I love a poem by Elizabeth Gozney about seeking a fresh goal daily. It inspires me. It helps me to remember to gain more knowledge daily, for there’s no limit to knowledge.
With knowledge, there’s also power.
You may grow older in years, but your spirit can remain sensitive, receptive and alert.
Your actual age ceases to matter. as long as you remain alert your whole self is safe.
Don’t doubt this. Think about people like Edison, who was experimenting at 83;
Benjamin Franklin, who helped shape the United States Constitution at 81; Goethe, the
German dramatist, wrote ‘Faust’ at 82. Cato, who lived in the days of the Roman
Empire, when Greek culture was invading Rome, set about to learn Greek at 89. Titian,
the Italian painter, executed his noblest masterpieces in his 90s. Are these not
encouraging? What about you?
Remember, God has justified you and you can not be condemned (Romans 8:1). God,
whom we serve, will not about you or me in our time of need. The Lord is our strength at
all times (Psalm 28:7). I have time for things that matter to me.
All I know is that with God all things are possible (Matthew 19:26). So don’t give up, no
matter what you are going through. Psalm 121:1-2 says, I look to the mountains. Where
will my help come from? My help will come from the Lord, who made heaven and earth.
Never lose hope, for after the rain comes the sunshine. Life is full of uncertainties, but God is greater than them all.
God bless you all.
