{Word Filled Wednesday} The Old & the New

Older generations can impart such wisdom on younger generations, but sadly we often overlook this powerful truth.

The same can be seen in God’s Word. The Old and New are so beautifully intertwined…Jesus knew it; Jesus lived it and we are blessed to hear and embrace it. The Old and the New married into One Word. So captivating and relevant.

It reminds us that just as a family passes down a beautiful tradition from generation to generation because the family understands the value of such a tradition, God too passes down His beautiful Word from the Old to the New weaving together a beautiful, priceless masterpiece.

Reading the Word in the Old and seeing it again in the New reminds us just how valuable this Word is.

{Welcome to WFW!}

There are very few rules, in fact the beauty of this ministry is the creative expression that God reveals Himself through. We marvel at the creativity that participants post! It’s a blessing! We encourage the ” post behind the picture,” or the reflections that many of the participants share. We ask that for WFW that participants refrain from using non-biblical. If you’ve got the time we also encourage you to visit a few of the WFW contributors! It’s always a blessing to see the Scripture and story that creatively appear across the screen.

WFW is not about books, authors, artists… it’s about God and HIS WORD ONLY. WFW is about celebrating the gift of creativity through God’s Word and sharing the creative Word!

Please join us as we share the creative gifts God has blessed us with by signing into to the Link below to participate in WFW.

Lori MacMath

Lori's daily mantra includes praying, "I will take it Lord, ALL you have to give," and a commitment to live out Colossians 3:17 daily. It's her prayer that the energy that fills her spirit be with her till her dying breath! Nearly two years ago, Lori traded the sauna of the Deep South, for the snow of Chicago. After 19 years in Atlanta, Lori has bought herself a coat and some winter boots and is ready for the NEXT adventure at Harvest Bible Chapel / Chicago West. She navigates this road with her husband of 26 years and they have 3 children, ranging in age from 17 - 22. She seeks daily to be creative and use the gifts the Lord has given her. With the heart of an artist and a spirit to live intentionally missional, Lori strives daily to see Him in all that surrounds her. Encouraging women on their daily walk with the Lord is her passion! She has recently stepped out into NEW territory with her husband in the inner city of Chicago. She is on staff at Harvest Chicago West, in the Austin neighborhood, where the Lord is opening her eyes to Urban Ministry and Discipleship. Lori and her husband also have a Business as Missions endeavor that helps empower women and missionaries around the world. She would be HONORED if you'd visit Hope Products International where providing HOPE to the world through fair trade and sustainable products. Lori has served in a number of roles over the years, ranging from Camp/Leadership Adventure Coordinator, a mid week Bible club for elementary and upper elementary students in a local public elementary school as well as being on staff at her church. She is excited in this season to watch the Lord unfold HIS plans for the next step on the journey. Helping others, loving others where they are and seeing the transforming power of Jesus is at the heart of all she does. Her heart for children, women and all those on the broken road is at the core of everything she does. She LOVES playing graphically and encouraging others through visual arts, and her passion for Discipleship is at the heart of all she does. It truly inspires her and fills her spirit.

  1. Beautiful reflection on the old becoming new in the passing on of wisdom. I am thinking about this a lot lately as I just visited a castle in England that is in my ancestery. Powerful knowing hands touched those walls in 1100.

  2. Oh Lori, what a great way of intertwining these two encouraging Bible verses. I’ve been sharing the Matthew verse with my grandkids a LOT lately, along with love your neighbor AND love your enemies. What a great illustration of that, along with the point back to Deuteronomy. Thank you for such a sweet and uplifting Word-Filled Wednesday. 🙂 Have a blessed and beautiful week!

  3. I love that, Lori, so beautiful ~

  4. I am blessed both by Godly mentors and by the opportunity to mentor others. Praise God that the connects the generations and makes us all useful one to another. Hope you’ll visit me sometime at Saved by Grace!
