Devotion on Struggles and Challenges, Relationship to God, Psalm 71:17–18. 2 pages.

O God, from my youth you have taught me, and I still proclaim your wondrous deeds. So even to old age and gray hairs, O God, do not forsake me, until I proclaim your might to another generation, your power to all those to come (Psalm 71:17–18).

Sometimes life is hard even for "more mature" Christians. Health issues and sometimes the rounds of doctor visits are never ending. Visits to hospitals and sick friends increase. Visits to the funeral home occur far more often, and even in the "golden years" Christians may suffer attacks from enemies because of their faith.

It is difficult to proclaim God's wondrous deeds when we are feeling down and out, but this is just what our souls need.
