Facing Tomorrow  


As I face the New Year 2009

My heart cries out for renewal,

For strength and courage down the line.

Lord, restore, refresh, repair, refuel.


Like the psalmist I bring this plea to You

Even as life has worn me down.

My good intentions, I just blew.

Help me, Lord, to meet the day with no frown.


By faith my whole life is secure in You,

And I know Who holds the future.

Right now, I’ve troubles, quite a few

And I need Your Grace, my life to nurture.


My Lord, You’ve never failed me in the past

And I know You won’t fail me now.

Please give me courage that will last

As I wait on You – in my heart, I bow.

                                                    Psalm 46:1
