A New Year’s Prayer

With a New Year on our calendar, our great God dwells not in time.
His work in us comes from His throne, through His blessed will divine.

Since every day is new to God – His mercies are daily shown,
we need not look to dates themselves, but to the eternal “I Am” alone.

There is no timeline we can access, for the Lord exceeds in all.
He expects that we will look to Him and at Jesus’ feet we’ll fall.

So whenever you are tempted to detail God’s varied plan this way,
just recall that God may work through time, but it’s not our hope and stay.
