New Year Prayer

He who was seated on the throne said, “I am making everything new!” Then he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.” Revelation 21:5

(Send as an Inspirational Christian New Years eCard)

Snowflakes falling,

Wide fields of white,

A wintry world,

Behold the sight:


Fields once green

Now covered with snow,

Blankets of white

Where flowers did grow.


Dark are the days,

Gray are the skies,

Barren are the trees

Before my eyes.


A year is ending,

A new year awaits,

I think of You, Jesus,

Behind Heavenly gates.


Surely all things

You will make new:

The fields, the flowers,

The barren trees too.


My life also

You renew with love,

While You prepare treasures

In Heaven above.


Rejoice, then, my heart,

When snowy blankets I see;

Long days of Sonshine

Are mine in eternity.


Dark days cannot sadden,

Nor cold bring sorrow,

For endless Son-filled days

Await tomorrow.


In the year ahead

May I be more like You;

Take my heart, my mind,

My entire life too.


Sweet renewal I find

When all to You I give;

So for You, my Jesus,

I choose to live.


In my heart

Melt the blankets of snow;

Allow the flame of love

In my heart to grow.


Plant flowers of virtue,

Trees of grace too;

Shine in my soul

With light pure and true.


And as snowflakes falling,

Make my soul white;

You make all things new

In Your perfect Sonlight.

Praise God for making all things new in His perfect love and light.
