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 join many of those who will pray for you as you seek to discern what you are called to be at this moment. May God grant you the courage to fulfill that calling. May we all open our eyes and see the misery, open our ears and hear the cries of God’s people, and, like God through the Lord Jesus Christ, be incarnate amongst them.”
