Who redeems your life from the pit, Who crowns you with lovingkindness and compassion;Who satisfies your years with good things, So that your youth is renewed like the eagle. Psalm 103:4-5
When I was 23 I used to think old was maybe 45. Then I got to be 30 and thought maybe it was 55. Fast forward to this baby boomer being, gulp, 62, and now old is a relative thing but a Senior Rate definitely should not be offered until you are 85,right?
Each of us needs to embrace the aging process as it is part of life. It is easier enjoyed when health is maintained, but never the less, part of God's plan in this life. Many sadly do not get a chance to grow old so never bemoan it. Each stage of life brings new joys and new challenges. The good news is God is always there to guide you of you call upon Him.
Isaiah 57:1 says "The righteous perish, and no one takes it to heart; the devout are taken away, and no one understands that the righteous are taken away to be spared from evil." Now I would not go up to someone who has lost a dear family member and say this but it is a word of God in the scripture that does make lots of sense. Just know dear friend that your life matters no matter how old or young you are so enjoy it!
PRAYER: Lord you are good and your mercies endure forever. I thank you for the joys and yes even heartaches in my life because you have a plan and a purpose. Help me learn to enjoy all the days of my life you have given me here on this Earth. In Jesus' name. Amen.
