Continuing this series of quoted ponderings and Bible verses about growing older. (Other quotes are ~here~ and ~here~.) Today's thoughts are from a devotional published by Our Daily Bread entitled How to Grow Old.
"While the Bible doesn't gloss over the problems we face as we grow older, neither does it paint old age as a time to be despised or a burden to be endured with gritted teeth." ~ Billy Grahamand . . .
Even to your old age and gray hairs . . . I am he who will sustain you. I have made you and I will carry you; I will sustain you and I will rescue you." Isaiah 46:4 NIV
When you ponder the truth of that verse . . . and the beautiful thought that He who made us will carry us even unto death . . . that He will sustain us . . . and rescue us . . . doesn't that give you courage as you contemplate growing older?
