Our Retirement Years

by PamFord Davis  
10/17/2018 / Devotionals

Are you looking forward to retirement?

Maybe, like me; you are already in your retirement years. To be honest, I’m beginning to think that retirement (like age) is a state of mind. Though officially retired I continue to work. I’m just not clocking in or on a payroll.

V for volunteer!

“Now behold, the Lord has let me live, just as He spoke, these forty-five years, from the time that the Lord spoke this word to Moses, when Israel walked in the wilderness; and now behold, I am eighty-five years old today. I am still as strong today as I was in the day Moses sent me; as my strength was then, so my strength is now, for war and for going out and coming in (Joshua 14:10-11 NASB).”

Whether we're coming or going… retirement is not boring.

I see my retirement through eyes of faith.

“… for we walk by faith, not by sight (2 Corinthians 5:7 NASB)."

‘We’ll work till’ Jesus comes’ [Hymn by Elizabeth K. Mills-1837]

“Working for the Lord doesn’t pay much, but the retirement is out of this word.” [Anonymous]

I have the above quote on a small plaque. I received it as a gift from my oldest sister Donna and I cherish it. Absent from the body; Donna is receiving her rewards.

“… we are of good courage, I say, and prefer rather to be absent from the body and to be at home with the Lord (2 Corinthians 5:8 NASB).”
