Laughter

 

Hard pressed
barren

seemingly running
out of time

yet we can joy
in Jesus

knowing His ways are
lovingkind.

**********

You establish the gift of laughter.

“The LORD kept His word and did for Sarah exactly what He had promised. She became pregnant, and she gave birth to a son for Abraham in his old age. This happened at just the time God said it would. And Abraham named their son Isaac. Eight days after Isaac was born, Abraham circumcised him as God had commanded. Abraham was 100 years old when Isaac was born.”

“And Sarah declared, ‘God has brought me laughter. All who hear about this will laugh with me. Who would have said to Abraham that Sarah would nurse a baby?  Yet I have given Abraham a son in his old age!’ “

Genesis 21:1-7

Old Age and the Ageless One

“They shall still bear fruit in old age;
They shall be fresh and flourishing,
To declare that the LORD is upright;
He is my rock, and there is no
unrighteousness in Him.”   Psalms 92:14-15

Jesus is our fountain of youth.

Lord, we thank You for never considering us to be too old for You.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

We see the signs
of aging

we hear the words
“too old”

but  Holy Spirit
doesn’t retire

once He’s taken
a hold.
