We all consider New Year as an opportunity for a fresh start
and God has a plan for a similar kind of recovery from the past
it involves hearing from Him
and turning away from selfish desires and facing our fears
and turning toward Him
to follow closely after our loving heavenly Father
God's plan is for hope and a future...
...through the death for our sins, and burial and resurrection
of the grown Christmas-baby Jesus, the Christ;
Just the way God said it would happen beforehand.

"God Knows" by Minnie Louise Haskins here
