Some incidents force truth upon us. Suddenly, our mortality is thrust upon us. We are well into our life’s journey. The end is in sight.
Sure, the pandemic DAZED us but that was a group DAZE, and yet we are still here. God has numbered our days. DAZE days can …boost us …or roost us, depending on our relationship with God.
Some people are boosted in hard times; they grow emotionally and spiritually. They encourage others, but some roost in their past and never let go of their pain. They turn into those cranky old folks we all avoid. You know, the ones who hit you with their cane; the Aunt Marthas and the Uncle Freds we invite only for holidays, and then only because we feel obligated.
If we aren’t the somebody we want to be, perhaps we’d better pay more attention while we still can. None of us can make a brand-new start, but we surely can move past our shock and aim for a brand-new ending!
God has a reason for aging. If He didn’t, we’d already be in the next place.
Now that I am old and gray, don’t forsake me. Give me time to tell this new generation (and their children too) about all your mighty miracles.(Psalm 71:18, TLB)
Do you know how to do that? Do you know that Jesus, the son of God, came to earth, died on a cross for our sins so that we could live a full life, even in the midst of a pandemic?
