Mar. 13: Aging Faith

Krishna Roy, 83, lives outside of Washington, D.C.  She has worn many hats in her lifetime—working for the Indian government, the United Nations and a community-based health care clinic, to name but a few.

As she ages, she sees faith as critical to facing life.  “I feel that I have been tested several times, and the kind of faith I grew up with taught me that hope and love are the most important aspects of my life,” she explains.

Roy recalls times when she even fought with others, but faith kept her from becoming bitter or making enemies.  “The tolerance, patience, peace, hope and love from faith have been central to my life,” she concludes.

Believing in God’s goodness and manifesting it to others are our best course of action at any age.

The beauty of the aged is their gray hair. (Proverbs 20:29)

Father, Your love for us is everlasting, and for that we give You praise.
