Happy New Year 2012...

New Year's Day in 2012.

A new year has begun.
A new sun has risen.
A bright one.
A hopeful one.

No matter how glorious and joyous the previous year may have been,
No matter how many pains and sorrows it may have given,
The old one should be sent away.
That should be floated away.

The past is a cancelled check that is useless.
The future is an undue promissory note that cannot be used now.
The present is cash on hand that is priceless
That is available for use here and now.

No matter how promising the new year may look,
No matter how uncertain it may look,
No one and nothing can be more promising than Jesus,
No one and nothing can be more certain than Jesus.

On this first day of 2012,
On a strong promise of hope in Jesus I stand
On a clear certainty of rest in Jesus I find
On  this first day of 2012.

On this first day of 2012.
