3 Ways to Prove Age is Only a Number
Why do people feel so ashamed in a season of life?
There is SO much to celebrate, including the number tagged to that lovely name and body of yours!
There is something SO charismatic and precious about seasons.
My favorite is the never-ending change and uniqueness to each change.
I came across this verse the other day, "Don't let anyone think less of you because you are young. Be an example to all believers in what you say, in the way you live, in your love, your faith, and your purity." - 1 Timothy 4:12
SIDE NOTE: do things that keep you feeling young. Something I like to focus on is Tending the Temple.
Think about it. What keeps you young? Energized? Inspired? Hold onto that.
And also these three ways to prove your age is a number, my friend…
1.) Remember King David
Did you know that King David (YES Little David that defeated mammoth Goliath) was but merely a shepherd boy? The Lord called on David when he was 16. SIXTEEN!
AND BECAME KING AT 30 YEARS OF AGE!
This is confirmation of God using WHOMever and WHENever and HOWever He so well choses.
2.) Remember Sarah
And how can we forget Abraham and Sarah? There story gives me goosebumps to this day.
Picture your great-grand parents having a child.
Don't be fooled into thinking that only mature godly people can spread God's message.
God works through people of all ages.
3.) Remember John
John was a devoted apostle of Jesus. At 16, He first began following John the Baptist and heard of Jesus then soon denied himself and followed Christ.
He took instruction and waited at the foot of Jesus as he was crucified while consoling His mother, Mary.
John 21:24 Jesus talks about his beloved son, his apostle John and his testimony of faith and faithfulness.
Live in a way that honors God:
Take action on what's missing in your life and others will see God's work through YOU.
So today, make a lasting impression, despite your age or your season. You can spread kindness by leading as an example.
-Love and embrace who you are,
-Appreciate the life God blessed you with today, and strive to be better tomorrow.
Pay attention to the smallest of details each day: the barista making your coffee, the time spent with family in the morning, nature, and the people hustling around you.
Stand fitter and stronger today.
