Prose on "The Young"


Somebody's got to be young at all times to run with God's favor and show us how to dream.  The "hope of the young" knows God does not forsake us.  The hope of the young allows for His dreams to take us to high places and keep our hearts healthy.

We're all moving on and growing much older and wiser, yet slower, and deeper in dreams.

The old take the past and cover the young with wisdom and knowledge and favor and "seeds".  The old are the soldiers, the young take great heed from generals and captains gone on, hewn from steady stone before them.  They take all their words and gird up their knees.

As the battle continues, we need the young; the old need the young ones to fall on their faith and look up to Jesus as, from the old, they've surely seen (for the old were once young).

The young are anointed with fervor and power to run all the faster and bring generations to much victory.  Indeed, in order for Life to bring us all to God's Throne, somebody has to be young.
