When Warren mentioned during our weekly ministry team call that he was “feeling dusty,” I sensed that this was his way of referencing the physical challenges associated with aging and ill-health. For Warren and his wife, both in their late sixties, 2020 included doctors’ visits, surgical procedures, and the rearranging of their home to accommodate in-home care. They were on the other side of the prime of life and they were feeling it.

One doesn’t have to live long before sensing our inadequacies, imperfections, and weaknesses—physically, intellectually, emotionally, and spiritually. God, in the person of His Son Jesus, stepped into our fallen world and cares for those who experience the liabilities of human existence (Psalm 103:13). Furthermore, David wrote, “He knows how we are formed, he remembers that we are dust” (v. 14). The term dust takes us back to Genesis: “Then the Lord God formed a man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being” (2:7).

Are you feeling dusty these days? Welcome to the realities of earthly living. Remember, however, that when we feel most vulnerable, we’re not left alone. Our compassionate God “knows” and “remembers.” He demonstrated His love to us by sending His Son to provide forgiveness for earthly people like you and me. Whatever life may bring, may we trust in Him.

These encouragement from our daily. Martha Jackson titled today's devotional reading feeling dusty when worn mentioned during our weekly ministry team call that he was feeling dusty.

I sense that this was his way of referencing the physical challenges associated with aging and ill health for Warren and his wife both in their late 60s 2020 included doctors visits, surgical procedures and the rearranging of their home to accommodate in-home care.

They were on the other side of the prime of life and they were feeling it. One doesn't have to live long before sensing our inadequacies imperfections and weaknesses physically and intellectually, emotionally and spiritually. God in the person of his son Jesus stepped into our fallen world, and cures for those who experience the liabilities of human existence. Furthermore, David wrote in Psalm 103 he knows how we are formed.

He remembers that we are dust the term dust takes us back to Genesis 2, where it reads then the Lord God formed a man from the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life and the man became a living being. Are you feeling dusty these days. Welcome to the realities of earthly living. Remember, however, that when we feel most vulnerable were not left alone our compassion.

God knows and remembers he demonstrated his love to us by sending his son to provide forgiveness for earthly people like you and me. Whatever life may bring.

May we trust in today's Our Daily Bread devotional Scripture reading is from Psalm 103 verses 13 through 19. As a father has compassion on his children, so the Lord has compassion on those who fear him, for he knows how we are formed. He remembers that we are dust the life of mortals is like grass. They flourish like a flower of the field, the wind blows over it and it is gone in this place remembers it no more, but from everlasting to everlasting the Lord's love is with those who fear him, and his righteousness with their children's children with those who keep his covenant. Remember, to obey his precepts.

The Lord has established his throne in heaven, and his kingdom rules over all. Let's pray father, though in various ways we feel are limitations I would dust in this hope was to be strong in faith and trust in you.

Thank you Lord it's in Jesus name we pray. Amen.
