Feeling Useless

They shall still bear fruit in old age; They shall be fresh and flourishing, (Psalm 92:14)

  • We see younger or more able men and women doing extraordinary things that we cannot do. They can; we can’t. That is how it is.

  • It is easy to feel useless when we can’t do the things we were once capable of doing. But we can love and we can pray. These are the works that time and experience have prepared us to do well.

  • Love is the very best gift we have to give to God and to others. It is no small matter, for love is the means by which we fulfill our whole duty to God and our neighbor.

  • Our love for one person may seem to be a small action, but love is the greatest gift of all (1 Cor. 13:13). And we can pray.

  • Paul encouraged the Colossians to “continue earnestly in prayer, being vigilant in it with thanksgiving” (Col. 4:2). Our prayers are a powerful force in the universe!

  • Love and prayer are mighty works indeed, the mightiest works for any of us. Why? Because our God, who wants to use us, is an all-loving and all-powerful God.

  • Begin the day with God; kneel down to Him in prayer; lift up your heart to His abode, and seek His love to share. God pours His love into our hearts that it might flow out to others.
