Encouraging Word For The day
Do you have those mornings that you wake up and think, " Hmmmm, I can tell that I'm just not as young as I used to be"? We can feel your pain. It's not only physical, but mental as well. At least we can now blame our "airheaded mistakes" on being over 40. Right? It's frustrating to look at our own sin and wonder if we are ever going to get it right. Here is a verse that reminds us of the truth. Yes we are getting older, but even through pain and mistakes he is renewing our mind. That is the kind of God we serve. Preparing us to one day live with him forever.
"Therefore we do not lose heart. Though 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 on not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal. 2 Cor 4:16-18.
The key phrase in the verse is.... fix our eyes on what is unseen. (Not on all of the negative that is easy to see) That is our Hope!!!!! There are many unseen things he still wants to accomplish in us, guiding us step by step and day by day. One of our favorite songs we sing speaks of this truth. It's called "Day By Day". Take a listen and be encouraged today.
We love you,
Denise, Shelley, and Leigh
