A New Year to Live for God!

A New Year to Live For God!


As this past year seems to have “come and gone…”

I wonder where in life, do I belong?


It seems like yesterday

that I was a young man…

   “I had the world in the palm of my hand.”


I had goals, ambitions and dreams.

I wanted to enjoy life and do a lot of things.


As this year has quickly went “goodbye..”.

I gaze up into the beauty of the stars in the sky.


Another new year and

another “resolution.”

I find myself with another problem

 with no “solution.”


I think about a God...  Who made

 all of this a possibility!

He’s offered to me love, hope

and tranquility!


I’m making a new commitment,

to God, January 1st.

No matter if things get better…

 Or things get worse…


I’m giving my life and everything to God above.

And ask him to bless our home

 with mercy and love.


I’m going to try to live for him the best way I know.

And seek his blessings wherever I go!


I’m going to give to God a love

 and a commitment.

It’s only in him where I’ll find true fulfillment!


There’s something important,

 that I’ll remember…

God is with me,

January thru December!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
