This morning, I took a promise from my Promise Box, and was reminded of an old hymn we used to sing when I was a child. It was called, “Give Me That Old- Time Religion.”
One verse I remember in particular said: “It was good for my mother…it was good for my father…. So give me that old-time religion…give me that old- time religion…give me that old- time religion…it’s good enough for me!”
Now, we all know that God does not want “Religion” from us…He wants pure, unadulterated Faith. In this changing world, where things that were once considered wrong are now the norm…it is hard to keep on the right path; the path we were taught from our parents…the OLD ways. They seem antiquated at best to the younger generation. They call us “Old Fashioned”, and with all the new thinking, and influence of technology, it SEEMS that we are; but, here is what God says about what our Spiritual mind and heart should seek:
“Stand you in the ways, and see, and ASK for the OLD PATHS, where is the good way, and walk therein, and you shall find rest for your souls.” Jeremiah 6:16
Here is the prayer that was on the back of the promise…
Thank You, O God, for caring about the things of this world that need repair, like my life!
Let’s all ask God for an unwavering Faith, the Faith of our forefathers!
