Voice is the prompt word for day 5 #womderfulladvent

A voice of one calling: “In the wilderness prepare the way for the LORD; make straight in the desert a highway for our God.

Isaiah 40:3
A voice of one calling in the desert
John such a part of the Christmas story
Almost forgotten

God kept Gabriel busy that year
Before he visited Mary
Gabriel entered the inner sanctuary
Speaking to Zechariah
To say he and his wife
Would have their long awaited child

Zechariah did not believe
So his voice taken away
Not stolen but gone
A lesson learnt hard for it was not until
Zechariah wrote John's name on his tablet
Setting him free in praise

How many of us relate to disbelief
And feel our voices muffled
Landing on deaf ears never to be heard

This Christmas keep those voices tuned
To sing our saviours praise
Celebrating his birth
The wonder of Christmas day
