Blogmas Day 11: A Special Gift

Throughout my 25 years of life I have received many Christmas gifts- from toys to clothing. But there is one that sticks out to me the most.

Last Christmas, before I had to go into work, I received a special gift from my mother. That gift was a tie clip. Not just any type of tie clip, but a golden one with a pair of praying hands. As I beheld the clip, which reflected off the ceiling lights, I thought about how fitting a gift it was for my type of lifestyle. While I am a churchgoer, I don’t consider myself a saint, I do however consider myself a prayer warrior- one who prays often. Sometimes I wonder if I’m wearing God out with my constant requests and prayers that seem minor, such as asking Him to touch my lips when I speak and for protection on the road, even if it’s just to go around the corner to check on my grandma.

Every time I sport my tie clip, holding my tie together it reminds me that I should hold myself together, for God is just a prayer away. That sounded a tad by cliched, but that’s how I feel.

What is one of the best Christmas gifts you ever received?

By David Harris

I was born on January 31, 1992. I graduated from Austin Peay State University in December 2015 with a B.S. My major was Communications, with a concentration in Print & Web Journalism. My minor was English, with a concentration in Creative Writing. Writing is my passion. I’m a book lover. I prefer to to be called a Booklion rather than a bookworm. Why- lions are mightier.
My first love is Jesus Christ. I was raised in the Seventh-Day Adventist Church. No we are not a cult. We are Christians who worship on Saturday.
I have been stuttering since I was four, but through Christ I have persevered through it and will continue to do so. I’m not thing with Him.
Singing is another passion of mine. God blessed with me with the gift of song, which I am grateful for.
