Read Psalm 92:6-15
[The righteous] will still bear fruit in old age, they will stay fresh and green, proclaiming, “The LORD is upright; he is my Rock, and there is no wickedness in him.”- Psalm 92:12, 14-15 (NIV)
I have many questions that stream through my mind about many things. I visited a home recently that specializes in dementia. I left with questions. I still have questions. ❓❓❓
I would like to share a story about a man in his late 80’s still in his home named; Archie. I was told he was diagnosed with Alzheimers. I spoke with him a few times and he did seem rather confused. His wife a younger woman being his caretaker became ill and died shortly thereafter. Later in conversation he was driving again and going out on his own. He has minimum care in his home as he continues to live there and enjoy his family, friends and church.
I asked him, what happened? He said; “I prayed 🙏🏻to be better and God heard.”
I still have many questions as I ponder how to pray for those older and suffering with dementia. But, if I pause and meditate on this scripture I read, “the righteous.”
