face lift

You reach a point in middle age and beyond when your physical features start losing the battle with gravity. Everything starts to droop a little and it is understandable to long for youth and the wrinkle-free days. I did a quick online search for "Face lift" and the first site I came to described the problem as "sagging jowls and turkey neck". Who in the world wants to be thought of that way?!! Certainly a Face Lift seems appealing in that light. But we can have spirits that sag as well, whether we are in the middle years and beyond, or whether we are in the smooth and toned skin of youth. But, rather than a face lift we need a face, heart and mind that are lifted up to our Maker. Isn't it good to know that there is a quality of life and of living that transcends the temporary fashion of physical life? Perhaps we need a "Spirit Lift" today by focusing on the promise of life that has been made and kept in the form of our Savior and Redeemer, Jesus! We lift our hearts in thanks and praise to Him and He lifts our hopes to the "wrinkle free" and spotless place of Heaven.
1 Samuel 2:8 He lifts the poor from the dust
and the needy from the garbage dump.
He sets them among princes,
placing them in seats of honor.
For all the earth is the Lord's,
and he has set the world in order.
