Have you made the most important decision of your life? Where will you spend Eternity? To make heaven is as simple as ABC- Accept you are a sinner, Believe that Jesus died for your sin and Confess HE is Lord.

"I am the New Year"

Happy New Year everyone!!!! 2008 is your year of new birth. The Lord says "Forget the things of the past, I want to do a new thing in your life." (Isaiah 43-18-19). Let go and Let God!!!

By the way, a friend sent me this new year poem that I will like to share with you. I hope it blesses you as it did me.


I Am The New Year
Author Unknown Life

I am the New Year.
I am an unspoiled page in your book of time.
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.


  1. Hey Aloted,
    Spread the word, The Naija Bloggers Party has been fixed
    Date: Saturday, 5th Jan
    Time: 4pm
    Venue: No 10, 14 Saka Tinubu Street, Victoria Island, Lagos.

    Anon bloggers are welcome, no need to reveal who you are. Holla at me here if you need more information. Please accept my apologies for the (very) short notice.

  2. This poem is beautiful and holds the promise of hope. I wish they had named it something like I AM THE NEW SECOND/MINUTE/HOUR/DAY/WEEK/MONTH. We get a clean slate everytime we want it.

    Happy New Year!

  3. That's a beautiful poem - very inspiring. It's got me all fired up... have a wonderful 2008 too!

    PS I'm a bad girl I know, still haven't done the meme - the reason is that I've done it twice before and can't think of more weird things! But please pop over to my blog to find out how you can participate in a carnival... God bless.

  4. It's a very nice piece! Speaks of hope and newness, i love it! I agree with in my head, there's always a clean slate

  5. Whoa! how profound; "I am the new year."
    ...and He whispered; "I have added to your joy this new year."
    Happy New Year
