Produce Fruit ~ Sunday Devotion
Even in old age they will still produce fruit; they will remain vital and green. Psalm 92:14 (NLT)
No matter your age or stage of life, God has plans for you. Even in your “old age,” you can produce fruit.
I don’t know what your definition of “old age” is, but mine has changed over the years and even day to day depending on how I feel when I get out of bed. Can you relate?
The first time I thought my parents were “old” was when they were in their mid 40s. Now that I’m 50, I’ve changed that thought! But then there were days in my 30s when I felt old and tired as a result of parenting a toddler. You might consider me “old,” when I choose to stay home most weekends and go to bed by 9:00 every evening.
No matter your age, you’re older than someone and that someone probably considers you “old.” Just like I still consider my parents old 😉
Anyway, the point is that no matter your age, and even in your “old age” (whatever that is), you can produce fruit. God has a plan and purpose for you. However, as time goes on, we often shrink back from life. We doubt our abilities. We question our worth. For many women, you’re still worrying about your weight and letting that hold you back from being “vital and green,” as the verse describes you.
You are a necessary part of God’s unfolding story. Don’t let things like age, weight, self-doubt tell you that you can’t still produce fruit. #FaithAndFitness #EmbraceYourAge Click To Tweet
Something that is vital is critical, important, lively, necessary. It (she!) is indispensable. You are important! You are a necessary part of God’s unfolding story. Don’t let things like age, weight, self-doubt tell you that you can’t still produce fruit. When you embrace this age and stage of life, you can start living your best life.
Action Step: Step into your now. Whatever age or stage that is, choose to embrace it. Ask God to heal the parts of your mind and spirit that are making you feel withered and worn out and show you where He wants you to grow and produce fruit.
Bonus tip: Get outside and take a walk. There’s nothing better than a dose of fresh air and movement to make you feel alive and to appreciate the body and breath God has blessed you with. Let Him minister to your spirit while you’re out and guide you to how He wants to use you.
