Why your best days are ahead of you

January 22, 2010 Leave a comment

I think I missed making a re-post of Michael Hyatts Why You Aren’t Dead Yet.  I have slightly reworded the title of the post here since the title might be a bit discouraging.  The contents are anything but!  Thought of this after talking to a couple of friends.  Hyatt did the post in response to the following question of an old yet wise friend, “Do I have anything left to contribute? Are my best days over?”  Needless to say, Hyatt’s response to his friend and to all of us was, you better believe it.  Hyatt’s conclusion,

You may be old. You may be sick. You may be divorced. Your kids may not be speaking to you. You may be out of work. You may be broke. You may be discouraged.

But you’re not dead yet.

And that’s proof that you still have not completed what you were put on earth to do.

Aftermy recent post on  paradoxical commandments, the song, “I do it anyway” and 2 cor 4:16, me thinks there is an ongoing theme here.
