Devotionals Daily: A Year with Jesus

From Right from the Heart by Bryant Wright

OLD AGE AIN’T FOR SISSIES

“And even to your graying years I will bear you! I have done it, and I will carry you; and I will bear you and I will deliver you”. --Isaiah 46:4

Old age sure ain’t for sissies. Based on the book of Ecclesiastes, it seems as though King Solomon would agree. He wrote of how the things we take for granted when we’re young cause us to lose delight in living when we’re old.

Our eyesight grows dim—we start with reading glasses and then move to bifocals. Our hearing grows weak. We’re constantly saying “Huh?” to our spouses. We have time to sleep late, but we wake up early. Our hands start to tremble. Our desire for sex diminishes.

Old age isn’t for sissies. Our bodies just don’t work like they used to. Aches and pains are a daily reality, and morning stiffness is our companion every day as we get out of bed. It can all be very depressing, and without God it can be meaningless. But with God, there is wisdom, strength, joy, and the hope that when the body finally gives out, there is life—real life—in heaven with God. It’s something to remember when you’re young and when you’re old.
