Freshness in the ancient ways

Bread rising, baking, cooling on racks
flowers, sweet and vibrant
citrus oil from fresh cut oranges
all fill a house with the warm scent of fresh

and we hunger

We are a people easily bored
seeking new without a moment to absorb old
crying out to the Lord for a fresh word
a change of direction

This is what the Lord says: “Stop at the crossroads and look around. Ask for the old, godly way, and walk in it. Travel its path, and you will find rest for your souls. But you reply, ‘No, that’s not the road we want!’ Jeremiah 6:16 NLT

May we find our delight in the ways He leads us
as He seasons this new season
with His Spirit
always fresh.




Joining Peter Pollock and the rest where the word is fresh

Thanks for the reminder that fresh doesn't always have to mean new, and also that something new (to me) isn't necessarily fresh!

I love your reminder, Karin. He has told us what is good (to do justly, love mercy, and walk humbly with our God) and He is unchangeable and immovable. Eternity and eternal words are beyond time. Thank you.

LOVED this. So very accurate, true... not much more I can say b/c it IS just that: accurate and true.
