"Before us lies

A new year....

... like an unopened package

... like an unread book,

... like an untrod pathway.

It is new,

and it lies in our hands

to use

to His glory

or for our pleasure.

God has placed it there;

and we are



to Him for how we use it.

We may choose whether we will

waste its minutes

or fill them in His service.

But when it is gone

it will never return again;

we can never recall it,

It will fade on into the past;


.... let us cherish this gift

..... let us use this year to

shape our lives for His glory.

Let us seek to be perfect

in Him.
