‘The glory of old men is…[wisdom and experience].’ Proverbs 20:29 AMP

The Bible says: ‘The glory of old men is…wisdom and experience,’ so listen up to these wise words: ‘Time has a way of catching you unawares. It seems like yesterday I was young, just married and embarking on my new life. Where did the years go? I know I’ve lived them all, and I get ‘glimpses’ of how it was back then…my hopes and dreams. But here it is…the winter of my life…How did I get here so fast? I remember seeing older people and thinking winter was so far off I couldn’t fathom or imagine it. But here it is… my friends are retired and getting grey… I remember when they were young and vibrant, now we’re the ‘old folks’ we never thought we’d become. Each day I find that taking a shower is a real target…I’m unprepared for the aches, pains, and the loss of strength and ability to do the things I wish I’d done and didn’t. If you’re not there yet, let me remind you it’ll be here faster than you think. Whatever you’d like to accomplish in your life…do it today. Don’t put it off…There’s no guarantee you’ll see every season of life, so say all the things you want your loved ones to remember. Your life is a gift from God, how you live it is your gift to Him and ensuing generations.’

Taking a Faith Step

Sweaty palms. Tight chest. Heart racing. Breath escaping. Body shaking.
