To Everything A Season
The New Year is upon us, a time of reflection, a time of resolutions and of hope, a time of fresh starts and of celebration. Let us use this time to fill our hearts with the love of Christ, to proclaim our devotion to Him with every fiber of our being, to lay at his feet all our hopes and dreams, to begin each day afresh with a celebration of His blessings.
Bless the LORD, O my soul;
And all that is within me, bless His holy name!
Bless the LORD, O my soul,
And forget not all His benefits:
Who forgives all your iniquities,
Who heals all your diseases,
Who redeems your life from destruction,
Who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies,
Who satisfies your mouth with good things,
So that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.
Yes, let us remember His blessings and the depth of His love for us.
But He was wounded for our transgressions,
He was bruised for our iniquities;
The chastisement for our peace was upon Him,
And by His stripes we are healed.
Let us praise Him with carols that extend to the ends of the earth.
Before the gods I will sing praises to You.
I will worship toward Your holy temple,
And praise Your name
For Your lovingkindness and Your truth;
For You have magnified Your word above all Your name.
Let us proclaim to all the nations His glory and everlasting love.
All the kings of the earth shall praise You, O LORD,
When they hear the words of Your mouth.
Yes, they shall sing of the ways of the LORD,
For great is the glory of the LORD.
Let us take His message into all the world and let it burn with the brightness of the sun.
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
Happy New Year To All!
