Aging has its difficulties and heartaches.  Declining health and disease chip away at our physical strength and have a tendency to deplete our mental and emotional stamina. I am encouraged by God’s words through Paul in 2 Corinthians 4:16-17,

“Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away,  yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our lives and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all.  So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen,  since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.”

Be encouraged!  Be renewed inwardly, day by day! Use your Golden Years to speak or write golden nuggets of Truth to those whom God puts in your path.  Make sure your affairs are in order to support Kingdom causes.  Your Sunset Years are the time to speak and write THE BLESSING to the next generation.  What an important time in life!  YOU have an opportunity to radiate God’s power, peace, presence and purpose to your family, friends, neighbors, caregivers, doctors, and even first responders when you focus on the eternal glory that far outweighs our momentary troubles. Finish strong!
