All Things Are Possible

  
 
 
 
 
  
 You are worthy of my trust, my complete trust.
 You are worthy of my confidence, my complete confidence.
 I have nothing, nothing I can give;
 but I ask you today, this day, please help me to live.
  
 Not in my former ways,
  trusting no one-least of all my self
 Not in what I can’t or can do 
 based on poverty or wealth.
  
 Yet, in humble submission to what I can’t see
 for only you comprehend all I can be.
  
 I stumble too often on what others say
 Too often satisfied with having my own way
 Both of us know where these struggles lead
 so more of you, less of me is what I do plead.
  
 All things are possible with you I believe,
 beyond what my mind can fully conceive.
  
 You’ve never deceived your chosen ones,
 by grace and faithfulness, each battle’s been won-
 Let me continue this race, wholly trusting your Son,
 not in others nor self, but in what you have done,

 not in others, myself- only in what you have done.

Dear New Year

Dear New Year,

I know some people call you Happy, but I think that is rather presumptuous. Not that I am against you being happy, I actually think that is not a bad start. But the fact is, it seems to set the stage for some unrealistic expectations, at least from where I’m standing. I wonder if you introduced yourself to me, what you’d prefer to be called? Are you forthcoming in this way? I mean, will you come out and call a spade a spade. How exactly does one address a New Year?
