Your Word

Psalm 119:105

Psalm 119:160
Proverbs 16:9
Proverbs 20:24
Habakkuk 3:17-19

“Your Word is a Lamp
For my feet.”
Keeping me with Your same beat.

“Your Word is a Light
On my path.”
As my future I grasp.

“For my feet
Your Word is a Lamp.”
Your Spirit in me encamp.

“On my path
Your Word is a Light.”
Taking me to new heights.

The New Year Calendar

The New Year Calendar

Jeremiah 29:11

Sitting there – the calendar on my laptop,
I look at the Old Year, past,
Filling in the New Year Calendar dates,
Leaving those memos that will last.

As I read the old entries,
Hard, and easy things, too –
Memories overflow my heart,
Both contented and blue.

Persons born, or now more in years,
Some have gone to the other side,
Most are still the same,
Some humble and some with pride.

Many blank areas ahead.
What will happen then?
I don’t know what things
Will be filled in them again.

I trust my God to replenish them,
As He guides me on the Way.
It’s not what I do,
But what He plans each day.

— Charles B. Mayes

It’s hard to believe that another year is here!  I prayerfully hope that each one of us, through the help of the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, start (in some cases), or continue to be disciples of Him this year!
