New beginings. Aren’t you thankful for new beginnings? A new year is upon us and that always brings to mind new beginnings. This past Sunday at Fairview Church we sang the following song. It spoke to my hear then and continues to do so today. As you read the words, let them sink into your very being; hold on to them when the pain and sorrow threaten to overwhelm or the future seems hopeless. And as you contemplate the words, realize that a new day can not only be the start of a new year, but EACH day is a new day in Christ.

Beauty for ashes
Joy for my pain
You’ve given me wings
To fly again

Strength for today
A dance for my sorrows
Because of You
Because of You

Hope for my future
My life’s made brand new
Because of You
Because of You

It’s a new day
It’s a new day
Shadows rise
At the glory of the Son
It’s a new day
It’s a new day
The past has gone
And life has just begun

Chains of fear turn to freedom
Silence breaks into praise

It’s a new day (It’s a new day)
It’s a new day (It’s a new day)
It’s a new new day (It’s a new new day)
Since You came my way (Since You came my way)
