I recently joined my husband, Mark, at a dinner to share in a new program, Halftime, offered to the men of our church. The purpose of the group is to challenge men to consider whether they want success or significance in the second half of their careers. At my house this is a regular topic of conversation because of the book,The Purpose Driven Life. I liked the suggestions of the speaker for discovering where God may be leading you at this stage of life, male or female. He asked two questions – what have you achieved and what do you deeply care about? This translates into competence and passion. When these two are combined with serving God, the possibilities are exciting. The challenge is to test some of our ideas using what we know and what we care about and then allow God to take those humble beginnings and shove us where He planned for us to go. For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. Ephesians 2:10 (NIV) Making a difference for the Kingdom – now that is success!
