“Do not cast me off in the time of old age; forsake me not when my strength is spent. For my enemies speak concerning me; those who watch for my life consult together” (Psalm 71:9-10)

Some will wait until you are weak to come against you. Do not fear, but trust in the Lord who has purpose for everything. He who watches over you is aware of every difficulty you will face. Yes, He will allow what He allows, but never think this means that He is not fully in control of every moment. Look to the One who created all things and know He who is faithful prevails.

It is hard in times of difficulty to know that you are there. My mind knows this, but my heart wavers. Guide me, O Lord, to look to You regardless the circumstances and grant that inner strength that upholds me despite the failing body of old age. Lead me regardless of the physical circumstances of this world to know that You are faithful in all things and at all times.

Lord Jesus, though young, You were led to the cross and made weak for all of our sakes. Guide me now and always to not be dependent upon myself or my circumstances; but to look to You and know that You will lead me through everything that will come. Help me overcome my doubts, and even when weak, live strong in the faith You have given me. Lead me to be ever faithful. Amen.
