Getting Old

Hello everyone. Usually I do not post a full message at night but I just told my Bride something and decided to write it down and share it with all of you…

This November I will turn 47; may not sound like a real old number but today it hit me…For the first time in my life, I truly feel like an older man…

It’s been a difficult couple years medically and I’m sure between that and the fact I am considerably overweight is not helping, but even with all that I have never felt OLD. Tonight I do….Not sure that is a bad thing because getting old is part of life right? Just a new feeling and one that makes me feel like the sun has begun to set on my life.

I wonder what God has planned for this old guy? I guess the good thing about this new phase which I find myself in is that I am that much closer to living in eternity with the Creator.

Thanks for listening my friends,

Peace and Grace,

David

  1. I was about your age when I started feeling “old” also. Then the Lord reminded me that not everyone gets the privilege of reaching that age, and I remembered the many loved ones who died much younger. I looked around at people who were considerably older than me but who still loved life and were active and vital and decided that, as much as it depends on me, I want to be like them for whatever time I have remaining on this earth. Be encouraged that as you age, you are being blessed in many ways.

  2. At 65, there are still times I forget I’m an adult! I agree, it can be exciting to think that we are getting closer and closer to eternity! I look at younger people, and I’m grateful I have reached the season I am in. There have been so many lessons, experiences, trials โ€ฆ I would NOT want to go back now!

  3. Yeah that feeling hit me like a falling rock from mars when I turned 23 this year. I was like, dang! Just noe I’m gonna reach my 30’s. But I just accepted it for I know I’m forever young in Jesus Christ! ๐Ÿ˜€ so that what makes me sort of forget about my aging in this “temporal” body.
    Stay blessed Dav! ๐Ÿ™‚
