Time Realized

Do not cast me away when I am old; do not forsake me when my strength is gone. Psalm 71.9

We live in an age where those who are older are often shoved aside. This is true in the professional world with employees. This is also true in churches which often find themselves pandering to those who are younger or more financially powerful, while forgetting the aging and powerless. Let’s remember that God cares what happens to each one of us, no matter status or stature or age.

Almighty God, I know that you will never leave me or forsake me. I believe the promise that nothing can separate me from your love for me in Christ Jesus. But Father, I see so many who are older and forgotten that I must admit that I am frightened that I, too, will face loneliness and feebleness in those last days. Please give me confidence to cast my anxieties on you and trust in your presence. Most of all, Father, I pray that you will be glorified in my body in life and death, in health and sickness, and in youth and age. In Jesus’ glorious name ,Amen.

Eclectics in praise of the Savior. Renderings in prose and poetry, rhyme and free verse. More info available in 'About Me' in my 'Hiding in Plain Site.' There is a small square box with three little dots inside, on the upper right hand side of every blog posted page,at the right side of title banner. Click on those dots to take you to a "hidden" site page with more info provided by me, including "follow" button and "About me." (I didn't design this.It came as-is). Also, WP has a mandatory banner at the bottom of the screen about privacy and cookies policy that blocks the visibility of a "follow" button that pops up under a "close and accept' of the privacy agreement. You must click the 'close and accept' to see the follow button. Things are becoming more complicated to navigation with hidden activations and complex instructions.

  1. I may be becoming old and irrelevant but I remain ever joyful! I have all of those same fears but I wouldn’t give up what I have in my relationship with God at this age for a return to youth. In many ways, I feel that I’m finally coming into my own and I like it. Maybe, I’ve just become unteachable but I have never felt so certain of what I believe and why and with that certainty comes abiding faith and enjoyment of the presence of God. The wrinkles are worth it gw!
