We were created for God and just as fish are in despair out of water so the human soul is in despair when it is outside of fellowship with God. He is the source of true fulfilment and our greatest pleasure in life is to glorify and enjoy Him forever.
When circumstances are overwhelming you have a choice. You can focus on your problems, or on God. When you focus on God you shift the burden from your shoulders to His, making room for the peace only He can provide.
At the bottom of his life, all crutches removed, David crawled into a cave in the Judean wilderness. He was disillusioned, hurt, lonely, and afraid. It was, up to that time, the lowest moment of his entire life. But God had a whole new direction for him to take.
Just because your skin wrinkles doesn’t mean our walk with God has to shrivel! Here are three attitudes we have about aging, which distract us from celebrating all God has done for us.

When God removes a crutch from our lives, the process is painful, but the result is beautiful. David too went through this process, just like we do.
