During most of life's journey, we rarely give thought to the time when we will be senior citizens. When it finally arrives, some of us are anxious to enjoy the world of AARP, Medicare, Social Security and ticket discounts. Others are fearful of the physical changes we don't wish to asknowledge or admit. We find ourselves in the midst of retirement from a lon-time career, facing the care of aging parents, looking forward to travel, or finding ways to use this free time productively. Those of us who "arrived" at this point have been immersed in both poitive and negative experiences. As we walk daily with God, devotional books help to encourage and strengthen us as we try to stay focused on HIs Word. "Nothing Between" is a book for those who are experiencing life's later aging process. It provides a connection between you and your Creator for an entire year, while also generating personal growth, spiritual progress and joy in living.
God knows our age. He honors age and aging, but He also has a plan for each one of us at this place in our senior years.
How do I walk closer with God in my later years? What is God's plan for me in this season of life?
With aging bodies, ever-changing technology, and a recent global pandemic, author Diane Harper knows the challenges of living in the senior years, but she also knows the God who created her to "still bear fruit in an old age" (Psalm 92.14). Throughout this devotional, Harper shares her stories and struggles, wisdom and insight on how to walk closer to God when he feels so far.
