I have been trying to wrap my mind around the idea of growing older and I’ll admit that I have had some difficulty doing so. I am 65 years old and because of the advances of medicine this age doesn’t quite have the same meaning as it once had. Now it is not unusual to hear stories of people who are active into their seventies, eighties, nineties, and even past the century mark. But there are things happening to me that remind me that I am growing older as the days pass. I think my biggest concern has been, what will I do now that I am at this stage of my life? And the accompanying question I have asked in the form of a prayer is, “what would you have me do now Lord?” But God has subtle ways of answering prayer that more times than none are far from what I would anticipate when He answers prayer . Over the past months I have applied for work. I believed my interviews were successful, but all ended with me being turned down. Yes, it bothered me because my first thought was that I was turned down because of my age. But my God is a surprising God and opportunities have been given to me that I would have never expected. Opportunities that have truly given me the chance to use my God-given gifts in fulfilling and exciting ways. So, if you will indulge me I would like to share with you may journey with you. Perhaps in the sharing we may grow together in our love for our Lord and for the many fulfilling experiences he provides us at this stage in life. So what do you think?
