Never Give Up

When I was younger, I was healthy and I didn’t spend much time thinking about God and all that He does for me. But now I am older. My body is aging, and I have more physical problems. This causes me to think more about God and how I can be closer to Him.
Getting older does not discourage me. Paul said in verse 16 of our Bible Reading, “That is why we never give up. Our physical body is becoming weaker, but our spirit inside us is made new every day.” Every day that I am alive, I have new opportunities to learn more about God.
Every morning when I look out the window, I see the sunrise with all its beautiful colors. That fills me with hope. The lake behind my house is quiet and calm. That reminds me of God’s peace. Everything I see is a reminder that God is my Creator and Savior.
As you get older, don’t be discouraged and give up. Look around today and see everything God has made for you.
