We have been through a lot over our lifetime. We have experienced and battled through the many things as we have pursued God and His Kingdom. Some have felt like lossses and others like wins.
*There were times when we dropped the ball and times when we scored.
*There were times when we’ve been slammed to the ground and times when we had a great run.
*There were times when we misread the call and times when everything worked perfectly.
*There were times when we had a flag deservedly thrown on us and times when it was unjustified.
*There were times when we pleaded, to seemingly deaf ears, to be put in the game and times when we thought we’d never stop.
As we get older, it’s these kinds of experiences that make us seriously wonder if our time is over; if this is “a young man’s game”, if we are “past our prime”, if we are being retired. Nothing could be further from the truth!
The most significant and determinative season of life, as in sports, is the 4th quarter. Many times we have been both shocked and delighted with an unexpected win toward the end of a game.
Experience, endurance, skill, passion, determination, perspective, strength all kick in to change the course of the game. This is what seasoned players possess.
You are no longer a rookie. Your greatest impact is yet to occur. You are more equipped, trained, tempered and needed.
“Scripture is filled with examples of men and women whom God used late in life, often with great impact – men and women who refused to use old age as an excuse to ignore what God wanted them to do.” – Billy Graham
Moses, Joseph, David, Paul and even Jesus spent most of their lives being trained and prepared by God for their final and most important mission.
It’s your time! You just need to reorient, recalibrate and be released.
This men’s retreat will help you do this – 4th Quarter: It’s Your Time. This is specifically for men 50 and older who desire to make their greatest impact.
November 8-11, Bear Trap Ranch, Colorado Springs.
