A New Year's Resolution

A New Year’s Resolution


Perhaps you’re going to make a new year’s resolution?

You have a situation, and want a solution!


There may have been many things that you’ve tried.

Many promise an answer.  But it’s really a lie!


You may have tried things that don’t really “fit.”

You may feel like life has given you “the slip?”


You may have past resolutions, but aren’t concerned.

Life may have dealt you “the wrong turn?”


There’s someone I know who can turn it all around!

He can pick you up, when things come “crashing down!”


No matter how many promises you’ve made in the past.

He gives an abundant life that will always last!


His name is Jesus!  He brings peace and fulfillment!

And brings true love and a Godly enjoyment!


Won’t you make a promise and give God your attention?

And trust HIM to give you a new direction?


No matter the good and bad this new year will bring!

God is still God!  And can take care of everything!


Simply give him your life, and allow him to lead!

He is God!  And can supply your every need!


Jesus is still the same Jesus! Throughout the years!

He can take away your worries

 And all of your fears!


A resolution to serve him is the best one to make!

Won’t you do it now…  Before it’s too late?

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!
