New Year’s resolution has been a tradition that most people make every year.  It has also been a tradition that some people cannot keep up to their promises made and most likely, it has been secretly kept to themselves.  However, there’s more than just a new year’s resolution.  You can evaluate and reflect first on what happened to your life in the previous year.  Then make a list of your target goals and plans on how to achieve it. Just pray and ask God’s guidance about your plans that He will lead you to the right direction.  Do things according to His will.  I also want to share with you an excerpt from my 200 lines poem entitled “Life’s Reflection”.

Psalm 37:5 "Commit your way to the Lord, trust also in Him and He shall bring it to pass."
Psalm 37:5 "Commit your way to the Lord, trust also in Him and He shall bring it to pass."

Life’s Reflection (Excerpt)

There are times in our life that we don’t understand

We often wonder “Why does it need to happen?”

To lose something that we love and cherish

To lose an opportunity that is so good and true

To lose somebody who is young and bright

To lose the riches that means everything to us

Stabbed at the back by a friend and co-worker

Suddenly fired by an unreasonable boss

Crashed in a car accident by a drunkard man

Murdered a family by a psychopath from nowhere

Robbed out by a whole irresponsible gangster

Left all alone in turmoil and misery

We felt so much pain and anger in our hearts

We felt so alone grieving for the lost

The lost of something so important to us;

We felt so many burdens in our shoulder

We felt betrayed, anguished and unsafe

Feeling shaky that it might happen again

We sometimes hear ourselves asking God

“Why such tragedy happens to good people?”

“Why gave us trials that is too heavy?”

“Why do we feel so alone?”

“Why does it have to happen to us?”

“What have we done to deserve this?”

Now before He answers us with our doubtful questions

He then asks us “Why should I not give you these trials?”

“Why didn’t you cast your burden upon me?”

“Don’t you believe in me?” Where is now your trust?

“Why do you feel alone? Don’t you have faith in me?”

“Why not you, my child and why it should be given to others?”

“Haven’t you thought that others may have their own too?”

As we listen slowly and reflect to all His words

We came to realize our unworthiness in His sight

We regret for being one of those doubtful Thomas

We felt the shame of having so little faith on Him

We have seen how we disgrace His glorious name

We recognize our transgression and wickedness

We are sorry for our disobedience and indiscretion

We lament over the guilt of our sinfulness

We wept for His forgiveness and mercy

He has reminded us that in our weakness He is our strength

When we felt weak, helpless and alone

It was those times that He stands and carries us through

It was those times that He tells us “He is there for us”

It was those times that He wants us to trust in Him

To trust in His power and not by our own understanding

It was those times that He wants us to see His presence

Because it was those times that we have forgotten Him

Behold that by the grace of our loving God

You shall find peace and happiness in your heart

Fear no one for He is always there to protect you

Have faith and give all your hope on Him

By His mercy and love you will endure everything

Feel blessed for you shall find your true riches in heaven.

      Hi Deborrah,

      I guess we have so many “whys” in our mind that we forget to think of the “what”. What has God done to our lives? I hope our readers would be inspired to ponder on this thoughts. I really appreciate your additional insights, too. Thank you for checking out this hub. God bless you.

      Hi Storytellersrus,

      God has always been a loving Father to us. It is not Him who considers us unworthy, but rather it is us who realized our unworthiness because of our sins. The more we read the Bible and listen to His words, the more we realize our sinfulness. If you continue to follow the succeeding lines, we should already be ashamed of men’s doubtfulness, wickedness and little faith on Him especially during times of troubles. We are not even worthy to come into His presence, but His love, grace and mercy made us precious to His sight as children of God.

      Thank you for checking out this hub and asking these questions. I hope this helps you and our readers understand its meaning in a deeper level.

      We came to realize our unworthiness in His sight

      I do not understand this line. Is God not our loving Father? Does a Father ever consider his child unworthy?

      I agree with you Sarra. It is those times that we are down that He takes care of us. We may leave His side but He will never leave us. Let's just continue to share His blessings.

      Thank you for reading this hub.

      Absolutely wonderful! I have found when I am 'down and out' and am talking to God that I feel so much better and don't worry as much. God is truly there to guide us and He will never leave our side.
