Every year I’m getting older.
Now I’m experiencing physical changes due to aging–I’m not as agile as I used to be. I really have to watch what I eat, especially when it’s late.
After a run, more noticeable aches and pains.
And no, it’s not just in my head. My aging body knows the difference.
Now I’m working on a better perspective as I age–aging to the glory of God. Paul says, “So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God” (1 Cor. 10:31). I’ll add aging in the “whatever you do.”
As I age, my perspective on life changes. It’s the truth of 1 Corinthians 13:11. Or as they say, the closer I get to the grave (in the perspective of aging), my mind tends to turn to more eternal matters.
I may not be able to enjoy the advantages of a young body anymore, but I’m learning that there’s so much more to life than youth, and that I can actually enjoy aging–with a mind set on aging to the glory of God.
