Deuteronomy 9:1-10:11; Ecclesiastes 11:1-12:14; Luke 9:1-17

Even to your old age I am he; and even to hoar hairs will I carry you: I have made, and I will bear; even I will carry, and will deliver you. Isaiah 46:4

When I was younger I often heard older people say, “Growing old isn’t for sissies.” I suppose another way to put it would be that, “It is only for the brave.” Certainly aging brings unique challenges to our life journey. But isn’t it just one more of life’s seasons to trust fully to our Lord? Then we’ll see that triumphant aging is the lot of the one who trusts the Lord. He will bear; He will carry; He will deliver. —Ken Gross

Trusting as the moments fly,
Trusting as the days go by;
Trusting Him whate’er befall;
Trusting Jesus, that is all. —Edgar P. Stites
