Turning the Corner

I am at a point in life where I am turning a corner. Life as I knew it just ten years ago was very different than life at the present time. Getting older comes as expected, however feeling older is a kick in the butt. Accepting these facts is enlightning. When you turn the corner in life, you suddenly realize how finite life is. Towards that resolution I have created my own Bucket List.

These I may be able to realize:

1) I want to see Paris and London.

2) I would like to visit the Holy land.

3) I would like to see my books Rag Doll Tales and Rag Doll Tales Mama Mabel’s Journey made into an animated cartoon

These are loftier goals that I probably will not realize:

4) World Peace

5) An end to world suffering

6) A cure for cancer and other diseases 

7) Acceptance of people in this world for who they are, not what they look like.

And then there is the  goal  that I am currently working on:

8) Use all the gifts that God gave me.

 

In the Bible there is a story we all have heard about the people who were given talents by God, and used them in very different ways.

Personally I was half way between the one who used them and the one who buried them. Well….I got out my shovel and the results are the notice below. Most astounding is that since I have made this decision, almost daily I have recieved messages from various sources  that reassure me I have made the right decision. Further below is a message from Joel Osteen, I know he probably sent this message to millions of people, but the message was meant for me.

The bottom line is, don’t wait till you are in your senior years to explore your dreams, live life with a passion, or “find yourself.’ No matter what you age, race, finances, or circumstances live life to the fullest and go with God.

TODAY’S SCRIPTURE
“The LORD our God said to us at Horeb, ‘You have stayed long enough at this mountain.’ ”
(Deuteronomy 1:6, NIV)

TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria
Have you been facing a mountain for so long that you feel like you are just sort of stuck there? Maybe at one time you knew you would break that addiction. You knew you would beat that sickness. You knew you would get married. But, you’ve gone through disappointments. It didn’t happen the way you thought.

Today, God is saying to you what He said to the people of Israel. “You have dwelt long enough on this mountain.” It’s time to move forward. God has new levels in front of you, new opportunities, new relationships, promotions, breakthroughs. But, you’ve got to stir up your fire. You’ve got to get a vision for victory. The dreams, the promises that you’ve pushed down and thought, “Oh, it’s not going to happen. I’m too old. I don’t have the connections. I don’t know the right people,” God has it all figured out. If you will start believing again, start dreaming again, start pursuing what God put in your heart, God will make a way where you don’t see a way. Press past the mountain and move forward into victory!

A PRAYER FOR TODAY
Father, thank You for Your grace and mercy on my life. Thank You for empowering me to overcome every obstacle and press past every mountain. I look to You to lead and guide me into victory in every area of my life in Jesus’ name. Amen!
