Gods Will Remain Forever



Here we are now in the year of 2014, a new time or a new age. Gone are the days where children honored their parents, also gone are the days where husband and wives stayed together for the sake of the children. These days no one wants to stay together, for better or worse, for richer or poorer or till death do them apart. Gone are the times where men open doors for  women, where children respected their elders, men  nor women respect each other. Back in my day there was a time where family members stayed in touch and met at grandmothers house on Sundays. Those were the days where neighbors looked out for each other and watch over their children. Back in those day, people respected each other, they respected the law and had  fear of our Father in heaven. Even though I am one of the people that celebrated our history of electing the first black President. I often think about the times ,when things were simple and people respected each other. Back then marriage was something everyone respected and people stayed together for a lifetime. Today people treat marriage like a drive through, one day they are married the next they are divorced , then remarried again. Back then children honored their parents and today children disrespect their parents or divorce them . People used to respect each other back in the day and now it seems that no one respects each other privacy, values or space.

Yes we all live in new time or a new age, where clothes we wear are as different or as the cars we drive. The way we raise our children or the way we treat our spouses, neighbors or friends have changed. But one thing remains the same through it all and that's God. God will always be God and will not change his ways. Just because we have changed ours ways or rules, Gods rules remain, the same and even if we want to make up our own rules along the way. We may have change our values and also lost respect for ourselves or others. God will always command respect, will always be feared and when in need will always be there for us. As he has been ,then, now ,in the future and always. As much as we rejoice or embrace change or feel the need to change, Gods way will always remain the same. Through time, as we change, there will always be winters,springs , summers and falls. There always will be seasons and there is nothing man can do to change that. There always will be ups and downs, people will fail and some may succeed, but through it all God will remain the same. As we live in a world of constant change we all should remember some of the old sayings that our parents used to say , If its not broken don't fix it, What goes up must come down, What comes around  goes around and Respect is earned not given. As much as I love and enjoy all those sayings. There is one saying that I will always cherish for the rest of my life," Gods will and way will always remain forever".
Have a blessed week in Christ,
Charles
Roman 15:4 For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through endurance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope.
