The Day After Christmas

The day has quickly past
The gifts are all unwrapped
The wrappings have been swiftly thrown away
The Christmas feast is done
Guests have all gone home
Now you rest from such a busy day

Your mind goes drifting back
To the year that has just past
You write down all the wonderful events
Then you start to plan
For the year that is at hand
Hoping to achieve the very best

You start to make a list
Of thinks that you would wish
Would come true in the coming year
Perhaps this year would be
A good year to agree
A closer walk with God would be so dear

Take more time to pray
Read the word each day
Listen for the sound of His sweet voice
Help those who have needs
Be a friend indeed
Always strive to make the righteous choice

Tell God all your fears
Let Him dry your tears
He will fill your heart with His sweet peace
Bring your needs to Him
And you will always win
All your doubts and worry He’ll release

With these resolutions
We know that the conclusion
Will open up a year that’s full of life
So please take time to pray
That you would find a way
To have a closer walk with Jesus Christ

Share The Light

There’s a feeling in the air
That’s hard to explain
It always comes this time of year
I feel I should dare
To make a life change
And I’m hopeful the change will endure

Call it a hunch or dream
Or resolution
My mind is determined to try
‘Cause right now it seems
I shouldn’t be done
Growing in my spirit life

Starting right now I’ll try
To rid all distractions
And live more in tune with Christ
I Him I’ll abide
With daily devotions
And pray for the lost to gain life

But more than anything
I’ll be determined
To praise Him with all of my might
I’ll lift my voice and sing
From deep down within
I’ll worship Him and share His light.

 

 

In response to the daily prompt Hopeful

More Time

This year has past
A new is upon us
What will it bring
Good things, I trust

More time with God
Giving Him praises
Lifting my heart
Accepting His graces

More time in prayer
Lifting my neighbors
Hoping to see
Them come the Father

More time to love
Those who are hurting
Giving them hope
That their hurt is fleeing

More time to seek
His wisdom and passion
That I might proclaim
His words to the nation

More time to praise
My wonderful Savior
Lifting my voice
To worship my Lord

Yes, this year will bring
A new fire within me
To honor the name
Of Jesus my Lord
