KEEP ON!

energizer-bunny-final

Did you know the Energizer Bunny was arrested?  He was charged with battery!  LOL.  Sorry, but I came across that joke when I was looking for an image for my Monday post.  My sister and I used to refer to our mom as the Energizer Bunny.  You’ve probably known someone like that, who just keeps on going.  Mom was 86 when she passed away and fought dying all the way.  We thought she was dead about three times and tears began to fall, when she’d wake up and say, “what’s the matter?”  We really had to check her out and have the nurse tell us that she was actually dead.  Right to the last minute, she was ready to keep on going.

I really admired mom’s perseverance and hope that some of it may have rubbed off on me.  There are days when I think I just can’t go another mile.  I’m exhausted, worn out from fighting the battle of life.  Just when I get to the lowest point, I remember that I have the greatest source of energy available to me – the One who created energy!

Time can run us down and as we age it’s even worse.  Our body is finally catching up with our age and it’s not a pretty sight.  Some Mondays you just want to stay in bed for the whole day.  Some Mondays you feel motivated to get something done, only to lose energy a short time into the task.  Some Mondays we need a charge – a fresh burst of energy to get us going and push us to continue doing even the mundane things of daily life.  But this is the time in life when we can really flourish when we’re plugged into God and His Word.  Reading the Bible is the best way to get recharged, but we can also talk to Him in prayer, share Him with others and be a servant as He was, when He walked the earth.

Time may be passing quickly, but there’s still work to be done.  We could take the easy way out and rest in our past successes, but there are those who are crying out for our knowledge – our lessons learned – our experience.

Allowing Jesus to work through these tired old bodies, permits amazing things to be accomplished.  A young child can learn some of the most important values of life.  A teenager can discover his potential – a young mom or dad can learn from the experiences you’ve gone through as a parent – a business man or woman can obtain success through the lessons you learned in your working life – an aging friend who is facing a serious illness can gain strength through the Savior you have to share with them.  By doing these things, God is filling us renewed strength and energy to go on.

Our flesh grows weary as time goes by, but our spirit should never give up.  These can truly be the golden years if we allow God to work through us.

2nd Corinthians 4:16  “So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day.

About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.

  1. Ha! That’s funny. I would have arrested that bunny for disturbing the peace with his little cymbal.

    This is a sweet post. Well said. I was talking with an older woman once,we were watching some kids running around. I said, “don’t you wish you had that much energy?” She looked at me quite horrified and said, “No! Who wants to be forced to run around in circles all day?” It was quite funny, I had never thought about it that way. Sometimes the frantic, frenetic energy of youth is not to be envied.

  2. I would like to borrow some of that bunny’s energy, thank you very much! 😉 You have such a talent for blending humor with heartstrings, Kathy. I frequently find myself swinging from laughter to tears as I read your beautiful writing. Huge hugs!
