How far can you go in pursuing the Lord? Can you still have the same passion even when you get older?
Pursuing the Lord
Misty Edwards has a question for all of us, how far can we go? How abandoned can we be for the Lord? Will you still serve the Lord with passion even when you age? Misty shared her experience when after years of passionately serving the Lord, she suddenly felt as if her sacrifices were not worth it.
“I started to bawl as I realized this somewhere along the journey, this accusation began to rise up in my heart and saying, ‘I don’t really think it’s worth it.’ I don’t know if I want to do the next 40, 50 years of my life radical,” she shared.
How Far Can You Go?
God wants us to continue our journey with Him even in our old age. He wants us to still have the same passion and zeal we had in our 20s. No matter how old you get, nor the experiences you encountered, your relationship with the Lord will never change.
“When I see a man or a woman in their 60s, in their 70s, who are still going radical, wholehearted, still asking the question, ‘How far can I go? How abandoned can I be?’ That moves my heart a thousand times more than a thousand 20-year-olds,” Misty said.
Our pursuit for the Lord never ceases just as His love for us never changes. People don’t just quit pursuing the Lord, they continue to go deeper into His presence, into His Kingdom.
“When you have the pressure of life and your own children are growing up, and you’re still looking at Him saying, ‘I want to go further, I want to go deeper.’ There is nothing more beautiful in the human race, in my opinion than that. It is stunning. The older I get, I’m shocked that people don’t just quit.”
