Thoughtful Thursday/Isaiah to the Rescue!

Thursday, August 15, 2013

Getting older has not been easy. At a time when many our age are looking forward to retirement, we are wondering when that may happen for us. Due to physical and financial setbacks, we are not sure. I know that many can retire at 62 (we are not there yet) and some have asked my husband if he will. Things being what they are, that seems to be an impossibility. Two of my brothers retired at 63 and both took on part time jobs. So, life is easier for them, but not uncomplicated. Our country being in the turmoil it is with current economical situations and health care, only causes more questions that can't be answered. Keeping this uppermost in our minds lately, causes much prayer and meditation in the Word of God.

This morning, I was reading in Isaiah 46, NIV, and these words seemed to jump off the page to me. "Even to your old age and gray hairs I am He who will sustain you. I have
made you and I will carry you; I will sustain you and I will rescue you."

That brought tears to my eyes. God has heard our heart's cry for comfort and "rescue." I am not sure how things will work out, but I know they will!

He is Worthy to be Praised!

    You are so right - even though we don't know HOW things will work out, we can be confident that they WILL. Sometimes it's easier for our heads to know that than our hearts!
