New Hope Dawns

by 50djohnson


September Sunrise 009

New hope dawns again with the rising of the sun

Knowing that starting over has only just begun.

Temptation  controlling  life with that last look back,

Don’t surrender when feeling the urge of that defeating “past” attack.

Forging ever onward joy knowing it’s a brand new day.

Don’t let discouragement even have a say.

For today is all there really is, in the grand scheme of things.

Yesterday’s gone with no guarantees of  tomorrow’s wakening.

So joyfully start today afresh, peace leading the way,

Get up and get started paying it forward without delay.

With resolve to be healthy and joyful, at least until noon…

Blink, and you might miss the chance to love and hum a tune,

After the day has ended, there’ll be smiles in your heart for sure.

Knowing this day was more than something you just endured.

Fulfilling a day with wishes and dreams coming true as planned

Deciding early this morning for  happiness to take a  stand.

So with resolve to be  happy and healthy, all day long,

Come to the end of day with praise,  heart filled with a song.

Knowing you made the right choices to be all you’re created to be

Satisfaction and pride in yourself you’ll find, showing you’re really free,

Free from choices made, that used to drag you down…

Choices now made that glorified Him,  release those last big yawns,

Resting in God’s assurance tonight, morning  comes as New Hope Dawns.


Wonderful it is to know each day is a fresh beginning. Be happy… Life can change in an  instant, making things different forever Life happens to so many people all over the world, causing them not to be able to laugh, love, and live. I love the saying,” Never judge people. You have no idea what’s going on in their lives. Everyone has pain and a story worth hearing.”
