“The glory of young men is their strength,
And the splendor of old men is their gray head.” Proverbs 20:29
Most of us don’t realize how strong we are in our youth. We realize that our strength is diminishing about the same time that those pesky gray hairs start cropping up. The cycle of life is inevitable. It goes something like this:
No gray hair = a lot of strength, but wisdom may be lacking
Some gray hair = some loss of strength, some wisdom
A lot of gray hair = great loss of strength and great wisdom.
When our heads are gray, experience and wisdom replace youthful strength. That’s a good thing; it’s God’s design for our lives. Both seasons of life are beautiful when we accept them the way our Creator planned them. When you simply don’t have the strength and stamina you once had, or those gray hairs annoy you, remember the wisdom you’ve acquired over the years. It’s good. It’s all good!
Prayer: Father God, thank you for Your plan and the seasons of life. Help us to appreciate and enjoy every season you give us. Amen!
