How It Was Before

Kinzua Dam

“I used to come here before the dam went in,” he said.

“But now, I can’t remember how it looked.”

As Christians, it’s sometimes hard to remember

How it was before Christ came and changed our lives.

It’s even harder to remember

The love

And comforting peace

We had in Christ

After we have drifted away from Him.

Spiritual passion erupts like a geyser in the early days following conversion, then settles into a lukewarm pool, and finally may evaporate of neglect or disillusionment. (Philip Yancey: Reaching for the Invisible God)
