The Promise

The Newborn King arrived just as prophecy did say
His mother laid the Sacred One upon the cattle’s hay
As much as Mary longed to hold her newborn Son
she placed Him in a manger as a sign for everyone

 A Bundle of Joy born on Christmas Day so many years ago

graciously came from Heaven to save our weary souls

He is Jesus, the Messiah, the Savior long foretold

the Promise who fulfills the prophecies of old

 

The Newborn King arrived just as prophecy did say

His mother laid the Sacred One upon the cattle’s hay

As much as Mary longed to hold her newborn Son

she placed Him in a manger as a sign for everyone

 

As Passover lambs were swaddled and laid in a manger bed

it’s through Jesus, the Sacrificial Lamb, that we’re forever fed

It’s through this Gift of Life, Heaven’s finest wheat

that life is truly found as His precious blood redeems

 

This unblemished Lamb and first-born male

is the spotless sacrifice who would take our nails

At birth and at death, wrapped in cloth as He lay

this holy Babe was born, to die, to take our stains

 

Jesus, the Messiah—The Savior long foretold

the Promise who fulfills the prophecies of old

Emmanuel, Prince of Peace, there is none like You

You are the Promise—The Promise come true!

 

But you, O Bethlehem Ephrathah, are only a small village among all the people of Judah. Yet a ruler of Israel, whose origins are in the distant past, will come from you on my behalf. 

Micah 5:2

For a child is born to us, a son is given to us. The government will rest on his shoulders. And he will be called: Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. 

Isaiah 9:6

About the Author

Debbie always had a desire to write a book, but didn’t have a clue as to what the content could be. Children’s books and short stories piqued her interest most. She had dabbled with writing family-oriented poems, off and on over the years, but became overwhelmed with a hunger to write about God and His love in her late fifties. She started seeing God everywhere she looked whether it was in a deck of cards, movie titles, nursery rhymes, popular sayings, flower petals, or a baseball game. She finally realized that prophecy was being fulfilled when one of her sons told her that her poetry glorified God and was meant to be shared. The Lord’s words from an encounter in 2011 immediately returned to her. She had found her way to speak about God just like He told her she would. Debbie is sharing her poetry in hopes that it will nourish and strengthen souls for the Kingdom of God. She refers to her poetic style as floetry, as it is the move of the Holy Spirit flowing from her heart to another. Her desire to flood the prisons with her book is due to God’s belief in her, and in her belief that no one can cast the first stone, but that everyone can help someone who is in desperate need of a Savior.
