Ageing Isn’t So Bad
Ageing Isn’t So Bad
 
Are you called to help others? Do it with all the strength and energy that God supplies so that God will be glorified through Jesus Christ—to him be glory and power forever and ever. Amen.
- 1 Peter 4:11
 
“Live every day like it is your last.  Make every moment count.”  We have all heard this hundreds of times.
 
I think more and more about how I can still be a contributor to society and not just a taker.  I am comparatively healthy and have few aches and pains.  Why am I so fortunate when many friends have life-threatening illnesses and are struggling day by day?  God must have a plan for me even as I age.  I know I need to be more open to opportunities, and God does promise to supply the strength and energy I need.
 
Jean Anderson, a teacher in the Upper Class Sunday School Class, handed out this saying:
You can’t do EVERYthing
so do SOMEthing
ANYthing is possible
That really rang a bell.  So prayer was next.  And KAZAM!
 
I saw in the Times News that Family Abuse Services was looking for volunteer court navigators to accompany women or men to Civil Court for domestic violence protective orders or to Criminal Court for various charges.  After some excellent training, all one is required to do is to just be there for a person, provide support, listen, and help the client have the courage to tell her/his story.  There are many positive results and anyone can be trained to do it.
 
Prayer:
Thank you God for giving us the strength and energy to serve—even as we age.
