They will be standing firm
Like a flourishing tree planted by God’s design,
Deeply rooted by the brooks of bliss;
Bearing fruit in every season of their lives.
They are never dry, never fainting,
Ever blessed, ever plentiful. Psalms 1:3 [Passion Translation]

This verse is from the Passion TranslationThe Passion Translation says of itself:

The Passion Translation is a groundbreaking attempt to re-introduce the passion and fire of the Bible to the English reader. It doesn’t merely convey the original, literal meaning of words. It expresses God’s passion for people and his world by translating the original, life-changing message of God’s Word for modern readers.

As you can see from Ps. 1.3, they do accomplish their mission of bringing “passion and fire” to the Scriptures.  Here I particularly like: Bearing fruit in every season of their lives.  They are never dry, never fainting.

This is something that God does.  We don’t need to spend a lot of time worrying whether we will bear fruit when we get to an age in which we think we won’t bear fruit.  Our responsibility is to draw ever closer to the Lord, God’s responsibility is to make sure that we bear fruit.  The apostle Paul put it this way:

And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.” (Philippians 1:6, ESV)

You are planted by God’s design, dear reader, why would he abandon you to dry up and wilt away?
