  • Your phone service will not allow you to access voicemail, despite a PIN.
  • Automatic updates to your computer routinely change the font and format of familiar programs – often removing or altering features you find helpful.
  • Your printer randomly repeats print jobs already completed, and will not allow you to stop a job in progress (wasting ink, paper, and time).
  • Your bank texts an access code to a cell phone you do not own, then disables your ATM card.
  • Your social security number is for sale on the dark web.

Welcome to the modern world.  Little wonder that we sometimes snap at unoffending bank tellers or the tech support personnel trying to be of assistance.

Technology, for all it has to offer, can sometimes be a challenge for those of us of a certain age.  Change – especially at the rate it is occurring these days – can feel threatening, and be difficult to absorb.

What does not change is human nature.  We fear the unknown.  We fear aging.  We fear loss of control.

But the future so fast approaching is not unknown to God.  He remains in control, and we remain in His care.

‘…do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on…Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them.  Are you not of more value than they?’ ” (Matt. 6: 25-26).

Heavenly Father, we are prone to worry, despite Your assurances of faithful and loving care.

Forgive our lack of faith.  Calm our fears.  Help us to cope with the changes taking place, in our daily lives and in our society.  Remind us to seek first Your Kingdom.  And keep our eyes on You.

We ask this in Jesus’ holy Name.



  1. Thank you for the reminder that our hope lies not in what we can do,but in what He did for us at Calvary.

  2. Great prayer Anna, we sure need His strength to help us through..

  3. Ohhh yeah… this post needs an “amen” button! 🤗🙏💜 Jackie@KWH

  4. I like your blog! Thank you for a great post on Jesus and the modern world.

  5. Updates pushes us to the point where we have to accept the reality. It is similar to when iPhone came with their features that we had to upgrade on phones along with it. That is some form of tyranny and cruelty.
