I've gotta admit, that I'm not sure getting older is what I had expected. But, then, I don't know what I had in mind when I would think ahead to my gOLDen years. All I can really say is that one of the greatest blessings that God gave me was when He prompted me to quit my job. It's allowed me (and even caused me because of circumstances) to dig deeper into my Bible. Now, I will NEVER claim to be a Bible scholar. I'll leave that up to others who can recite scripture and truly know Bible history. I do believe that God gives each of us certain talents and gifts and that includes Biblical knowledge. Some are historians and others are life application and there are probably other "categories" that could be listed. I fall so deep into the life application. I have to be able to apply what I read to my own life, or share it with somebody else regarding a situation they're going through. That's where the spiritual gift of "prophecy" shows itself!!!
What about y'all?
For those of you are more "mature" (I'll never be fully mature until I reach glory), are your gOLDen years what you pictured?
Do you find yourself digging deeper and deeper into God's Word to glean what He has to say about your life?
Are you able to share what you learn with others (hence this blog)?
And, are you, like me, embracing this season of your blessed life?
Breathing in Grace,
