Looking Back: There is a way to rub tarnish off the golden years

(Continued)

Sad to say all this interjection can lead an aging human to disillusionment to the point of so many disappointments that can cause serious depression. No one wants that in his or her life. Don’t we all want to be happy, even though our lot is not what we expected? So we have to rely on promises that are truthful because an empty promise certainly can undermine the origin of it. Where do we look, or better yet, where did I look for a hope of something better?

I don’t want to be a preachy person. I dislike that. But if you really believe that you can help someone by giving them information so they can benefit themselves as it has benefited youm why not do it or at least try? Neighbor love and concern should be something global and if we all help each other then don’t you think we would have a better planet to live on?

That seems like an impossibility especially so with the human race being the way it is, must I reiterate? 

The answer seems to be to petition a higher power with the strength, capability, understanding and complete justice — all based on the godly quality of love. That seems too good to be true but this has been promised. 

Biblical prophecies have been proven reliable There are countless ones relating to a future that solves all of our human problems. Oh, happy day! Something to look forward too and that is exactly what I’m working on: I must be patient along with acquiring stronger faith to have that “expectation of things hoped for” as stated at Hebrews 11:1 in everyone’s Bible.
