A New Beginning
By Christine Hare Tate
They’ll blow their horns, shout and cheer
and usher in a brand new year…
Make resolutions they can’t keep,
stay up til dawn with no sleep,
and be so engaged in revelry
while rejecting the man from Galilee!
Year after year it will persist
while the word of God they’ll resist.
Putting it off may be too late
to enter thru the narrow gate!
I pray this year men will choose
to turn to Christ instead of booze,
and welcome in the coming year
inviting Jesus to draw near.
Celebrating their salvation
with grateful hearts and expectation;
anticipating what God will do
as they begin their lives anew!
