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.”
