Old Age


God gave me this verse in my devotional this morning because He knew that I needed encouragement. My devotional was all about I may be old, but I still have seeds to spread, and my seeds are filled with the years of learning that I have spent with God. I really needed this today because I am feeling older than usual. I went to a specialist yesterday because my foot still had not healed from falling six weeks ago. Unfortunately, I have a small fracture on the side of my foot, so now I am wearing a boot. It is cumbersome, meaning that it is hard for me to lift my leg with it on and it makes me feel awkward as I move. But, I can still move around, so that is a praise report! I have to wear it for four weeks and then the doctor will check to see if the bone has mended. So, prayers for that, please? Meanwhile, I am reveling in the fact that although I feel old and awkward with my boot and my quad cane, I know that God is not finished with me yet. He is giving me wisdom and understanding that will help the younger generation understand how important a personal relationship with God is. Blessings to the young ones out there reading this. May you remember to honor the elderly. And blessings to the other elderly who read this. May it bless your spirit as it blessed and encouraged me. God isn’t done with any of us yet! No matter what happens in our daily lives, God walks with us and talks with us if we listen. God bless you!

  1. I have known too many aged people who feel too old to be used by God. Thank you for the reminder that God can use us no matter what our condition or circumstances. It reminds me of Psalm 104:33: “I will sing to the LORD as long as I live; I will sing praise to my God while I have my being.”

  2. God bless you too, Vicklea. I had to wear a boot for something similar, in January and February, and it sure took some getting used to – especially crawling up and down stairs! I suppose it then prepared me for lock-down? No, maybe not! I think the scripture is lovely, and if Job can say it, we all can. I pray that we all continue to learn and increase in wisdom and understanding for as long as the Lord wishes to use us here. x
