Our passage from the Word of God today is Psalms 71:9. It reads, "Cast me not off in the time of old age; forsake me not when my strength faileth."

Our quote for today is from Henry Ward Beecher. He said, “To all who find their days declining, to all upon whom age is creeping with its infirmities, to all whose strength seems steadily to ebb....God seems to take our last things, and as it were, pack them up for our journey. These are tokens that you are approaching land. They are signs that the troubles of the sea are almost over.”

Our problem today is "The Problem of Aging in Your Life" (part 1) from the book, "The Guide to Biblical Counseling" by Dr. Tim Clinton and Dr. Ron Hawkins.
