I have not been working since 1996. November, 1996 to be exact. People have often asked me, “What do you do with yourself?” “How do you keep yourself occupied?” Let me assure all of you, I have never had a problem keeping my days filled since leaving work. I’m coming to the conclusion, if you were busy before you retired, you’re going to be busy after you retire. The big difference between now and then, He has filled my life with contentment, peace, and joy.
If you’re afraid of being bored or not having enough to do, just ask God what you can do to keep busy. He will have plenty of suggestions!! And each one of them will make you feel better about yourself. You can be certain you won’t ever get bored!!
I can honestly say, I look forward to every day with eager anticipation and a sense of excitement wondering what adventure He is going to fill my day doing. When you let Him permeate your life along with being at the helm of your ship, life is never dull!!
