Boomers, Where are Your Booming Voices?

Boomers, Where are Your Booming Voices?

Where are your booming voices

Boomers Where are your Booming Voices? This blog post is to encourage my fellow Baby Boomers.  You were born for such a time as this, you’ve not come this far, to only come this far.   I declare that you are living long, and living strong upon the earth and that you will not be taken out early, but you will live out every bit of God’s purpose for putting you upon the earth.  I break off any lies the enemy may be pronouncing over you and I declare You are not barren, but you will continue to birth and produce fruit in your latter years!  God has called you to Birth Holy Things for His Kingdom in Jesus’ name! You will roar out your testimony and overcome in Jesus’ name!

Revelation 12:11 {KJV) And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death

Just a few facts I wanted to share that I found: The Phrase “Baby Boomers” refers to a group of persons who were born between 1944 and 1964.  We are currently between the ages of 55-75.  According to statistics, there are approximately 76 million of us in the United States.   So what does that mean to me?  The statistics to me only brings excitement because I think of all of the things we’ve been through from the past  5 ½ to 7 ½ decades, all of the knowledge and wisdom we’ve gained, and our potential to teach our children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, all others throughout our generations. We have much to teach the coming generations!

Don’t get me wrong, that is not to say that the generations after us doesn’t have much that we must learn as well, but many of the things we have experienced, learned, and acquired are sadly being lost and the following generations will not benefit from our lessons and blessings unless we are willing to be the “Booming Voices”, much like that of John the Baptist in the wilderness!

The root word of Boomers is Boom and I wanted to give a summary of the word Boom’s definition.

The word Boom is a noun that refers to a long arm or bar that is used to attach a sail for a boat, or as an extended arm that is used to contain.  It also can refer to a long extended pipe that is used to transfer from one vessel to another such as fuel from one plane to another.

Used as a plural word it is very interesting to me and what caused me to write this article/blog post.

Booms or Boomed is a loud, deep, resonant sound.   The word’s synonyms are reverberation, resonance, thunder, roaring, echoing, pounding, rumble, bellow, blast.

 

So I ask again Boomers, where is your Booming voice?

Where are your long arms being extended? Have you lost hope of catching a new wind in your sails so as to reach out to your following generations and take them on a journey? Will you share with them what is in your hearts and spirit and give them your life experiences and stories as a precious gift.  Where is your loud, deep, resonant sound or voice to share your life’s experiences and lessons? Where is your reverberation, your resonance, your thunder, your roaring, your echoing, your pounding, your rumble, your bellow, your blast that needs to be heard and felt throughout this generation and to the ones to come?

 

Has your Booming voice been hushed, stilled, or weakened because you thought no one would listen?  I say to you, it’s not so much about being loud, as it is about being heard.  Shout your story from the rooftop, shout your testimony and your life’s accomplishments until someone listens.  Yes, shout out even your disappointments, mistakes and trials, because as the bar that carries fuel to one plane to another, you are a vessel being poured out someone who needs what you have. You are a vessel created from God the Potter’s own hands to be emptied out for this generation and to all those to come!

 

It ain’t over yet Baby Boomer, you’ve got too much inside of you! So I ask again, Boomers, Where are your Booming Voices?

 

You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream. ̶ C.S. Lewis

A Blast from the Past

old man winter

In my neck of the woods which is right outside of Atlanta, Georgia our winter season has been practically null and void.  We’ve had warm days practically all winter with just a few exceptions which amounted to a week or two.  So we are lulled into thinking the wonderful days of early Spring were only going to get warmer and more beautiful as the jonquils, crocus, wild cherry trees and Bradford pears were all bursting with vibrant color and blooms.  The azaleas were hanging with full bodied, fragrant blooms as well, when right in the mist of our early spring utopia celebration we have the arrival of an unwanted visitor, a Blast from the Past whose name is Old Man Winter! Isn’t this just how life goes?

Life is like a weather pattern!  Some days are warm and sunny with nothing but blue skies and happiness.  In those times you are more productive and you finally feel as if you are making steps forward in progress toward your Dream Future,  But……Yes a big old But comes creeping in. Suddenly you’re Old Man Winter arrives out of the dark shadows to lie to you and tell you that you can’t go any further.

Your Old Man Winter may have another name such as Old Rejections, Old Defeating Mindsets, Old Defeating Habits or Old Regrets but Regardless of the names of your dark days or demons, they are a blast from the past that tries to hinder or delay you right now and in the future!

When the blast from your past arrives how do you handle it?  Do you relive all of the mistakes in your past, all of the habits that have kept you going around the mountain like the Israelites in the wilderness?   Do you then beat yourself up and say, “Well, evidently I wasn’t meant to have anything better.   I wish I would have done things differently, but this is how I’ve always been and this is how I have always handled things.”

Aren’t you tired of going around and around in circles?  Do you want to seriously go forward?  Do you not recognize the demons of your past that only serve to hinder, delay, lie to you and ultimately blind you to  what God has really placed inside of you to produce which is a wonderful life and future?

Jeremiah 29:11 (King James Version) For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.

One of the first steps to walk out of the past is to recognize that you have an expected end created by God himself just for you! That you are not alone and that God loves you! You do not live in the past!   You are priceless to Him! You are valuable and He thought you were so worth it that Jesus laid down His life for you so that you could have a new bright future! I hope that you will accept what He has done for you.  If you do, I promise you, your life and future will change. Once you accept Jesus into your heart, you will have the courage and the authority to finally put your past behind you!

You have the authority and the courage to finally deal with the enemies of the past.  God’s word will break off old mindsets, habits, defeating attitudes and lies that have hindered you.    Declare the scripture about your future because God’s word does not return void or idle to Him

Tell the enemies of your past, “I absolutely am not going around that mountain again! I declare, “Jeremiah 29:11 (King James Version) For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.”  I fully intend to live out this expected end or my life, now go from me and never come back in Jesus’ name!”

Finally life is about seasons, but you must know what season you are in.  Realize that even in the winter seasons you are indeed making progress, but that it is much more difficult to see because all of the processes of a winter season are usually buried under ground or in our case in our (heart).  However, do you not know how hard the seeds of all you planted toward your future are working to burst forth for a brighter future for you?  It takes the winter season in our lives for the seeds to become strong and hearty.  You can’t see the process, but it’s happening, like our early signs of Spring!  We get to experience the warmth of early Spring days to keep us encouraged of what is coming!  So I encourage you, just because you do not see or maybe do not know all of the processes a seed takes to shoot forth and produce what is in it, doesn’t render that seed null and void.  All the good things you’ve sowed toward your future will arrive when you realize that you are worth it and that God Himself has it for you!
I hope this article serves as an early spring day and has warmed up your day and heart!  Great things are yours!  Be blessed!
