About this event:
If You Are Not Dead, God’s Not Done
It is easy during the latter years of your life to feel like everything is coming to a close. You are tired, you have worked a long time, you are asked regularly and frequently when are you going to retire? You have thoughts about slowing down and letting go.
You question your motives and you question your plans.
Certainly, there is great value and strength in spending more time with your grandkids. There is great joy in taking time to be with your parents in their last days. There is a great blessing to know that in your latter years you have more resources and can help people in great ways.
But what about your future? What are the things you are thinking about as life seems to be settling in on your end strategy? You want to do something different, you want to go places you have not gone and you certainly don’t want to get stuck in a rut. I have seen people react and live in both extremes, haven’t you? Some gravitate to their tv’s and only get out of the house to go to see the Doctor or go to the grocery store. Some get out and spend the day trying to help out with the grandchildren. Some want to run the roads and travel from State to State to see all of the natural wonders.
We give up our jobs, we give up our civic responsibilities, we give up our positions in the church. We give up on years of faithful dedicated service. So what’s next?
LISTEN, I have great and exciting news for you. If you are not dead, God’s not done with you! God has a unique and special plan for your life. He who began a good work in you is not finished working through you. You have a special place in His kingdom and He has people He wants you to minister to.
In the days ahead, thinking about a future that is not yet fulfilled and not completely planned, let Philippians 1:6 be your motto, “I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus.”
God has more for you to do. Seek His will and let Him fulfill your life with His purpose.
