Just Another Year

Another Ho-Hum year having arrived

Hoping to do more than just survive


The previous year gifted forsaken feelings

Kneeling in prayer, seeking God’s healing


Another year, unknown opportunities wait

Seeking peace and joy, should be our fate


Many witnessed the festive Big Ball drop

Celebrating a New Year, let’s never stop


Some have written down New Year’s resolutions

Looking to erase misfortune, with grand solutions


As for me, still writing a sketchy, initial draft

Wondering if these words will light my path


Of course, many will remind us . . . a new decade!

Imagining these days, filling with exciting parades


Even as some fix to pursue permanent life changes

Remaining with the old ways, has worked for ages


Let’s at least, attempt to instill in each and every day

Submitting more precious sway, following God’s way


Not just another year, hallowed in God’s eyes

Lifting us up, like eagles ascending in the sky


Our Lord’s Word guides by His true light

Making each day of this year, His delight

From Revelations 22:5:  “And there will be no more night; they need no light of lamp or sun, for the Lord God will be their light, and they will reign forever and ever.”
