Thought for January
What Will We Do With This Year That’s So New?
As we start a new year untouched and unmarred, Unblemished and flawless, unscratched and unscarred,
May we try to do better and accomplish much more, And be kinder and wiser than in the year gone before —
Let us wipe our slates clean and start over again, For God gives this privilege to all sincere men
Who will humbly admit they have failed many ways But are willing to try and improve these “new days,”
And counting on Him to refresh and renew Their courage and faith when things go wrong
And the way seems dark and the road touch and long. What will we do with this year that’s so new?
The choice is yours and mine to renew.
