Psalm 98:4 “Make a joyful noise to the LORD, all the earth; break forth into joyous song and sing praises!”
This verse is perfectly exemplified by a 90-year-old West Virginia woman whose video went viral on Facebook. The video features a sweet lady singing an old fashioned gospel song and letting the Spirit lead her as she gives her heartfelt performance. The video has been viewed nearly 2 million times, so it’s safe to say her message has gotten out there for the world to see.
What We Can Learn From This Video
As we age, we often feel we have little to offer God. Our bodies fail us, we no longer have the energy of our younger years and we feel “used up” when it comes to what we can do for God. Thankfully, this is just our perception and not in fact a reality. God can use anyone, no matter their physical condition or talents to serve Him. We only have to be willing to be used, like this sweet woman in the video.
Imagine This Woman’s Life Experiences
The joy this woman displays during her performance is heartwarming. You can tell she has spent significant time, during her 90 years of life, getting to know the Father who she whole heartedly praises with her song. Imagine the life experiences she has enjoyed and the trials she has made it through. Regardless of all her trails and her current physical abilities or lack-there-of, her sweet spirit and commitment to the Lord still shines through and is obvious simply by viewing her video. She represents what we all hope to be when we get to that age, a person whose joy of living is still very much intact. Praise be to God!
