Growing Old With Your Spouse And Growing Old With God Is A Beautiful Blessing!
Let thy fountain be blessed: and rejoice with the wife of thy youth.
– Proverbs 5:18
As many people throughout history have experienced, growing old with your spouse and growing old with God is an experience that can’t be matched by anything in this world. With early divorces being so dominant nowadays, we sometimes wonder if growing old with your husband/wife will become a thing of the past.
Modern day husbands wonder if their wives will still love them even when it comes to the point in their lives that old age disables them physically and simple tasks around the house become harder and harder. Then, at the same time, women have questions like, “Will my husband still find me beautiful although every year I receive more wrinkles on my face?”
Do not worry!
True love is able to transcend every dimension in this world. The bible says that love is patient and love is kind, making love endure the test of time.
“Love is patient; Love is kind”– 1 Corinthians 13
When both are able to grow old together in the righteous path of God, many blessings are sure to follow. Do not think of these blessings as physical or materialistic blessings. Rather, blessings may come in any form shape and size.
“Gray hair is a crown of glory; it is gained in a righteous life.”– Proverbs 16:31
“They shall still bear fruit in old age; they shall be fresh and flourishing”– Psalm 92:14
Enjoy each other’s transition to old age. Remind yourself that grey hairs and wrinkles are a visual reminder that you two have made beautiful moments and memories together. 🙂
