A New Year Flips Over

A new year flips over
but not new
still between
already and not yet
still grappling with
sin within
brokenness without
still living as an alien
still longing for home
still facing temptation's draw
still hearing the Tempter's whisper
still grappling with weakness of body
and fickleness of heart
still hoping for what could be
still disappointed by what is.

A new year flips over
but not new
still the same King rules and reigns
still the same Savior pouring out grace
still touched by his nearness
still moved by his promises
still strengthened by fresh mercies
still forgiving grace
still transforming power
still tender love.

A new year flips over
but not new
still Christ in me
the hope of glory.
