It colors our life with joy to see a child ride on daddy’s shoulders, a groom conveying his bride across the threshold, or a piggyback ride given to keep a friend’s feet dry. These are heartwarming examples of being carried. Even more heartwarming is God’s promise to carry, sustain, and rescue us throughout our lifetime – even when we are old and gray. He loves us with a never ending love.
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. Isaiah 46:4
