While on the Edge of Beulah Land

If an angel were to reveal God's plan for my life today, I would?:
a. ask a lot of questions.
b. wonder if I had any say about it.
c. rejoice that God could use me.
d. worry about my ability to do it.
e. run away scared.
f. tell the angel I would rather not know my future.
(Serendipity Bible 10th Anniversary Edition, page 1429).

The answer to this question depends upon my disposition as a recent retiree.  Do I at this point wish to retire from essential service?  Do I want to disappear in an RV camper and park by a secluded fishing hole or do I wish to remain a hard worker in the matrix of life?  There is no doubt in my mind as to the answer for this--I wish to remain an earnest player within the matrix of life.  Now the angel could say God wants me to spend my last days in secluded peace in a retirement home.  The Lord knows that this would depress me.  I do not feel I am ready now for a retirement home--however I am well aware that retirement homes are no doubt one of God's mission fields.  Of all the above possible responses, the one that would hold true no matter what is "ask a lot of questions." How is this going to happen and how can I effectively advance God's kingdom in this role?  I wish to not only survive but prevail.
