A BETTER NORMAL – Ray E Horton
I so agree with these words from sister Elizabeth Spencer, which were re-posted by my granddaughter Ashley Tiffany:
We have needed a new and better normal, with Christians back to their first love, spending intimate time with God in prayer, loving one another, and reaching out to this lost world
“Maybe getting back to normal shouldn’t be what we want most. Maybe what we should want more is to get forward to something better. To a place where we recognize that there were some good things missing from out old normal and so we decide, gratefully, to make them a part of our new.”
I have believed that we have needed a new and better normal, with Christians back to their first love, spending intimate time with God in prayer, loving one another, and reaching out to this lost world.
Christians Arise, and do what we are called and empowered to do. May enough of us actually influence our materialistic culture, which has had a wake-up call with the current pandemic.
This passage was prophesied for our day in Rome by Ralph Martin back towards the beginning of the Charismatic Renewal in the early 70’s and left a deep impression upon me:
For your light has come!
And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you.
“For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth,
And deep darkness the people;
But the Lord will arise over you,
And His glory will be seen upon you.
“The Gentiles shall come to your light,
And kings to the brightness of your rising.”
