I once was young, but now I’m getting older. How do you know you are getting old without stating your age? When your sentence starts with, “I used to …” Yes, you had more strength, more stamina, and more hair. However, now you have more wisdom. What I used to call lazy, I now call“energy conservation.”
The adversary is ruthless. He looks for weakness and goes for it. Sometimes, it’s just little jabs that don’t hurt too much but take a toll on you.

“For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.”(Hebrews 4:12)
