This is the year I’ll lose the weight;
I’ll look my best; I’ll get a date.
This is the year I’ll exercise;
I’ll trim my waist and tone my thighs.
This is my year to do my best
With God’s help, I’ll pass every test.
This is my year! Six pounds are gone.
I get up and jog, each day at dawn
I’ve joined the singles group, downtown
My dating life has turned around.
This is my year! It’s really swell;
With God’s help, I am doing well.
This isn’t my year; it’s getting tough;
Forgoing snack food is so rough.
And exercising is not for me
And the guys I’ve met can go climb a tree
This isn’t my year; I just can’t do it
I don’t think God can help me through it.
This is my year to accept my weight
Being “pleasingly plump” must be my fate.
I’ll clean my house; my yard needs weeding
(And I need to catch up on Bible reading.)
It’ll still be my year; just wait and see;
God will be making some changes in me.
This is the year to forget those chores
I’ll pamper myself and go visit the stores.
I think a new hairstyle or brand new perfume
May help me feel to shake off these feelings of doom.
I must turn my life in a different direction;
With God’s help, I’ll do some self-reflection
This wasn’t my year. Not one thing went right.
My weight’s up ten pounds; my clothes don’t fight right
I haven’t read Scripture; I don’t have a date
I’d better do something – before it’s too late,
Should I drink green tea? Should I eat some kelp?
Oh, God, please guide me; I need your help
January – (this year)
This is the year that God will lead
He will supply my every need.
I know I’ll need to take some action
But He will be my satisfaction.
This is my year to do His best
I’ll trust in God; He’ll do the rest.
