Feeling Old


If you aren’t younger than 25, you’ve probably felt old. If you are over 40, you’ve definitely felt it. Feeling old is feeling out-of-step with today’s culture. The fact that today’s culture changes by the day doesn’t help. It takes a lot of effort to feel up-to-date and caught up with the modern “lingo” and jargon of emerging society. Sometimes I care, like when I’m trying to communicate with my kids, and other times I just let it go. I’m getting too old for this.

Thankfully, we don’t have to feel old. While the culture may leave us behind, we are not dead. In fact, we are more alive today than ever thanks to the indwelling power of the Holy Spirit. By Him we are being renewed day by day. By Him we are emboldened to make right choices that please God and not ourselves. We can find life in Him if we seek it.

So what are you chasing today? The “rat race”? The “golden goose”? Or are you chasing after God as He leads us into life renewing service every day? It seems we have choice to make on this Monday. God bless!
