"In the beginning you laid the foundations of the earth, and the heavens are the work of your hands. They will perish, but you remain; they will all wear out like a garment. Like clothing you will change them and they will be discarded. But you remain the same, and your years will never end." -- Psalm 102:25-27
It's sad to watch age take its toll on loved ones. As the years pass their strength of body and clarity of mind slowly slip away. Ability gives way to disability. The aging process wears out everything and everyone, so what can we depend on or to whom can we turn?
It has been said there are two things that everyone must face: Taxes and death. Along with this the Psalmist tells us, while the foundations of the earth and the heavens are God's work, they too will perish. Yet, we are encouraged with the fact that the Lord remains the same and his years will never end. He is dependable.
You can be discouraged by the changes in life that rob your energy and strength. Or you can lean on someone who remains the same throughout this life into the next. Why not turn to the Lord from day to day and find strength for your journey?
