You ever wonder why people use this term? For the past few years (about five I suppose) I have really disliked the use of the phrase. It wasn't until a recent Saturday that I was listening to this mixtape called "I love the 90's" that I began to understand why we think and use this phrase.
ITS BECAUSE THE WORLD IS GETTING MORE WICKED...
Because things back in 1994 seem better, we look fondly on them.
1. A wistful desire to return in thought or in fact to a former time in one's life; a sentimental yearning for the happiness of a former place or time. (Among other variations)
But if we are growing in wisdom and understanding under the guidance of God, why should things be worse? If our "yesterday" self is a long road from the blessed present we are experiencing. You know that MIGHTY LONG WAY so many of us claim that God has brought us from.
SO HOW CAN WE TRULY TALK ABOUT THE GOOD OLE DAYS?
Or have we not been changed?
