It’s Never Too Late With God: Your Best Days Are Still Ahead!
The story of “Laurre the Elliot” who bagged a master’s degree at the age of 90, says a lot about the fact that where there is a will, there will always be a way — no matter the trials, tribulations or pains! “Laurre the Elliot” is a proof to many that it’s never too late to fulfil your dreams. She said it was that “nagging unfilled desire” that prevented her from never giving up. If you want to do something badly enough, then you will be able to do it. She welcomed her status as role model and hopes to encourage other elderly people to pursue their long-held aspirations. “I hope I can inspire some of these people to continue their education; that’s my goal”, she told WFAA (communications center studios). Madam Elliot who hails from Portsmouth, England, spent 15 months at the University of Sussex doing her master’s degree in “Russian and Eastern European Studies”. She also spent a year at the University of Portsmouth as part of her first degree in Russian Studies. She later planned to get her Ph.D. God can still help you accomplish whatever you desire in your life.
One day with God is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are as one day: from a scripture in the Bible. Spiritually, a Gregorian calendar doesn’t exist. It doesn’t matter the amount of time required, an invincible determination can achieve almost anything — and in this lies the distinction between great men and common men. In the Bible, we see how God overturned the captivity of Job at his old age. Zechariah and Elizabeth had one of the greatest miracles because they decided to wait on God, despite their old age. If most people would do the same, they could be put in a place of honour in their generation. I remembered several years ago when the wife of a pastor committed suicide by hanging herself at their residence: she hanged herself while the husband was attending a night vigil because during the years after they got married, they had no child, and she suspected that the husband was falling into temptation and having sex and children outside their marriage.
The wife of a pastor, who should have had more hope, seemed to forget that there is no problem that God can’t solve. Although suicide is a permanent solution to a temporal problem, we must never judge the dead. If the act of suicide was due to lack of having a child, and she was growing older, does the God of Zechariah, Abraham, Sarah and Job die when people become old? No, he doesn’t! Whatever your case is, it is not too different from that of the people who lived ages ago. Nothing was late for them, and it will never be too late for anyone else! And it’s about time you start saying that repeatedly to all the forms of negativity that are staring at you. Note that age is not a barrier in achieving God’s plans for your life! Many people are always blaming circumstances for the cause of where they are in life; however, the people who get along in this world are those who get up and look for the circumstance(s) they want, and if they can’t find favourable circumstances, they look for ways to create them till they do. Reject all forms of regrets! Look unto God. It is never too late with God; your best days are still ahead!
