What the Bible says about age

What the Bible says about age

FOR THE WOMAN WHO FEELS TOO YOUNG OR TOO OLD FOR HER DREAMS

For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work among you will complete it by the day of Christ Jesus. - Philippians 1:6 NASB

I looked at a popular Christian influencer’s Instagram and felt the stings of comparison. She’s five years younger than me, and already she’s accomplished almost everything I have on my God-sized dream list. Immediately, I was flooded with shame and that dreaded lie from the enemy: “You’re behind.”

But if I’m being honest, I’ve also struggled with the opposite. When I was younger, all I wanted to do was grow up. I longed to be seen as mature and to be taken seriously.

So, when do we ever hit that sweet spot of contentment and security when it comes to age? Spoiler alert: We don’t.

There’s never a perfect Goldilocks season where you feel “just right.” You’re too young, and then one day you realize that you’re too old. There’s never an in-between.

That is, unless you choose to believe that God can use you at ANY age for the plans He has for you.

Use this as your reminder today that God doesn’t see you as the world sees you. He is not fazed by age-restrictions or traditional time frames. The Lord is never late and never early, and He wants us to trust His timing.

When you release all the fears about being too young or too old to live a life of purpose and intention, you’re free to experience the fullness of the life God has for you.

Dear Sister, we’ve got you covered! My HOPE for the women who will attend the Wheat + Honey retreat in 2024? Jesus, we believe that whoever is meant to be at this retreat WILL BE THERE. Each year, you are faithful. Each year, you bring the women that need deep refresh, soul rest, and a meaningful reset. With the theme of “KNOWN”, we agree that you want these women to feel seen. All they have to do is show up to the weekend, and you will do the rest of the work! What freedom and comfort that b...

Women from different places, walking in different stages ~ unlikely community? WATCH IT WORK. You’ll bond over vulnerable small group discussions (some may even name their small group squad ~ you know who you are LOL), lounging at the beach club and laughing about who gets the worst sunburn, sitting cozy out on the porches commiserating about the dating app scene (a big yikes), or watching an extraordinary Watercolor beach sunset sharing so much gratitude. Seeing the women that attend experie...

Is it you…Dreaming of a Fulfilling Break from Reality?

January 16, 2024

Are you dreaming of a fulfilling break from reality? Imagine this…First steps on the beach revealed bright white sugary sand against the shimmering emerald waters of the Gulf. Breathing deeply, eyes closing, soaking in the delicious salty air aromas. Digging my toes into the warm sand, grounding myself in a delightful way. Letting the sun kiss my skin in a long awaited reunion for this pasty gal, lol. Hearing the crashing of waves, the buzz of laughter, and the soft tones of chatter. Feeling ...
