Too old to dream? That’s the negative thought or fiery dart this elderly lady had come to call it. Yet she had to admit that at 70 years of age, it was an ongoing struggle not to give in to such a depressing thought. For the reality was that people her age and younger actually, were suffering from poor health and the obituaries of the local paper and facebook regularly reported on those who has lost their struggle.
How did she know that at any moment a certain pain might herald the dreaded attack of some terminal illness? Or that some unforeseen circumstance would spoil her plans for her future? Well, the truth of it was that she didn’t!
Therefore, she determined that she would leave the plans for her future (and whatever those details looked like) in God’s hands! She would embrace the Truth thought that God had plans for her future; plans for her good and not for bad, to give her hope for her future. So with that and a bit of naivety about the realities of old age, this elderly lady purposed to live the remainder of her life!
