I read this somewhere a long time ago:
“It’s never too late to become who (or what) you were meant to be.”
I don’t remember who said that, but even the Bible says that our latter days can be greater than the former ones. So much of that is also in the scripture:
“Beloved, I pray that you prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.” (3 John 2)
When your soul finds its rest in God you aren’t spending your time and energy in stressing over the circumstances that are beyond your control! And, walking in that peace has a restorative benefit where your health is concerned… even a doctor will verify that stress causes a lot of health issues.
As your soul rests in Him, your enthusiasm about your life is restored, your hope is restored, and your health and strength increases! Then you can put all of that into the blessing of “becoming” who you were “meant to be.” Don’t ever give up; retire, or set aside those things that you know God has spoken to you… if necessary, “start anew” every morning until you overcome those things that have held you back! He will help you do it!
The Word promises us His mercies are new every morning! He believes in you… and He will help YOU believe in yourself! The glory still goes to Him! I know that! Be the “You” that you were meant to be… He is with you, to guide you, to strengthen you for the journey, and to lead the way! And He is FULLY TRUSTWORTHY! It doesn’t get any better than that… at least until we get HOME!
