50 years ago, archaeologists discovered a 2000-year-old jar containing palm seeds. They planted one of the seeds in 2005, and it grew a healthy palm, which produced dates (source).
Recently, the Lord led my husband and me (both in our 60's) to leave our present home near children and grandchildren to move to work with a ministry in another state.
After 20+ moves during our 45 years of marriage, we thought we'd moved our last, but God had different ideas.
And He gave us the most beautiful promise one morning when we were reading Psalm 92:
"The righteous will flourish like a palm tree ... planted in the house of the LORD, they will flourish in the courts of our God. They will still bear fruit in old age, they will stay fresh and green, proclaiming, “The LORD is upright; he is my Rock, and there is no wickedness in him.” Psalm 92:12-15 NIV
Take time today and ask God to help you bear fruit, whatever your age.
