Isaiah 46:4 - Even to your old age and gray hairs I am he, I am he who will sustain you. I have made you and I will carry you; I will sustain you and I will rescue you.
I just crossed off another day in my calendar. It feels like the days and months pass quickly as I increase in age each year. And more so now that I am old.
Yes, that dreaded word, “old.” But what is considered old? Is it by the months slipping by or can it be because as I age it seems like everything hurts more?
Perhaps it’s because as we age our bones begin to calcify and cause pain in the joints – the dreaded arthritis or bone degeneration.
I know that you don’t have to be old to have arthritis, but it does become more prevalent as you age. Yes, pain does increase with age.

Don’t forget that even as you age, God will sustain you, carry and rescue you. He will also give you the wisdom and discernment you need when making decisions on what treatment to choose to treat your pain condition.
