Music Monday: New Year's Day

Even though today is January 2, we are still celebrating the New Year today. There is a great song that is several years old called "New Year's Day" by Carolyn Arends. We had seen her in concert many years ago with Rich Mullins and we really enjoyed her and her music. This song is from her "Seize the Day and Other Stories" CD. I hope you enjoy this song!


You can find out more about her at her site.

You can listen to this song here.
I buy a lot of diaries
Fill them full of good intentions
Each and every New Year's Eve
I make myself a list
All the things I'm gonna change
Until January 2nd
So this time I'm making one promise

Chorus:
This will be my resolution
Every day is New Year's Day
This will be my resolution
Every day is New Year's Day

I believe it's possible
I believe in new beginnings
'Cause I believe in Christmas Day
And Easter morning too
And I'm convinced it's doable
'Cause I believe in second chances
Just the way that I believe in you

Chorus:
This will be my resolution
Every day is New Year's Day
This could start a revolution
Every day is...

One more chance to start all over
One more chance to change and grow
One more chance to grab a hold of grace
And never let it go

Chorus:
This will be my resolution
Every day is New Year's Day
This will be my resolution
Every day is New Year's Day

I love this Bible verse and how it relates to this song:


"If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness." 1 John 1:9

I like this song because it reminds me that I need to resolve to change each and every day, not just the first few days in January. I can start over any day of the year! I'm thankful that our God is a God of second chances! When I screw up and come back to him through it, he forgives, over and over again! What a great God we serve!
