New Year

A new year lies before us…

What will we do with it?


Will we live a lifestyle of service?

Will we live a life of surrender?

Will we choose to trust God even when we don’t understand why?


A chapter in your life is waiting to be written.

The pages are blank, white, unspoiled.


What will be on them when this year has past?


Well it be a record of advancement in our Christian lives?

Will it be a story to be unashamed of?


The choice is ours.


I was regretting the past and fearing the future.

Suddenly my Lord was speaking:

My name is “I AM” He paused, I waited, He continued:

‘When you live in the past with its mistakes and regrets, It is hard.
I am not there. My name is not I was.

When you live in the future with its problems and fears, It is hard.
I am not there. My name is not I will be.

When you live in this moment, It is not hard,
I am here. My name is “I AM.”
