A CURE FOR THE AGING?
Gray hair is a crown of glory; it is gained in a righteous life. Proverbs 16:31
Most people hate the aging process because they fail to realize birth is a gift from God, and aging is a work of art. So we go merrily on our way until the concept of time is understood, perhaps that first fine line was the tellng point, whatever happened we now realize, time is no longer a friend to be taken for granted.
Most times the battle begins when our attitude changes about that old saying, I have all the time in the world. How we fare depends on how long it takes us to realize how serious time and the aging process really is.
Some try everything in their power to slow time down, especially seniors. Why not, we all know time is the reason we age, don’t we? What most don’t know, or don’t care to know, and will not accept is, It is what it is, and it’s all up to God?
He said You can do nothing without me. John 15:5 KJV
There are people who are banking on Science to find that one cell that controls the stay 21 forever gene. The overly fit are keeping their heart rate up until it almost burst. I heard it only has so many beats. Oftentimes we do things to keep us forever young that is killing us to no avail. The Pharmacy for these remedies/creations is a testament to that.
I know some of these products appear to do what they say. I think it just looks like it because I believe, God’s Go It All In Control. And I believe the only thing that slows down death is death.
I can understand us wanting to look and smell good, and there are ways. Some dye their hair to gain that elusive youthful appearance, although the package clearly states this product may do this or that if you had or have this or that, among other warnings. But who thinks or care about that when vanity and pride are at the forefront, and who believe Reading is Fundamental anyway?
It would be great if the shelves in the Pharmacies were full of products that affect wisdom, maturity and new opportunities, but there is no fun in that, especially when we are spending all our time and money trying to relive a time that has passed.
The options are, we can grow up and live life as best we can in each season, and perhaps if we stop spending so much time staring in the mirror looking for signs of becoming decrepit, frail, and sick, we can eliminate the worry lines simply by drinking water. A gift from God that can restore, replace and improve, but…
We are quick to buy anti-aging creams while claiming we don’t like the Bread of Life: (Water) God gifted us with this miracle drink that is keeping us alive and we are taking it for granted. Have you ever wondered why you are having so many leg and hand cramps, or itchy dry skin? Have a glass or two. Now you know.
When we can look at our aging selves and embrace this is who we are now while realizing age is not a loss of youth but a growing arsenal of knowledge, we’ll be okay. And once we understand it’s not how old we are, it’s how good we feel, we will be able to do even more. And know, aging isn’t a thief, it’s a way of life.
I love my wrinkles, most times, after all, some of them were smiles. Okay, frowns too.
FYI: The young are no more immune from death than the elders, although they think so. The graveyard is a testament to that. So as we try everything possible to get that youthful glow back, most remain annoyed and that make us look even older.
Other problems besides the loss of time and money, is worry and there is no doubt about it builds stress, plus those memory loss pills didn’t do what it said they would do. That alone help makes us old-looking. Oh well, that’s advertisement for you. May I suggest mind-challenging games.
At some point, we must draw the line and start living in our truth. The Bible tells us in 2nd Corinthians 4:16, So do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day.
There is a reason for this aging thing, and it’s all about The Glory of God, splendor, strength, wisdom, and understanding, not looks. We are all made in the Image of God. And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: Genesis 1:26 What’s wrong with that?
As quite as it’s kept, isn’t it everyone’s goal to live a long and fruitful life? Well, it’s mine, and I know the Only way to get old, is to live. I also know one of the Commandments suggest you Love your father and mother so that your days be long on this earth. You don’t need a pill for that.
Just so you know, Wisdom is with the aged, and understanding in length of days. Job 12:12
Even Jesus Christ started in the womb and aged until he died on the cross, what make you the exception?
It’s Something To Think About!
To God Be The Glory!
