2 Corinthians 4: 16-18
Therefore we do not lose heart. Although outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.
It is hard sometimes for me to believe I have joined the ranks of the “older ladies” at church. Truly, it is inside that I feel so young. Good or bad, I feel young in my Christianity. I can’t imagine ever feeling “finished“ with working on my relationship with God. I make so many mistakes. I plan to continue transforming until I am no longer able to do so. And after I am no longer able, God will bring me to Him, or He will dwell in me, until it is my time.
Father God, I am so thankful. I am sorry for all of my sins, intended and unintended. I am thankful you never have given up on me. Amen
