I am your next chance at the art of living.
I am your opportunity to practice what you have learned
about life during the last twelve months.
All that you sought and didn’t find is hidden in me,
waiting for you to search it out with more determination.
All the good that you tried for and didn’t achieve is mine
to grant when you have fewer conflicting desires.
All that you dreamed but didn’t dare to do,
all that you hoped but did not will,
all the faith that you claimed but did not have –
these slumber lightly, waiting to be awakened by
the touch of a strong purpose.
I am your opportunity to renew your allegiance
to Him who said, “Behold, I make all things new.”
I am the new year.
