Weekend Words & Sunday Stanzas – 01/05/2014
Resolve to discover wisdom, and find some wisdom at Proverbial Thought!
As I have discussed, I am not big on making New Year’s resolutions. I much prefer setting goals and meeting them.
That being said, here is today’s poem, inspired by this passage:
When the days drew near for him to be taken up, he set his face to go to Jerusalem.
Luke 9:51, ESV
a new year has come around once again
and i see where i have fallen short
people are setting new resolutions
that last two weeks or one or two more
these resolutions do not make much sense
if they can barely get past the start
as Jesus resolutely turned His face
toward Jerusalem where He would die
i resolutely declare every day
i shall turn my face to His sacrifice
because Jesus resolved to take my place
giving my life to Him is worth the price
