A New Year's Plan
by: Mary Fairchild I tried to think of a clever new phrase A slogan to inspire the next 365 days, A motto to live by this coming new year, But the catchy words fell flat to my ear. And then I heard His still small voice Saying, "Consider this simple, daily choice: With each new dawn and close of day Make new your resolve to trust and obey." "Don't look back caught in regret Or dwell on the sorrow of dreams unmet; Don't stare forward anchored by fear, No, live in this moment, for I am here." "I am all you need. Everything. I Am. You are held secure by my strong hand. Give me this one thing your all in all; Into my grace, let yourself fall." So, at last I'm ready; I see the way. It's to daily follow, trust, and obey. I enter the new year armed with a plan, To give him my everything. All that I am.

Month 4, Week 4 December 30th, 2012

Ecclesiastes 3:11
He has made everything appropriate in its time. He has also set eternity in their heart, yet so that man will not find out the work which God has done from the beginning even to the end.

Hebrews 12:11
Our fathers disciplined us for a little while as they thought best; but God disciplines us for our good, that we may share in his holiness. No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it.

Lamentations 3:22-24
The unfailing love of the Lord never ends! By his mercies we have been kept from complete destruction. Great is his faithfulness; his mercies begin afresh each day. I say to myself, "The Lord is my inheritance; therefore, I will hope in him! Lamentations 3:22-24 The unfailing love of the Lord never ends! By his mercies we have been kept from complete destruction. Great is his faithfulness; his mercies begin afresh each day. I say to myself, "The Lord is my inheritance; therefore, I will hope in him!"

Psalm 37:7
Rest in the Lord and wait patiently for Him; Do not fret because of him who prospers in his way, because of the man who carries out wicked schemes.

New Years Poem
by: Mary Fairchild Instead of making a New Year's resolution, Consider committing to a biblical solution. Your promises are easily broken, Empty words, though earnestly spoken. But God's Word transforms the soul, By His Holy Spirit making you whole. As you spend time alone with Him, He will change you from within.

Philippians 3:13-14
Brethren, I do not regard myself as having laid hold of it yet; but one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead. I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
