Happy New Year!

Written by Lisa DeVinney on . Posted in poetry

May all that lies before you draw
You closer to the Lord,
Until you find your heart and soul
Forever firmly moored
To that same Rock that’s been secure
Throughout the tests of time,
That rises far above the waves,
Atop the steepest climb.
And may you find a peaceful respite
‘Neath His sheltering wing,
A place to rest your weary soul,
And confidently cling
Tight to the One who calms the wind
And whispers, “Peace, be still,”
Not only to the churning waves,
But to your tossing will.
And in the year that lies ahead
May you know you are blessed
Because the Lord has promised He
Will give you what is best.
He cannot give you any less,
So trust His grace for you,
Not just today…next week…next month,
But for the whole year through.
“Do not remember the past events,
pay no attention to things of old.
Look, I am about to do something new;
even now it is coming. Do you not see it?
Indeed, I will make a way in the wilderness,
rivers in the desert.”
Isaiah 43:18-19 HCSB
