thirty and 1/2 years…

It’s the celebration of our thirty and 1/2 year anniversary…
and he talks about how we fight against the aging process…
until one day… it’s just accepted…
and you become OK with fatter… slower… tired-er…

And I wonder at what he says…
because I was there a few years ago…
but not now…

Then he talks about growing old…
facing death… worry… fear…
and I say…  You don’t have to… there’s another way…

He says… You have so much faith…
I say… It’s just the truth…

And the truth in Jesus…
is never dying…
never fearing…
and having access to indestructible joy

There were times…
when it was a struggle to believe…
but the more I trust…
the more I obey…
the more I rest in Him…
the more I understand the truth…

I know we’ve only had…
thirty and 1/2 years…
because He intervened…

And partly because of the thirty and 1/2 years…
proof of His promises…
I know all the rest is true too…

Therefore we do not lose heart,
but though our outer man is decaying,
yet our inner man is being renewed day by day.
2 Corinthians 4:16 NASB95

Amen…
and I thank Him…
for thirty and 1/2 years…
