A Greater Promise

On the eve of another year given
I have in my sight, in my ear, in my heart is a greater promise.

Believing that all things work for good then all of the heartaches and disappointments were for good.
For they put me on a path to be set in the presence of a greater promise.

Popular song tells me "He's been so good to me. He dried all of my tears away. Turned my midnights into day.
So I'll just say thank you Lord." I can't complain for He knew of the greater promise.

My greatest gift to self today is the releasing of those former things that held me captive. Now I set out for not that which has to catch up to me, not what matches me but that which exceeds me and prods me to constantly seek best and be best.

A greater promise is not perfect and neither am I. Damaged and fragile at the onset now make way for a higher power to take over, erase and make all things new.

Isaiah 48:6 You have heard these things; look at them all. Will you not admit them?“From now on I will tell you of new things, of hidden things unknown to you.
