Give us the good, ole days!


In the end of his reflections on the trials and tribulations of his people in Babylonian captivity, the writer of Lamentations makes this final plea:

“Restore us to yourself, Lord, that we may return; renew our days as of old.” Lamentations 5:21

While we live in the war-torn debris our lives, there always lies a secret cry for the return to the days of peace and prosperity. The biblical path to the restoration of our past successes lies in spiritual renewal. It is God who brings about the spiritual renewal; God is the author of our new beginnings. God will give us back the years that the evil one has stolen when renewal has been wrought in our hearts in the place where God experienced his war-torn debris – the Cross. – Ron Friesen
