The Ukulele

by Berni Dymet

2 Cor. 5:17So if anyone is in Christ, there is a new creation: everything old has passed away; see, everything has become new!

The other day I drove past a music shop with musical instruments and stuff. And hanging in the front window was a brightly colored ukulele. 

And that ukulele triggered an instant flashback to when I was just a young boy – five, six. I was in a music store with some grown-ups. And there were some ukuleles their – and one of these adults said, “We should buy Berni a ukulele.” Well, I was so excited. But no one bought me that ukulele. As a little child – I can tell you, that really hurt.

That’s the memory that came flooding back.

Isn’t funny how powerful the past can be. Those past hurts are triggered in just an instant. And for many people, the past destroys their present and it robs them of their future.

God’s Word says that if we believe in Jesus – we’re a new creation. Everything old has passed away – and all things are new.  

So – did God really mean that, or was it just … an idle thought?
