Growing Young vs. Old
Lately, I feel my body getting older. I love to exercise, and my stopping point used to be exhaustion, but now I worry about injury and take things slower. Getting older comes with new issues and concerns; however, I would not trade youth for what I have now.
As my years have increased, so has my faith. My relationship with God has grown stronger, and understanding His ways has changed how I live. I have a broader perspective and new vitality in my thinking.
God’s love has given me more love for others and the ability to let go of things that used to entangle me. I forgive more easily and approach things with more understanding. Instead of being defined by my circumstances or accomplishments, I find my confidence as a child of God. Rather than striving to make a name for myself, I surrender to making God known. Choosing to live God’s way provides a new zest for life and satisfaction that I have not found anywhere else.
2 Corinthians 4:16 says, “Do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day.”
God is so good; He even makes getting older a beautiful thing to look forward to.
Let’s grow young together.
