Giving Up the Old
There is a new road that stretches in front of me.
As I began to take the first step I look behind me.
What if with the first step on this new road
I lose things that are behind on the old road?
What if I give up something that I may need along the way?
What if there is something back there I will miss someday?
Am I going to be strong enough to make it down this road on my own?
Am I going to have others stepping with me, or will I step all alone?
I look in front of me and see hope and promise shining brightly.
I look behind me and see memories began to fade slightly.
I look in front and see new beginnings waiting to begin.
I look behind and see unhappy circumstances growing dim.
It seems to me on this journey down this timely road I am on,
This New Year is ready for the taking and the old year is ready to be gone.
Promises and hopes of the new outweigh old things I grudgingly hold on to.
It is time to take a step of faith and do all new things I need to do.
As I journey into this New Year I know I will never be alone.
When I look back at the old year that is now gone,
I know Jesus was with me then, helping me to stand.
I know He guides me through all days, He always holds my hand.
