LORD, I resolve to live more fully in ,
each day brighter, more purposeful,
full of faith and not of fear.
Give me courage to accept life’s adventures
and faith to avoid second guesses.
Grant me strength to say YES
to the life you want me to live.
Help me to hope in your promises.
If you are with me, who can be against me?
Teach me to appreciate each day
as a wonderful gift from you.
This is the day and the year that the Lord has made.
Let us rejoice and be glad in !
