A Poem About Starting Over

By Annonymous

When you’ve trusted Jesus and walked His way,
When you’ve felt His hand lead you day by day,
But your steps now take you to another way, start over.

When you’ve made your plans and they’ve gone awry,
When you’ve tried your best and there’s no more try,
When you’ve failed yourself and you don’t know why, start over.

When you’ve told your friends what you’ve planned to do,
When you’ve trusted them and they didn’t come through,
And now you’re all alone and it’s up to you, start over.

When you’ve prayed to God so you’ll know His will,
When you’ve prayed and prayed and you don’t know still,
When you want to stop ’cause you’ve had your fill, start over.

When the year has been long and successes few,
When December comes and you’re feeling blue,
God gives January just for you, start over.

Starting over means “victories won”,
Starting over means “race well run”,
Starting over means “The Lord’s will be done”
We need not just sit there, start over!
