Make the New Year the Best Year of Your Life

How to Forget the Troubles, Problems, and Failures of the Past and Make the New Year the Best Year of Your Life

How to Forget the Troubles, Problems, and Failures of the Past and Make the New Year the Best Year of Your Life

I am thankful to God for giving us time-markers. I believe that in His grace and mercy, He has done so to give us feeble and frail human beings the joy and privilege of starting over. I do not know about others, but I get excited about a New Year.

Why do I get excited about the coming of a New Year? The coming of a New Year says to me that God is giving me a chance to turn over a new leaf. He is giving me a clean slate to begin another chapter of my life, fresh and new. I get excited about the coming of a New Year because it is almost as if on December 31st I close an old door and open up a new door. The New Year is an invitation to patch up old wounds, old hurts, and old disappointments, to forgive those who have done us wrong, and to be forgiven by those we have done wrong. I get excited about the coming of a New Year because it is a time to set new goals and to take on new challenges. It is also a time to draw closer to God and anticipate the great things He has in store for us and the new plans He has set for our lives.

This short book will show you:

• How to learn from your past troubles and problems and then forget them
• How to recover from your past failures and sins and then forget them
• How to get away from negative, toxic people
• How to forgive others and how to seek forgiveness

“Let All Past Troubles be Forgot”

“Let All Past Troubles Be Forgot” by Daniel Whyte III with Daniella Whyte is perfect for singing at church watch night services and Christian New Year’s Eve house parties. Churches, pastors, church choir directors, praise and worship leaders, and Christians everywhere are encouraged to take this video and play and sing it in their respective gatherings for the glory of God.

Daniel Whyte III, who visited the home and grave of Robert Burns in Scotland, was inspired to write this new song that contains Christian themes using the same tune as the traditional New Year’s song, “Auld Lang Syne.”

Not only does this song celebrate the coming of the New Year, but it encourages people to give thanks for years past, to forget the negative things of the past, to learn from them, and to be grateful to God for His love, mercy, grace, salvation, and even the second coming of His Son, Jesus Christ. This song challenges people to enter the New Year “ready to fight and persevere,” and to do great things for the glory of God.

LONG VERSION

We had a Merry Christmas
And now we welcome the New Year
We’ll march into this New Year blessed
Ready to fight and persevere.

Yes, I have sinned and made mistakes
And even so have you
But God forgave us and washed us clean
And made us all brand new

I have been forgiven much
And even so have you
Let’s learn from all our past mistakes
And succeed in what we do.

This is a New Year, my friend
So stand and do not fall
Hold up the banner of our Lord
And answer the Gospel call.

I prayed to God each day last year
And He heard my cry
He answered me with miracles
My prayers He never denied

I had some friends to die last year
My troubles were not few
But God in love and mercy gave
And carried me through.

I’m happy for this New Year
But I’ll be happier still
When Jesus Christ comes back to earth
According to His will.

Jesus died for me, my friend
And Jesus died for you
He saved me from the pits of hell
And He can save you too.

REFRAIN:
Let all past troubles be forgotten
But remember friends so dear
Let’s praise and thank our God forever
And rejoice in this New Year!

AULD LANG SYNE

Should old acquaintance be forgot,
and never brought to mind?
Should old acquaintance be forgot,
and old lang syne?

And surely you’ll buy your pint cup!
and surely I’ll buy mine!
And we’ll take a cup o’ kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.

We two have run about the slopes,
and picked the daisies fine;
But we’ve wandered many a weary foot,
since auld lang syne.

We two have paddled in the stream,
from morning sun till dine;
But seas between us broad have roared
since auld lang syne.

And there’s a hand my trusty friend!
And give me a hand o’ thine!
And we’ll take a right good-will draught,
for auld lang syne.

CHORUS:
For auld lang syne, my dear,
for auld lang syne,
we’ll take a cup of kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.
