Just when I think I can’t go another mile – when I’m exhausted and worn out from fighting the battle of life – when the days grow shorter and there isn’t enough time to get things that need to be done accomplished – there comes an energy that helps me go on.

Time ravages us.  It takes away the elasticity from our skin.  Our flesh becomes thinner causing bruising to become more apparent and wrinkles to appear.  We sag in places that we never did before and our spirit can easily begin to falter as well.  That’s a time in life when we need to re-energize.  We need to let the aging process go on, but never allow our spirit to die out.  This is  a point in life when we can do the most for others.

Time may be passing quickly, but there is 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.

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.


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.
