It is a new year, a fresh start, a chance to begin again. Like writing on a clean page in a just-purchased notebook.
Through the years I’ve listed a hundred goals to accomplish. I’ve made categories and carefully organized each one. I planned to accomplish each and every one.
In the spiritual category, I wanted to put God first in my life. It was the right thing to do. Seek ye first and all that.
Surrender is not my strong suit though my heart wants His will and His way. Truly it does. But failure has found me too many times.
While I say I want Jesus to lead and me to follow, for Him to be the King on the throne of my heart, I don’t always live it out exactly like that.
He should be the Maestro of the orchestra of my life, yet sometimes I’ve barely given Him an instrument to play.
And the melody quickly goes off-key.
Here it is another year, and so I pray this prayer once more:
O God of the second chance and new beginnings, it’s me again.
