But thanks be to God who gives us the victory through our LORD Jesus Christ. 1 Cor. 15:57
I walked in to our building with an elderly man a couple nights ago (a different one). He’s probably forty years my senior. Still mobile, still friendly, still classy. As we got on the lift/elevator i asked, “How do you like this cooler weather?” His answer, “I’ve been here 72 years, so I’m used to it.” Not sure I understand, but ok. Now we were at his floor so as the door opened I offered, “I hope you have a good evening.” He left the elevator, turned back and said with a twinkle in his eyes, “You will learn.” And as the doors closed he repeated, “You will learn.” I hope I do.
Proverbs 20:29 says, “The glory of young men is their strength, but the splendor of old men is their grey hair.” This says to me that life has seasons. And I shouldn’t wish this one away. I need to embrace what God has given me, learn, and do my best to walk in the Spirit each day. Today is a gift. This work is a blessing. This conversation with my son is one I’ll wish to repeat one day. This snuggle with my daughter is precious. This moment is God’s destiny for me and He has given all I need to succeed. I know this because He’s given me Himself! Let’s enjoy this season!
We Win!! Danny
