The Rest of My Life


A retiree recently posed this question: What do I want to do with the rest of my life?

I decided to ask God what He wants to do with the rest of my life. I believe his answer is for me to live increasingly closer to Him for the rest of my life, whatever it takes.

He often brings this question to mind: Will this decision bring me closer to God or take me further from God?

The closer I get, the closer I want to be, because Jesus is the source of life and I cannot have it from a distance.

(Jesus said) “If anyone is thirsty, let him come to me and drink. Whoever believes in me as the Scripture has said, streams of living water will flow from within him.” John 7:37-38

(Jesus said) “Remain in me, and I will remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine.” John 15:4
