Life, Prayer/healing, Time/stress

Out with the old & in with the new

Last week, I came to a crossroads with my technology devices. My computer and phone had been acting up for months, and I was fed up! To top it off, the home button on my smart phone had stopped working making it very hard for me to use.

I emailed a Christian Science practitioner for clarity and support because I was fed up, and I didn’t have time to spend hours on the phone with tech support or funds to buy new computers and phones. I’ve also learned that our experience is primarily mental and metaphysical — technology, like everything else in life, is an extension of our thought and can work perfectly in accord with harmonious thinking.

After reading her email and praying for direction myself, I saw even more the value and importance of having a good, working phone. And perhaps I was being a little resistant to change by hanging on to an old phone and phone plan, ignorantly thinking it was better or no different than anything else out there.

Boy, was I wrong! When I checked my phone plan, I learned that I could upgrade my husband’s and my phone for free to the newest model. On top of that, a new phone plan was available that gave us better features at a cheaper price.

Upgrading my phone resolved the glitches I was having. Everything runs so much smoother and faster now. And here I was being resistant to change for nothing!

I found these Bible passages to be applicable to this situation:

…put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts; And be renewed in the spirit of your mind; And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness. (Eph 4:24)

The willingness to put of “the old man” and the old conversation about limits, history, etc., opened the door for new things that were even better than before — an important lesson that is applicable to other areas in life, too.
