OLD PEOPLE AND OTHER STUFF?

OLD PEOPLE AND OTHER STUFF?

Old people, you’re my people now, and I don’t mind because I have lived long enough to Join The Club; Thank you, Jesus.

Young people, just so you know, Don’t tease old folks, they may have one hell of a bite left.  Plus I agree with Leroy “Satchel” Paige when he said, Age is a question of mind over matter. If you don’t mind it doesn’t matter.

The point is to never underestimate someone because of age, and if you’re smart you will take that advice and apply it to everyone.  Regardless of the age, It promotes growth.

As you probably already know the World is overrun with Old People, (I prefer Baby Boomers) and our opinions are broad, to say the least.  Millions of us went from a #2 pencil to the Cloud. 

This is a strong position to be in that calls for Humility.  Humility is the solid foundation of all virtues.  Confucius

It has come to my attention, some seniors think their age makes them scholars; All-seeing and All-knowing.  If you are a senior and feel this way about yourself, I want to remind you like aging, learning never stops until we are dead.  With our knowledge, it’s okay to encourage others as long as we are humble, credible, and what we have to share, is of God.

I found aging to be an adventure; an adventure that allows time for us to explore how to truly live a God-Filled Live.  And now that I have experienced a variety of what life has to offer, age is my antidote and a cure for my anxieties; I no longer have as many spells of insecurities when things are not going my way.   🙂

The process of maturing is meant to be an eye-opener for us to become aware of ourselves.  Some of us started out drawing growth lines on our childhood hall walls or tagged as always asking too many questions; which is a good thing.

With the passing of time, some seniors now feel comfortable enough to confess to the fact that listening didn’t come as easy as some claimed.  It was trial and error; butt whippings, etc… With growth, we put on our listening ears and remembering eyes, causing the rivers of wisdom to flow, which really had nothing to do with us; It was all because of a ticking clock that ultimately led to Experience.

Some seniors with all their knowledge only want to be heard.  Quit wasting time playing god, how are you going to escalate your value in order to educate those who are willing to listen if we never shut up?

I heard a good swift kick in the assets still works for the old and young alike.  So some things never change; A hard head still makes for a soft behind.

For the other stuff,  I want you all to know, I am human too; even I can get on my nerves.  For some reason, it seems as if most of the god-fearing seniors, I know, can pray a dinner cold in and out of the Church.

Just so you know, if you pray an overly long prayer, my mind may wander, but You do You, (11/03/2016) it’s only my opinion, that’s why I do me by picking up the Bible to look for answers.  If any lack wisdom, you should ask God; James 1:5

One Sunday, after hearing what I thought was a never-ending prayer, I decided to look for any information that concerned long prayers.  Ellen G. White said;

Ministers should not pray so loud, and long, as to exhaust the strength. It is not necessary to wear out the throat and lungs in prayer. God’s ear is ever open to hear the heartfelt petitions of his humble servants, and he does not require them to wear out the organs of speech in addressing him. 

Well, I was happy to read someone else shared my opinion, but it was an opinion.  I found the Bible did not talk directly about the length of prayer, but it did give an answer concerning how to pray, that in my opinion was satisfying.  (common sense)  And to be fair, some would call my opinion reading between the lines; I like to think I understand, because of experience.   🙂

What am I to do? I will pray with my spirit, but I will pray with my mind also; I will sing praise with my spirit, but I will sing praise with my mind also.   1st Corinthians 14:15   I feel better.

Seniors while we are venting like I just did, don’t forget we must fulfill our destiny, and in part, what we are looking for and what others may need, could be found in the power of our words, so be sure to use them in a manner that they will seek truth, love, and healing.

God always opens new doors, regardless of age, so before the last door is opened unto me, I welcome the Responsibility to inspire before I expire?

In my old age, I want to be trusted and have the ability to Go To God In Prayer for someone else and be Heard.

I want to be somebody’s favorite hiding place, the place they can put everything they know to survive, every secret, every solitude, every nervous prayer and I will be absolutely certain to keep it.  I will keep it safe.

The author is unknown to me, but I want to be that person, the person God wanted me to be before My End.  Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of one of his saints.  Psalms 116:15

It’s Something To Think About!

    I have been surfing online more than three hours today, yet I
    never found any interesting article like yours.
    It is pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the
    internet will be a lot more useful than ever before.
