Isaiah 43:17-18 – “Do not remember the former things, Nor consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a new thing, Now it shall spring forth; Shall you not know it?
Lord as into this new year I step
My heart is heavy, my feet are cold.
I, Lord, tend to worry and to mope
Often finding it difficult to hope.
And yet, Lord as I turn and look back
Over the year I have just left behind
I remember your presence ever near
Faithfully through times of joy and tear.
Furthermore, this Lord for sure I know
You our Sovereign Lord, you alone
The Grand Weaver, you remain in control, absolutely
Weaving a tapestry of breath-taking beauty.
And so Lord, as into this new year I step,
With my questions, fears and doubts
I choose to trust and, on this truth, I stand
That you hold my world in your loving hand.
