NEVER TOO OLD
[The righteous] will still bear fruit in old age,
they will stay fresh and green.
Several months ago, another pianist joined our church
choir, making four of us. I felt discouraged, useless, and
humiliated. I asked God, “Am I supposed to retire at age 61?”
Then, when my sister
needed help after surgery,
I decided to attend
another church that had
earlier hours for worship.
After only a month, I
was told that this small
congregation planned to start a choir. Immediately, I knew
that God was calling me. I offered to be the pianist, and I have
enjoyed participating in this choir ever since.
This change has not only helped me to understand the
sermons better, since the language is my mother tongue, but I
have enjoyed making new friends while also keeping in touch
with friends at my old church.
From this experience, I have come to understand that as
long as we are willing, God will guide us and prepare a way
for us. No matter our age, if we listen to God’s calling, we can
Prayer: Dear God, thank you for guiding us when we feel
lost. Help us to remember that we can always serve — if we
are willing. Amen.

Thought for the Day
As long as I am willing, God
can find ways for me to serve.
