However, the part of yesterday's post that seemed to resonate even more with you and with myself was about how God sees us and uses us for His glory...even "repurposes" us with a new idea or plan during our retirement years. For many of us, we find ourselves with more time on our hands, and for myself, I don't want to feel like this time or these retirement years are going to waste! I want to be useful and do something meaningful with the time and talents God has invested in me.

As I reflected on these thoughts during my devotional time this morning, I was directed to read this devotional from Streams in The Desert, which was written many years ago and set apart for today's date, July 6th. This may be a lot of reading for you today, but I want to share the key thoughts from this devotional with you, because it spoke to me so profoundly...and maybe it will to you as well.
The key verse for this reading was a portion of II Chronicles 20:12 ~
