Soul?
Writing about anything or anyone comes naturally for me but with you, it is a different situation altogether. I am at battle with words because I do not know what to start with. Please, kindly bear with me, I am just overwhelmed by your personality. Thank you for understanding😊
I was born into a Christian family but that didn’t guarantee my knowledge of you. As I grew older, I connected with you on a personal note and I have had no regrets ever since. Sadly, I have hurt you countless times but surprisingly, your love has not failed for a second. Each new day I witness is a reminder of how gracious you are Oh Lord. I have lost close friends and relatives who are better than me to the cold hands of death but I am marveled that you are committed to having me alive in the Land of the Living in good health and great prosperity despite my flaws. Because of this kind gesture in particular, I deeply appreciate you King Jesus.
For me, I think Christmas marks the beginning of God’s unending love for mankind and you are love that knows no end. Reading the accounts of your birth by St. Matthew and Physician Luke, one thing stood out for me and that is the fact that you have always been accessible. The rich wise men from the East and the lowly shepherds from the field were the first to get information of the birth of the Messiah from the angels. Imagine if you were born in the King’s palace, I am certain, 100%, that the shepherds wouldn’t have bothered leaving their sheep that beautiful night.
Saying you are amazing is just stating the obvious. Now I know why God the Father invested all authority in you. Jesus, you were there at the beginning of time with God, all things were made through you and without you was not anything made that was made yet you knew you would be first welcomed by animals in a manger (not even an inn) on your trip to the world as human and you did not complain. Father, I raise my hands in adoration, your humility is indescribable!
Usually, birthdays come with birthday wishes but look at me my Love, you own the earth and all that is in it so do I say God bless you when you are God’s blessing? Do I say you will live long when there is no end to you or wish you good health when it is by your stripes I am healed? The best wish would be to say, “Thank you Jesus” my Dearly Beloved Father of Grace, my Glory, the Lifter of My Head, my Shield, Restorer, Deliverer, Way Maker, my Pride, my Goodness, my Supplier, my Source, my Best Friend, my Confidence and Confidant, my Peace, my Joy, my Rock, my Help in ages past and my Hope for years to come, my Infectious Happiness, my Defender, my Pillar, my life’s Director, my new Song, my Majestic Miracle, my Favour and my silent Disciplinarian.
Thank you so much for having me in mind when you decided to leave the throne to come to the world;
Thank you for choosing me to serve you;
Thank you for the relationship we share:
Thank you for loving me even in my imperfections;
Thank you for being present at all the meetings I schedule with you just to pour out my heart when I am hurt;
Thank you because you have never been tired of listening to me, sometimes what I say makes no sense but you have never bothered or judged me;
Thank you for being patient indeed with me. At times when I give up on myself, you have a way of reminding me that you still care so who am I not to be patient with others?;
Thank you for always reassuring me of how beautiful I am and how I should never stop pushing no matter what comes my way because I am the Light of the World and the Salt of the Earth;
Thank you for always breaking protocols for my sake;
Thank you for the way you correct me whenever I am wrong;
Thank you for the food, shelter, clothing, family, friends, wisdom, knowledge, understanding you have provided freely;
Thank you so much for my career path and destiny;
Thank you because I am Heaven Bound.
I am indebted to you till the end of time. I sincerely wish that as you pour your blessings this Christmas, I will be a partaker so that through me the world will know that You Reign. I hope to be one of the reasons you smile at all times. Help me fulfill your purpose in my life.
I know I am one of your naughty children but you know I love you immensely and I am trying so hard to have you declare to nations that you are proud of me.
Please, keep revealing yourself to every child of yours. We will get better through your grace- Amen.
Happy Birthday Once Again my Personal Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ”.
Merry Christmas to you and yours!
