Lord of Love is Here
Refocus as we move into this New Year;
Seek His way and to His promises give ear.
Ridding our lives of the all the fuss,
Surrendering all to God and in Him trust.
For some, as time passed this last year,
Their hearts and lives became filled with fear.
They were tossed about like a reed,
Looking this way and that to fill their need.
Each day in Christ we are born anew;
Following His path we’ll make it through.
As this year comes to a close for us,
We’re reminded it is in Him we can trust.
Meditate on His word, read and hear;
Seek the Lord and you’ll find Jesus near.
In you the Holy Spirit pants the seed,
When on God’s promises you feed.
With opened heart, look to the New Year;
Open your heart, for the Lord of love is here.
