A few years ago, I posted a poem that I had written in January to start the New Year off.
Now don’t get me wrong, I am not a poet, but I do love to write poems.
In fact, I am in the middle of writing a few poems for our upcoming Valentine’s Day celebration at church.
I have written poems for the birth of our children and any occasion that seems/seemed to warrant a poem.
Some short…some long, depending on the circumstance.
So as I was going through a few older posts… I saw it and thought it was as true today as it was back then.
So if you will permit me on this Scripture Sunday…I would like to print it again….to renew myself.
Help me this day as I start anew
to look at others through the eyes of you.
Empty words, can be quickly spoken,
Promises made; Promises broken.
Help me to keep each vow that I make,
I need your strength for the steps I take.
Help me replace any irritation or pain,
by forgiving, forgetting, renewing again.
Though I know I’m not worthy to bask in your love,
I will always be thankful to my God above.
Thank you for loving me, my faults and all,
and for holding my hand each time that I fall.
I live by your grace, what wonderful news!
Your Son came to Earth and He paid my dues
Temptations I face, I’ll handle with care
As I start this new year kneeling in prayer.

Today at church, Psalm 63:4 was printed on our bulletin and I thought it was quite fitting to be the Scripture for today.
“I will praise you as long as I live, and in your name I will lift up my hands.”
Have a great and Blessed Day.
