the glory of youths

As I was working through my second workout yesterday  an older friend came up to me and said something. I took the earbuds out and gasped, “what’s that?”

He said,

The glory of youth!

As he walked away I put my head down and rode just a little harder for the next 35 minutes.

For myself, there’s nothing like being young, strong and fast. Being able to spend hours each day running, climbing, swimming, riding, lifting, pushing and pressing is not something I take for granted. I train with intention and gratefulness, with determination and focus.

The Glory of Youth

The Glory of Youth

“The glory of youths is their strength, but the beauty of the aged is their gray hair.” Proverbs 20:29 

If Wisdom belongs to the Old, then Strength belongs to the Youth.

This is the time for you to be pushing your body. Get off your cell phone and turn off Facebook. Go and find out just how much you can lift, how far you can run, how fast you can sprint, how far you can throw…

One day your strength will fade and you will be left with your grey hair, which in itself is also a beautiful thing!

But this is the time for you to celebrate your youth. Not with wasteful activities that end at 2am, but with powerful lifts and fast legs!

What is the glory of your youth?

What is it that you celebrate?

You are what you celebrate.

Watch these women as they celebrate their own youth.
