Refreshing and inspirational
Are new beginnings indeed;
A hope sealed with a promise
Like a well-nourished seed.
A seed that grows and will transform
As old ways are left behind,
When the fountain in our soul
Much rest and peace will find.
When love and faith are sown
In the soil of our heart,
There’s a hope that is produced
With a welcomed brand new start.
God’s mercies are new every morning
And although valleys may be deep,
He comforts and protects us
And His promises He keeps.
He lifts us from the miry clay
As we place our trust in Him,
Where faithfulness and steadfastness
Brings deliverance within.
As our old nature is replaced
And where His Spirt will abide,
There’s the process of sanctification
As our carnal ways will die.
Each year begins with hope
As we explore with a renewed vision;
As we climb new mountains and terrain too
Where resilience marks every mission.
New beginnings are always fresh
In every aspect of our lives,
With an attitude of gratitude
When these beginnings do arrive.
God bless us and refresh us
As He restores and makes things new,
As we welcome this new year
With a love and faith that’s true.
