Embracing the Journey: 50 is Only Middle Age if You’re Planning to Live to be 100

Embracing the Journey: 50 is Only Middle Age if You’re Planning to Live to be 100 – Life is a magnificent journey, filled with countless opportunities for growth, joy, and purpose. As Christians, we believe that every stage of life is meaningful and has a divine purpose. When it comes to reaching the age of 50, some may view it as a midpoint, halfway through the journey of life. However, as believers, we can approach this milestone with a different perspective, understanding that 50 is only middle age if we are planning to live to be 100. In this blog post, we will explore how our faith can shape our perception of age and inspire us to embrace each stage of life as a gift from God.

Embracing the Journey: 50 is Only Middle Age if You're Planning to Live to be 100 - Life is a magnificent journey, filled with countless opportunities for growth, joy, and purpose. As Christians, we believe that every stage of life is meaningful and has a divine purpose. When it comes to reaching the age of 50, some may view it as a midpoint, halfway through the journey of life. However, as believers, we can approach this milestone with a different perspective, understanding that 50 is only middle age if we are planning to live to be 100. In this blog post, we will explore how our faith can shape our perception of age and inspire us to embrace each stage of life as a gift from God.

Shane Phillips our Worship Leader at church says “50 is only middle age if you are planing to live to be 100.” Since I am closing in on the end of my 40’s in a few years I figured I’d make an early blog post on that. Maybe revisit this blog post in a few years.

Aging: A Blessed Journey:

Age is a gift from God, a testament to His faithfulness and love for us. Each passing year is an opportunity to grow in wisdom, deepen our relationship with God, and serve Him with greater fervor. Instead of focusing on the number, let us celebrate the experiences, lessons, and relationships that have shaped us throughout the years.

A Renewed Perspective on Midlife:

Midlife is often associated with a sense of transition and reflection. However, as Christians, we can view it as a season of renewed purpose and passion. Rather than seeing it as a downhill slide, we can see it as an uphill climb, a time to reassess our goals, dreams, and aspirations in light of God’s calling for our lives.

The Fulfillment of Purpose:

God has a unique purpose for each of our lives, regardless of our age. As we reach the age of 50, we can reflect on the first half of our lives and discern how God has worked through us. We can seek His guidance and direction for the second half, asking Him to reveal His purpose and use us for His kingdom in even greater ways.

Investing in Relationships:

One of the most significant aspects of life is the relationships we build along the way. Our 50s can be a time to invest in meaningful connections with family, friends, and the wider community. By nurturing these relationships, we can leave a lasting impact on the lives of others, demonstrating God’s love and grace through our actions. Invest in others by discipline making!

Embracing Spiritual Growth:

Our journey of faith is not confined to a particular age or season. At 50, we can deepen our spiritual growth, seeking a closer walk with God and a greater understanding of His Word. Let us commit ourselves to prayer, studying Scripture, and participating in fellowship, knowing that our spiritual growth is a lifelong process.

Conclusion:

As Christians, we have the privilege of viewing life through the lens of faith. We recognize that age is not a limitation but an invitation to embrace God’s purpose for our lives fully. Reaching the age of 50 is not the end of the road; it is a midpoint on the incredible journey of faith. By entrusting our lives to God, seeking His guidance, and embracing each stage as a gift, we can live purposefully and joyfully, knowing that our best years are yet to come. So, let us celebrate the present and eagerly anticipate the future, as we walk with our Savior, following His lead every step of the way.

  1. Amen! Great words of wisdom and truth! I began my blog, when turning 50 (I’m 53 now). I was diagnosed with a rare and terminal Stage 4 cancer~given 3-5 years with treatment. God is our ultimate healer! HE knows! None of us are guaranteed tomorrow. I have the beauty of knowing glory is waiting~I bet my life on it! Whether I have 50 more, one more, or 10, I’ll embrace the time I’m given! What a gift! Many blessings to you!!
