When you’ve trusted Jesus and walked his way
When you’ve felt his hand lead you day by day
But your steps now take you another way,
When you’ve made your plans and they’ve gone awry
When you’ve tried your best and there’s no more try
When you’ve failed yourself and you don’t know why,
When you’ve told your friends what you plan to do
When you’ve trusted them and they didn’t come through
And now you’re all alone and it’s up to you,
When you’ve failed your kids and they’re grown and gone
When you’ve done your best but it’s turned out wrong
And now your grandchildren have come along,
When you’ve prayed to God so you’ll know his will
When you’ve prayed and prayed and you don’t know still
When you want to stop cause you’ve had your fill,
When you think you’re finished and want to quit
When you’ve bottomed out in life’s deepest pit
When you’ve tried and tried to get out of it,
When the year has been long and successes few
When December comes and you’re feeling blue
God gives a January just for you,
Starting over means Victories Won
Starting over means A Race Well Run
Starting over means The Lord’s Will Done
We need not just sit there … START OVER.
Starting over is one thing I try to do every day, but especially on Sundays. It's my day for Rest and Relaxation, Renewal and Refreshment. It's the day I set aside for Restoration and Rest. Without it I sure wouldn't be much good for the week ahead.
Thankfully we all get a chance to start over. Each new day gives us a fresh beginning. Every day is different and I sure wouldn't want to try and predict what it could bring either. As long as you're going through this day, you might as well experience it in the best way you can.
Our greatest glory is not in never failing, but in rising up every time we fail
Ralph Waldo Emerson
As always you all are in my thoughts and prayers.
