Dear, Sweet Little Boy. . .Did You Know


So I was reading the book of Matthew today, and I had so many questions...

Dear child,
Did You Know?
When they came from strange lands bringing gifts,
did You know?
When the shepherds came to worship,
did You know?
When Your parents fled by night,
did You know?
As Rachel wept for her children,
did You know?
When God called You out of Egypt,
did You know?
As the voice called in the desert preparing the way,
did You know?
As You called them from the sea,
did You know?
As Your great light dawned for all to see,
did You know?
As You healed the crowds from Jordan,
did You know?
As they marvelled at Your teachings,
did You know?
As she touched the hem of Your garment,
did You know?
As you woke them from eternal sleep,
did You know?
When You prayed in the garden,
did You know?
When he betrayed You with a kiss on the cheek,
did You know?
As they slapped You in the face,
did You know,
As You bled from their whip,
did You know?
As they nailed Your hands and feet,
did You know?
When they hung You on the tree,
did You know,
As Your body breathed its last,
did You know?
When they pierced Your heart,
did You know?
As they laid You in the tomb,
did You know?
Did You know me?

The response? Jeremiah 1:5 “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.”
