While You Are Young
Seek the Lord while you are young
Seek Him before your eyes dim and you lack vision.
Celebrate the blessings of the Lord before the sun, moon, and stars become dark.
While you are young, enjoy the labor of your hands.
Rest in the Lord before your hands and knees weakened.
Sing joyfully unto the Lord and dance with all your might,
Before your ears deafened to the music of nature.
Explore your youth and find the path to your destiny
Before the almond tree blossoms,
And before the terror of God’s judgment.
While you are young, love yourself!
Appreciate that you are the image and likeness of God.
Care for yourself before the silver cord snap and you return to the dust.
Enjoy, celebrate, sing, dance, explore, love, and live abundantly.
You will receive them all
When you seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness.
Ecclesiastes 12: 1-8; Jeremiah 1:11-14: Matthew 6:33
