This coming New Year we wish you Faith
Faith that this world cannot dampen or cool,
Faith in your dreams when the facts overrule,
Faith in the Word, though some folks call you fool.
This coming New Year we wish you Peace
Peace that the world’s cares cannot nullify,
Peace that is unswayed though all goes awry,
Peace that this world cannot beg, steal or buy.
This coming New Year we wish you Joy
Joy that is untouched by earth’s trials and fears,
Joy that is constant when sorrow appears,
Joy that is able to smile through its tears.
This coming New Year we wish you Love
Love that is steadfast, a love to abide,
Love that’s a refuge in which you can hide,
Love unconditional, unqualified.
This coming New Year we wish you Someone
One who’s the source of all mentioned above,
One who brings Faith on the wings of a dove,
One who’s synonymous with Peace, Joy and Love,
We wish you Jesus this coming new year!
New Year Prayer
As we look toward a brand New Year
Then gaze back to the past
We pause with mixed emotions
And memories that still last.
For this year has taught us lessons
We never thought we’d learn
To stand in the face of adversity
Seeking peace for which we yearn.
Each life a precious memory
Each face burned in our souls
The hero, the innocent, those who were lost
Were halves who made someone whole.
So we pray for this year to be peaceful
For strength to see us through
For each one who lost someone precious
And for all that is holy and true.
As we pray God’s eternal blessings
For our leaders and our land
We walk toward the future together
Heart to heart and hand in hand.
God has stored his “blessings” and deposited 365 days full of “love, faith, and happiness” for you… So, enjoy spending it in 2014.
“For no matter how many promises God has made, they are “Yes” in Christ. And so through him the “Amen” is spoken by us to the glory of God.” II Corinthians 1:20 NIV
