Are you no longer working in a paid job? No longer identified by your career or your JOB? Have you ever felt no longer ‘relevant’? Past your prime?
In many lives this has been allowed to become a REALITY. I have walked this path.
It really is an untruth.
When you come to this place – don’t surrender to the ‘old age or retired’ mentality but REJOICE. Surrender completely to the real you. For the Christian Believer surrender now to the GOD Who is the author and finisher of all things.
It is time for a new mindset’,
You can become the reaper and the sower of BEAUTY and HOPE in your world which needs it so much. This is a life-long occupation and can be expressed in many, different ways. Find something worthy, something lovely and HOPEFUL.
The harvesting of all the forest trees near our property has been hard to watch in recent months. It was necessary for the timber industry. I mourned for the loss of birds and other native creatures but most of all the loss of native flora. The picture illustrated burst into my view as I walked one afternoon recently. It was after rain and the clear defiant regrowth of a native species.
With sight of it came the clear thought.
Now is the time in your life to seek out and find BEAUTY in the harsh places and share a touch with others.
Today on this Sunday let our hearts soar with thankfulness for what we HAVE and not what we have ever lost. Let us look Above the world and harsh circumstance and find the Hope and Beauty of the abundant Life found in Christ for all who concentrate on what is ABOVE. In the sky itself sometimes but often unexpected in the least likely places all around.
Blessings , Love and Peace to you.
