Given recent circumstances regarding our work (see my post yesterday entitled Retirement), hubby and I have spent a lot of time discussing “the future”.
What do you think of when you think about “the future”? Does your mind go forward a month, a year, five years, 10 years, 20 years or what?
Is it just me or as we get older, do we start to find “the future” is closer to now? i.e. When we were teenagers the future seemed a life-time away. Now as we’re older and our family and friends get older too, we now only look ahead a short period of time. Why is that?
I guess for me, it’s the fear of some of the events that will occur, and those that may occur in the next few years that make me not want to look too far ahead anymore. I do get scared sometimes about what lies ahead for me and my family, but when I do, I turn to God, because I know that whatever the future holds, I’m in His hands.
Thank you God for being my Saviour and my friend.
