(September 5, 2021) Samuel Thomas (* Note: Not real name but good friend of Dr Robert and Pr Maureen McQuillan) praises God…
As I reflect over the last few years, I recall being advised by quite a few folk that I was too old (I’m now 64) to work any longer, especially due to medical issues.
What? I thought, believing that Jesus Christ wants me to share his good news until I die… especially still in the work force!
I had been a senior consultant with a multinational company specialising in sales and customer service for about 10 years. Prior to this position I was an executive, real estate consultant and franchise owner for over 20 years.
My faith in Jesus Christ has been front of mind and spirit for most of my life.
Refusing to accept the negatives
I refused to think that Jesus Christ wanted me to quit job hunting and sought advice and prayers from a few Christian friends.

Recently I’ve been in hospital undergoing surgical procedure. In these days of Covid-19 when we’ve been thankful for nursing/medical staff it gave me a ‘ringside’ seat as I received such excellent care. I believe the skill and knowledge these folk display is a gift from God.
My need for a surgical ‘repair’ caused me to reflect on a local BBC television programme titled The Repair Shop. People bring what very often are precious yet old, broken, well-worn deteriorated items for repair – the most recent catching my attention was a RAF chaplain’s WW2 travelling communion set.
A team of master craftsmen and women lovingly, carefully, and painstakingly use their skills to repair and restore these items. In some cases, the repair work is of such high-quality that the owners are brought to tears at the results.
My own recent days of ‘restoration’ had me reflecting on Ezekiel 34: 16, ‘I will seek that which was lost and bring again that which was driven away and will bind up that which was broken and will strengthen that which was sick.’
