Poem: If Only You Would Seek

As I was thinking about loved ones, the state of the world, life, death, and the upcoming new year, these words came to me.


Another year, so full of grace

Forgiveness, love, and peace

Of gifts that come from God the Father 

And sent for you to keep

If only you would seek.


Another year of joyful triumph

And sudden grim defeat

You smile, embrace, you cry and tremble

The world and all it brings

If only you would seek.


Another year, come be His child

Beloved of the King

A year that flows with promises

And blessings you will reap

If only you would seek.


Another year, could be your last

And then eternity

There will only be one question

What will your answer be?

If only you would seek.


Another year to share with friends

With loving family

But if your heart would open further

He waits so patiently 

If only you would seek.


"But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you." 
Matthew 6:33
