Respect/appreciation for Past yet embracing New

Let Christ-Light Sine on it all.

One of the tragedies of this modern world. both in society and even being allowed to infiltrate’ our churches is this cry…………..throw out everything and embrace the NEW. All old stuff is irrelevant. Books, music, paintings, get caught up in this as homes can become sterile places full of just NEW TECHNOLOGY..

Jesus Who is the Ancient of Days is unchanging in All Of life’s voibles. The love of the richness of the past without discarding it, is a spiritual TRUTH. Music, Beauty, and a return to a LOVE for the Bible as a Book to hold and touch not as relayed words on a device for example does enrich the soul.

I have a very old computer (Horror of horrors) it has NO INTERNET. It should have been thrown out as new and more modern versions have emerged. It is in 2022 one of my personal great delights.

I can turn it on. Enjoy the beauty of my chosen Home Page. No interrupting news feeds or statistics scrolling down the side. I can write. Typing is still a joy. Photographic Images are stored but I am totally free simply to use a computer as a tool to be an aid to life in fullness. I have a mobile phone and a laptop and websites all are ON THE INTERNET. I thank God for the joy I still have in my senior years of working without technology.

Prayer is like this. A relationship with Jesus Christ means you need NO technology to walk with Him and talk to Him with no distractions. Sadly even prayer in some lives needs the internet to feel connected.

I too am ‘Connected’ to know the prayer needs etc of this broken world but I thank God for my very old computer which still gives me a quiet space to still work and be prayerful at the same time.

Value All the Godly in our pasts and lets keep the valuable and beautiful but embrace the new balancing the two,

God is Constant in Him the Old and the New can blend as ONE.

Love and Blessings!. The BLOOD of CHRIST still flows and the River of God is still freely accessible.

About Faye

I m a wife, mother and grandmother. I have always enjoyed writing even from an early age. My book Beyond the Ashes has been written as a labour of love. All the characters are real to me and their story needed to be told. As a Christian my desire is to write General Fiction stories about real people but Hope and a desire for 'better' will always be part of the journey. I have had several short stories published over the years and moderate success in writing competitions. I realized as I was thinking today (30/01/15) that perhaps I should add here that I have had life experiences of many valley times but also many mountain top experiences. I can understand and be beside anyone who finds their life in tatters because I have 'been' there. Of course as I have got older as well there have been the added sorrows of losing not only older family members but also one by one finding the dearest of friends and the ones of greatest support and care also dying. On the site of rich mountains has been my certainty of the value of marriage and how grateful I am that after loss and sadness I made a happy and long-lasting marriage commitment. The one who was my best friend back then is still my best friend 45 years later. Beyond the Ashes touches upon the POWER of LOVE when folk can forget about their own personal 'feelings' and reach out in LOVE to a desperate and broken person.

    We are truly blessed in Him, in His many provisions for us to serve Him.

    Why, yes! Even the Sacred Word is divided in to the Old and the New, isn’t it?? Each equally important – for the Old is fulfilled in the New. We can’t have one without the other, can we? So too all of life, I suppose. Perhaps not as “welcomed” but necessary nonetheless. Hugs to you for this great ponderance today!
