#22--69 Things I've Learned--It's too easy to think you're done after you retire
September 01, 2015
Do you ever feel like you need to hear the Sunday sermon again? I need to hear Pastor Jeff Manion's sermon on faithfulness again. It's based on the fruits of the spirit and how God works to build his character into each of us.
God has been faithful to me and he wants me to be faithful to him and he has promised to help me with that.
During my retirement I've felt, at times, like I've lost my purpose, my identity and all that stuff. I don't want to overstate it and I don't want to understate it either.
The sermon Sunday was a clear reminder that God is here with me and he is faithful to me. My life is a marathon where I need to be faithful to him and others as I walk step by step.
In his sermon, he asked everybody who has emotionally checked out of relationships, jobs and life in general. Pastor Manion asked, "Who retired you?"
Then he said, "If you're not dead, you're not done." I'm not dead and I'm not done. Here's a clip from that sermon.
