You know, God makes no mistakes. I cannot explain to you why he ordained that the first half of your life would be led in a way that looks like you wasted it. Maybe you just lived for money, and you lost your marriage, and you lost your kids. And now you’re 54 years old, and you are all alone and rich and miserable.
I don’t know all the reasons why God would permit that, but he’s got designs in that. And what his offer to you right now is the next 20 years different, useful, forgiven, clean, hopeful, heaven-bound.
