A New Year’s Plan

Happy New Year to each and every one of you.

I pray that you are blessed with a healthy, prosperous, content and thankful New Year!

A New Year’s Plan

I tried to think of a clever new phrase—
A slogan to inspire the next 365 days,
A motto to live by this coming new year,
But the catchy words fell flat to my ear.
And then I heard His still small voice
Saying, “Consider this simple, daily choice:
With each new dawn and close of day
Make new your resolve to trust and obey.”

“Don’t look back caught in regret
Or dwell on the sorrow of dreams unmet;
Don’t stare forward anchored by fear,
No, live in this moment, for I am here.”

“I am all you need. Everything. I Am.
You are held secure by my strong hand.
Give me this one thing—your all in all;
Into my grace, let yourself fall.”

So, at last I’m ready; I see the way.
It’s to daily follow, trust, and obey.
I enter the new year armed with a plan,
To give him my everything. All that I am.

–Mary Fairchild
