God doesn’t see us as ‘too old’

About a year ago I found myself struggling with pain in my knees and hips. Standing up from a chair was difficult, and climbing stairs was so challenging that I had to take two steps per stair. And walking was hard enough that I considered buying a cane. 

I knew these problems are often considered normal for older people. Ads touting braces and joint replacement for seniors are common, and I’d frequently heard friends and relatives talk and even joke about the pains and problems of aging. One friend remarked, “We might as well laugh at what we can’t change.”

Because that comment suggested that God isn’t omnipotent, it made me stop and think. Is time more powerful than the Almighty? Is it possible to “age out” of divine Love’s omnipresent care?
