With forty plus years of experience in ministry, I started this site as a survivor (smile) to help you finish your race. Paul the apostle was a survivor of many things, and he still finished the race God had for him, and you can too.
The main thing I don’t like about old people (and I am treading ever closer) is they often allow the difficulties they have faced to weary them to the point of exhaustion. They quit dreaming because they have allowed life to rob their idealism, sense of adventure, and hope for tomorrow. They “retire” in their minds long before they turn in their keys. With God’s help, there is a better way.
As an inventor, Edison made 1,000 unsuccessful attempts at inventing the light bulb. When a reporter asked, “How did it feel to fail 1,000 times?” Edison replied, “I didn’t fail 1,000 times. The light bulb was an invention with 1,000 steps.”
Life often has many more “steps” to success than we imagine when we are young and naive. No matter your age, don’t let your “adventure of faith” make you feel like you have failed. I have often said I am a late bloomer because it has taken me so long to learn so many things. But I never gave up, and neither should you.
This site is about never giving up, getting back up, and learning that God still has a plan for your life, to give you a hope and a future. Even if you are retirement age, there are always outliers. Be the one that breaks the stereotypes. As of this writing, Marilyn Hickey is 88 years young , and still traveling the world and preaching Jesus to the masses.
Don’t let anything or anyone but God tell you when your time is over! “Do not go gentle into that good night…” He that began a good work in you will continue it until the day He is finished with you. Until then, fight the good fight of faith knowing God is on your side.
I encourage you to follow this site as I bring you Biblical encouragements, message notes, commentary on the Bible as it applies to issues of the day, devotions, and other personal and guest articles to bless, encourage, inspire, and challenge you…and to give you hope that you can be a survivor too.
