An unplanned future success is not guaranteed.
None of us can ever arrive at a future which we haven’t deliberately planned.
One of the most unplanned aspect in the lives of many people today is season of grey hair. We often think about many things but only few of us always think about the season of our grey hair.
Do you think about the season of your grey hair?
There is only one thing that determines wether the period of your grey hair will be a blessing or a burden.
The one thing is: THE PATH YOU ARE TAKING NOW!
Proverbs 16:31 says, “The hoary head is a crown of glory, if it be found in the way of righteousness.”
Every path has a definite destination. The path you are following now in your daily decisions and choices determine the destination where you have chosen to arrive.
I often tell those who are close to me that we can predict our future by the choices we are making today.
“The memories of a man in his old age are the deeds of a man in his prime.”
The season of grey hair can be your season of glory, honour, peace, rest, good health, joy and satisfaction if we chose moral and spiritual rectitude in every area and relation.
There are choices that are non-negotiable if we desire glory rather than shame in the season of our grey hair.
Some of these non-negotiable choices are…
– Personal commitment to walking with God in righteousness, commitment to love our spouses and children by offering them the best of our time and attention. Commitment to serve humanity with our gifts, resources and talents. Commitment to healthy living rules. Commitment to financial planning and investments. And commitment to finding fulfillment in our life purpose rather than pleasures of the world.
The best time to decide how we want the season of our grey head to be is now, not later.
And it is never too late to redefine our choices now. Walt Disney once said, “Growing old is mandatory, but growing up is optional.”
The life well lived is the life well planned.
You have the power to influence your future!
Live today in a way you will be happy when you have to remember it tomorrow.
#1. Take time to ponder on how you have lived your life so far.
#2. Can you confidently say the outcomes of your choices today will be desirable in the future?
#3. If no, decide on one or other areas you need to change your choices. Then, do something to change them ~ Talk to your mentor, your spouse or anyone who can counsel and hold you accountable.
