Is not wisdom found among the aged? Does not long life bring understanding? To God belong wisdom and power; counsel and understanding are his. - Job 12:12-13 (NIV)
Since I turned 70, I have become short-tempered. I feel worthless when God seems to ignore my desires to serve the kingdom. I also feel hopeless when social inequities such as nepotism, cronyism, favoritism, and other injustices spread over my country. From time to time I feel miserable and lonely....
God offers wise counsel in every season of my life.

I could not have found The Upper Room Moments of Prayer (on Facebook Live) sooner. For it is during these moments of centering spiritual practices, meditating on the words of scripture, praying with and for the world, that I find moments of transcendence, hear whispers of peace and hope, see glimpses of truth and justice, behold visions of love and beauty amid all the stark realities that are around me.”
