Something old, Something new, you know the rest…

I hear Julie Andrews singing “Somewhere in my youth or childhood, I must have done something good”, signifying her absolute awe at having Captain Von Trapp fall in love with her…and it honestly takes my breath away.

I love to watch The Sound of Music, a cinema version of a real-life heroine it takes me back to my own youth and feelings of first love, a love that has never died. Can you or do you remember the feelings of first love? 

There is nothing like it. 

I think one reason so many people become unfaithful in their marriages is that we get used to life as usual and long and crave to feel the excitement and that rush of adrenaline that comes with new love…there is no scientific study as far as I know that would verify that thought just something I truly believe. 

Actually, we are all looking for change and something new all the time. Why else would there be so many different types of restaurants, grocery stores, clothing stores, etc.? 

I don’t like change, so when I get used to a grocery store, I stay with it! I got my little world upset recently when the Kroger that I frequent went through a face lift so now I don’t know where anything is, and I didn’t even change stores!

Fads come and go from hair teased so high you can stick an unsharpened pencil in it one year, to the parted in the middle straight look the next and we, like sheep, follow the trends. I am sure you have gone through a lot of the fashion changes too, but it’s not the changing fashions and hairstyles I’m worried about, it is the adultery in our world that gets to me.

Adultery in the flesh is one thing and yes, it is a sin, and it doesn’t look any better on me than it does on you, but more than that I am speaking of the adultery of the church, now that bothers me.

People are tired of the old-time religion and they feel it doesn’t offer solutions so they look for other “powers that be” which also cannot give you a solution. In following Jesus Christ, as the only door to salvation at least I know that I have a hope of eternal life. 

Is there life after death? 

It has been my experience to see into that realm and I know that life goes on in the spirit. 

You looking for love? How much more could we be loved than to have Jesus give His life for us? That is the love that should never get old to us. To go looking for a new way or a “secret”, is stepping over the blood of Jesus to go in another direction. It doesn’t feel good to be left because someone is seeking a little excitement or another way of life, so I know that Jesus, having given so much for us, must weep over us as He did over Jerusalem, because He loves us so.

A chorus we used to sing says: “I have decided to follow Jesus, I have decided to follow Jesus, I have decided to follow Jesus, no turning back, no turning back.” It continues “The cross before us, the world behind us, no turning back.”Galatians 5:7-10 You were running superbly! Who cut in on you, deflecting you from the true course of obedience? This detour doesn’t come from the One who called you into the race in the first place. And please don’t toss this off as insignificant. It only takes a minute amount of yeast, you know, to permeate an entire loaf of bread. Deep down, the Master has given me confidence that you will not defect. But the one who is upsetting you, whoever he is, will bear the divine judgment.  

Keep your mind stayed on the Word of God. Be faithful to Him, He has always been faithful to you, His child.
