“I lift my eyes toward the mountains. Where will my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth. Psalm 121:1 & 2
I've never seen myself as 'old'. My family has allowed me to feel young with laughter, midnight runs for ice cream, silly texts and hanging out at the beach. We let each other know how much we love each other. So can you imagine how shocked I am when no one outside my family sees that? They don’t perceive how young I am on the inside. To me, being viewed as old is synonymous with useless.
But God …
His feelings for me (or you) don’t shift due to my (our) abilities or inabilities. He loves us exactly where and how we are. We can’t impress Him nor can we fool Him. He sees our heart.
I am now 65 years old and my Lord reminds me every year, my soul is ageless.
People can choose to see the old lady and not my young heart. They can put limitations on what they think I can or cannot do. But my Lord says He is not done using me. And when change comes I can lean on Him. His Word and His direction are where I want to be.
“So we can confidently say, ‘The Lord is my helper; I will not fear. What can man do to me?” Hebrews 13:6
