It's Not Too Late
"Those who are planted in the house of the Lord shall flourish in the courts of our God. They shall still bear fruit in old age; they shall be fresh and flourishing …" Psalm 92:13-14
Have you ever felt like you missed the train to some big thing?
Or maybe you waited but your train never arrived.
There's only one way to defeat that feeling—you must be planted in the house of the Lord.
Theologians would probably interpret that as "church," but I think it has a broader application. I believe it means anyone in the family of God.
If God plants you, He promises you life-long refreshment and usefulness, even in your old age, if you'll cooperate.
When you walk with God, it's never too late for you.
I pray that encourages you—with God, there's always hope. The train has not left you behind. God never abandons or forsakes His own.
At the end of 2019, Sharon and I closed our law practice and a charity we had run for many years. We moved away from our home, friends, and family members, and started over in another state.
With our lawyering days behind us, and our kids all grown up, it was time to fulfill a call God had made on our lives many years ago.
The decision to leave our friends and family was not easy. At times it was painful, and we even started packing our things to move back!
But when we stopped and seriously asked God for direction, He made it clear: we were being replanted.
You know how that works. First, you have to unearth the plants by the roots.
