Lucy Maude Montgomery in her classic, Anne of Green Gables book said, ““Isn’t it nice to think that tomorrow is a new day with no mistakes in it yet?”  It has become one of my most favourite quotes but also one I remember every New Year’s Eve.  The New Year begins with great fanfare and excitement; a New Year full of promise and expectation AND a New Year with no mistakes in it…yet.

Noticing that Jesus had given them a good answer, he asked him, “Of all the commandments, which is the most important?”  “The most important one,” answered Jesus, “is this: ‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one.  Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.  The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.  There is no commandment greater than these.”  Mark 12:28-31

New Year’s Reflections

Looking back on the months gone by,
 As a new year starts and an old one ends,
 We contemplate what brought us joy,
 And we think of our loved ones and our friends.

Recalling all the happy times,
 Remembering how they enriched our lives,
 We reflect upon who really counts,
 As the fresh and bright new year arrives.

And when I/we ponder those who do,
 I/we immediately think of you.

Thanks for being one of the reasons I'll/We'll have a Happy New Year!

By Joanna Fuchs

This funny New Year’s poem addresses how time seems to fly. A funny New Year poem can show how we can choose to perceive that time rush in a positive way. 

Tick Tock

I’m writing this in a state of shock,
Watching the clock—tick tock, tick tock,
Advancing, approaching, relentlessly,
A brand new year; Oh, can it be?

The calendar says the same thing, too;
Time races, vanishes for me; Boo hoo!
No, wait! If time flies, I’m having fun!
A year of fun! It’s gone! It’s done!

I now embrace the blur of time,
Because it simply means that I’m
Too busy with pleasure, joy, delight
To mourn the passing days’ swift flight.

So I’m wishing you fast, happy days,
Pleasuring you in myriad ways,
Filled with happiness and cheer,
Oh Happy, Happy Bright New Year!

By Joanna Fuchs

Less time and energy on things;
More time and energy on people.
All of life’s best rewards,
deepest and finest feelings,
greatest satisfactions,
come from people--
people like you.

By Joanna Fuchs

New Year wishes can inspire. This New Year poem in free verse advises us to focus on what's positive in our lives. 

Look For The Good

In the New Year, let's resolve
 to get less stressed, upset, anxious
 about things over which we have no control.
 Lets have a narrower focus on our lives,
 loving and helping our family and friends,
 making our community a better place to live,
 to create peace and contentment.

In the New Year, let's resolve
 to pay less attention to depressing stories
 on TV, in magazines and newspapers,
 and to stop focusing on what we want
 that we haven't got,
 instead of appreciating
 the many blessings we do have.

In the New Year, let's look for the good.
 We may have to search
 through a mass of negative media,
 but the good is there,
 all around us.

I wish for you a New Year filled with good,
 engulfed in serenity and happiness!

By Joanna Fuchs

New Years Blast

Another year is gone; it's finally past.
It sometimes seemed a grind, sometimes a blast.
Looking forward to a brand new year,
My source of joy and fun is very clear.

In all the happy times I can recall
People create pleasure most of all.
As I ponder the new year, each hour and minute,
I'm very glad my life still has you in it.

My appreciation for you is sincere,
So I wish for you a happy, bright new year.

By Joanna Fuchs

New Years messages should be motivating. This New Year’s poem in free verse sees the new year as an empty vessel waiting to be filled with good things.

Another Chance

A bright, shiny new year,
empty, neat, pristine,
waiting, ready
for us to get it right.
Another chance
to love and forgive.
Another chance
to make a real effort
to give more than we get.
Another chance
to make a difference.
A good new year.
A Happy New Year!

By Joanna Fuchs

Among my fondest new years wishes would be this new year wish to start completely fresh, moving only forward. Don't look back; you're not going that way.

Let Go 

Let go!
Let go of 365 days now past
never to be relived
except in our minds.
Some good times, some bad,
some boring...let go!

Let’s empty our brains
of the worn antique
that was the old year,
diving fearlessly
into the new year,
clean, fresh,
full of endless possibilities.

Let go, to make room for it all.
Happy New Year!

 By Joanna Fuchs

Time Flies

Another New Year.
Another 365 days flown by,
joy, laughter, struggle, tears.
It’s all good because
living all that time made us
who we are today:
Older, smarter,
more capable of handling the New Year.

All those experiences are assets
we hold in reserve,
so we know what to do,
whatever comes.
Experience is priceless.
Fly, time. Fly!

By Joanna Fuchs

Another year, another chance
 To start our lives anew;
 This time we’ll leap old barriers
 To have a real breakthrough.

We’ll take one little step
 And then we’ll take one more,
 Our unlimited potential
 We’ll totally explore.

We’ll show off all our talents
 Everyone will be inspired;
 (Whew! While I’m writing this,
 I’m getting very tired.)

We’ll give up all bad habits;
 We’ll read and learn a lot,
 All our goals will be accomplished,
 Sigh...or maybe not.

Oh well, Happy New Year anyway!

By Joanna Fuchs

Funny New Years poems can talk about the futility of setting goals for the new year. This New Year resolution poem doesn't take itself seriously. 

New Year’s Resolutions

Each year I resolve with the strongest intent
 To be better this year than the last.
 And I work very hard; the rules hardly get bent,
 But this discipline gets old so fast!

But with this new year I just know I’ll win out,
 Just watch how I do and you’ll see!
 I’m not going to have yet another blowout;
 I’ll be good as I know I can be.

But, if wicked things beckon, and I’m not so strong,
 If I weaken and fall on my ast,
 I’ll be thankful again that you’ll help me along
 As you have during all new years past.

I’m so grateful that you’re my (title)! Happy New Year!

New Years poems can be about a variety of subjects. The following two New Year poems are related to New Year's Eve parties. You can break up New Years poems, if you like, and just use the parts that work for you. Choose the stanzas from this New Years poem that relate to your New Year’s Eve party and leave the others out. 

New Year’s Eve Party Invitation

The New Year’s rolling in;
 We’re planning quite a bash.
 We need to have you here.
 So it will be a smash!

We really want to see you;
 We hope that you can make it.
 So help us make our party fun,
 Or we might have to fake it!

Just bring your awesome self (or "selves")
 And what you want to drink.
 And we’ll provide the other stuff,
 Including the kitchen sink!

When you let us know you’ll come,
 We’ll smile and shout "Whoopee!"
 So sit right down and phone us
 With your kind R.S.V.P!

By Joanna Fuchs

Funny New Years poems can be about a variety of subjects, but New Year's Eve parties are often the subject of New Year poems. This New Years Eve poem describes a fantasy New Years Eve party. 

The New Year’s Eve Party

The new year is coming; the party is near.
 I’m sure looking forward to lots of good cheer.
 I’ll be all dressed up in my snazziest best,
 So I won’t disappear in the crowd like the rest.

I rap on the door and it opens to screams;
 There are several guys hanging from high ceiling beams.
 The guy in the lampshade looks ready to go,
 As the girl on his shoulders shouts, "Giddyup Joe!"

I walk right on in to be one of the throng,
 And they yell out my name while they bang a brass gong.
 We laugh and we frolic, we dance and we sing,
 (Is that my grandmother out there on the swing?)

This party is great, and the New Year looks bright.
 Well, that’s how I dreamed it, while sleeping last night.
 I’m thinking about you and wish you were here,
 So I’m sending this poem to say Happy New Year!

New Year Love Poem

New Years poems include New Year love poems. Those are in short supply, and there are a lot of searches for them, so I wrote this free verse New Years love poem to meet that demand. 

A New Year With You

I'm so grateful for a new year
 to spend with you,
 my most special one,
 my cherished and treasured love,
 who has gifted me with happiness and joy,
 adventure and excitement,
 comfort and peace.
 As I look ahead, I see each day with you
 filled with warmth and affection,
 a deeper, more fulfilling love,
 than I could have imagined
 in my fondest, most perfect dreams.
 A new year with you
 is the most valuable, most precious treasure
 I could ever have.

Happy New Year Sweetheart!

New Year Song

New Year's poems can be set to music! In my opinion, New Year’s songs should be upbeat, positive and happy, like this Happy New Year wish song. New Years songs should be sung to familiar melodies. The well-known melody of part of Beethoven’s 9th Symphony, commonly known as "Ode To Joy," is used for this New Year's song. If you are not familiar with this melody, or if you need harmony parts and accompaniment, the melody has also been used for a popular hymn, called "Joyful, Joyful, We Adore Thee." You can find it in most Protestant hymn books. The melody for this New Years song is the in the public domain, and in my hymn book, there is no copyright notice on the harmony parts and accompaniment, although it is always your responsibility to check that out. 

Happy New Year Song

Happy New Year, Happy New Year,
 Family, friends and colleagues, too.
 May this new year be your best yet,
 Happiness the whole year through.

Let’s all join to lift our glasses
 In a toast to everyone.
 To the old year now behind us,
 To the new year, just begun.

(Repeat first verse)

New Years Toasts

These next three New Years poems in free verse are designed for New Year's toasts. Choose the lines you like from each New Year poem to make your special New Year toast. 

This New Years poem, a New Year toast, sees the coming twelve months as a gift, and it's a wonderful New Year message that will strengthen and uplift those who hear it. 

The Gift of a New Year

Here’s to the year
 that’s almost past its expiration date—(say old year, such as "2019").
 We all had some surprises, didn’t we?
 Some good, some distressing.
 Let’s use everything we got from our experiences,
 everything we learned,
 to enrich the new year.

Here’s to the new year, (say new year, such as "2020),
 a gift we haven’t opened yet.
 May its bright, shiny package
 contain even more than we hope for.

And even while we’re delighting in new treasures,
 let’s appreciate fully what we already have—
the blessings we take for granted.
 Make a list, and check it twice.

And here’s to all you wonderful people
 (wave glass around to encompass the whole group
 who are putting up with my toast;
 I hope in the new year
 you see yourselves the way I see you:
 intelligent, interesting, and likable.

(Raise glass) To (say new year, such as "2020"):
 May it give a whole new meaning
 to the phrase, "the good life."

By Joanna Fuchs

New Years poems should focus on the positive, as this New Years toast does. An upbeat New Years poem like this one is always welcome. Implementing this New Year sentiment would improve anyone's new year. 

Fulfillment in the New Year

Here’s to the outgoing year, (say old year, such as "2019"):
 May the good times live on in our memories,
 and may we learn lessons from the troubling times
 that will make us stronger and better than ever.

Here’s to (say new year, such as "2020"):
 For each and every one of you,
 may it be filled with significant steps
 toward the fulfillment of your fondest wishes.

In this coming new year,
 let us focus on our goals and work toward our dreams,
 and yet (smile)
 let’s all try to go with the flow a little more
 and stress a little less.

And most important,
 (wave glass around to encompass the whole group)
 here’s to all of you.
 Appreciate yourselves and each other in the new year
 as I appreciate all of you now.
 Let’s focus on each other’s good points
 and choose to overlook minor annoyances
 to create mutual happiness and contentment in (say new year, such as "2020").

Here’s to 2020 (or whatever year the new year is) (raise glass): Enjoy the journey!

By Joanna Fuchs

New Year toasts can be in the form of New Years poetry. They can rhyme or they can be in free verse, like this New Years poem, which is an all-purpose New Years Toast for your New Years Eve party. 

New Year’s Toast

Here’s to the new year...
 May it bring more joy and success
 And less grief and regret.

To our dreams...
 May we never stop believing in them
 And taking the actions that will make them a reality.

To our friends, loved ones, associates (or colleagues)...
 May we take the time to let them know
 How much it means to us
 To have them in our lives.

Let us encourage more and criticize less,
 Give more and need less.
 And whenever we can,
 Let us create harmony and peace.

To new beginnings...
 Let us start fresh, right now,
 To make this the very best year ever.

A very Happy New Year to all of us!

Christian New Years Poem

For the many people who are typing into their search box Christian New Years poems or religious New Years poems, here is a New Year poem that may fill those requests. 

Christian New Year’s Resolutions

How can I use the New Year
 To better serve my Lord?
 I’ll read my Bible every day,
 And be more in accord.

I’ll find new ways to serve others;
 I’ll love my neighbor, too.
 I’ll focus on "give" instead of "get"
 In everything I do.

I’ll forgive the people I’m mad at;
 Angry feelings I’ll discard;
 I’ll try to love my enemies,
 Even though it’s hard.

In the new year, I’ll lift people up,
 Instead of putting them down.
 I’ll fill my heart with love and joy,
 And never wear a frown.

I’ll let go of my worries;
 I’ll put it all in His hands;
 I’ll repent and try to sin less,
 And obey all His commands.

These new year’s resolutions
 Are difficult, at best,
 But there’s something I can do each day
 That will put my soul at rest:

I’ll love my Lord with all my heart,
 With all my mind and soul,
 And if I do that essential thing,
 All the rest will be in control.

New Year Prayer

New Years poems can be religious. New Year prayer is one of the top New Year poems search terms, so this New Year's poem in free verse is a New Years prayer. 

New Years Prayer

Dear Lord,
 In the new year, we pray
 that You will guide us each new day
 in paths that are pleasing to You.
 Lord, the new year gives us another chance
 to rededicate our lives to You,
 to study Your Word
 so that we know right from wrong
 and to act in accordance with Your commands.
 Thank You for the sense of
 direction, purpose and peace we get
 from aligning our lives with Your Holy will.
 We pray for the strength and the will to obey You
 each and every day of the new year,
 and when we fail, we pray for Your mercy,
 Your compassion, Your grace and Your love.
 Help us in the new year to be Your faithful servants.
 In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen.

100 Bible verses to inspire you this Christmas and New Year

wishing you all a wonderful new year bible verse

As we put our vision and dreams on paper in our business plan this year, , there are two things I am sure will help you succeed: Faith and a spirit of gratitude, and that means even being grateful for the bad days. When we use our superpowers in business, it's really leveraging our God given purpose as we exchange goods and services for a fee. You have a winning combination when you can leverage God's purpose on your life and use it to serve others through your business. What's even more amazing is that God will send the provision you need to fulfill his called on your life. Now that doesn't mean you know everything you need to know to be successful in business. But in the right season, God bless you and your business. Be available and listen to that still and quiet voice to guide as his vision manifests.

After nearly 17 years in business, I now know that God's will is what is best for me. God has three answers for us: Yes, Not yet, and I have something even better for you. 2016 is the year of gratitude and abundance. If you are grateful for every little thing, he'll give you even bigger things. One who has conquered failure and transcends fear, carries an undeniable power from within. As I share with you my 10 good bible verses ever business needs for 2016, focus on finding the joy in the journey.

Psalm 5:3 (NIV)
"In the morning, LORD, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait expectantly."

Begin your day in prayer and meditation, so that you can maintain a peaceful outlook and not start your day in a race. Ask the Lord for the desires of your heart and believe that he will answer.

1 Thessalonians 2:12 (NIV)
"... Encouraging, comforting and urging you to live lives worthy of God, who calls you into his kingdom and glory."

No matter how successful we become in business, we must always seek to be shinning examples of God's light and love.

Proverbs 18:13 (NIV)
"To answer before listening -- that is folly and shame."

We have two ears and one mouth for a reason. It's always best to listen first in any situation and speak last, after you've had time to consider fully what has been said.

Philippians 3:13-14 (NIV)
"Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus."

It is very important that we as Christians remember always, that we love a God who is a God of first, second, third, forth, and one hundred or more chances, if we need his forgiveness. It is important that we forgive ourselves quickly, and not dwell in our past mistakes.

1 Timothy 6:12 (NIV)
"Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made your good confession in the presence of many witnesses."

Faith is key in business and in a lifetime of happiness. For those of us who are believers, it is important that we witness to non-believers what God has done for us. He died for us on the cross, so that all sin is forgiven, and that we would have everlasting life.

II Corinthians 12:9-11 (NIV)
"But he said to me, my grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ's sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong."

It is in our weakness that God makes us strong. So we will always have challenges because it is in those times God wants us to lean on him for strength.

Psalm 37:23-24 (NIV)
"The LORD makes firm the steps of the one who delights in him; though he may stumble, he will not fall, for the LORD upholds him with his hand."

Running your business will challenge you in ways you never considered. There will be days when you stumble, but God will always be there to catch you and lift you back up.

Romans 8:18 (NIV)
"I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us."

You can't have a testimony without a test. In business, it's all about upfront sacrifice for long-term gain. What God requires of us is present suffering for future glory in heaven. God wants us to have confidence that he knows the desires of our hearts and he will resolve our issues in his perfect time.

Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV)
"For I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."

Every step in life and in business had already been ordered for us before we were even born. God does not reveal his plans to us all at once, because we could not handle it. He gives us a just glimpse though visions and dreams, but he plans for us to all live a prosperous life.

Psalm 23: 5-6 (KJV)
"... Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever."

When you are in business you will develop haters, but it is important that you realize that you don't have to handle your detractors yourself. God will bless you right in front of them. All you can do with your haters is pray for them.

I often stop during my workday to thank God who has been so good to my family, my business and me; it makes me tear up when I think about his goodness.. These scriptural references have helped me have hope throughout my life in business. I hope the verses from the Bible, and my translation, have encouraged you. Many times it's hard for us to pitch our tent in the world, but God sees you. He loves you and if you give him your life to him, he will give you the desires of your heart. Keep going!

May God Bless You in Your Business.
