Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day.
The challenges of aging are tough.
We begin to realize our mortality. Our bodies can fail us and we can't do what we once could do.
As Christians, we know that our aging actually brings us closer to home and to the time when we get our immortal bodies that are not subject to decay. God can help us use these physical realities to be heavenly reminders of what is important.
We can be renewed by the Spirit and be more like our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. So let us not lose heart!
Heavenly Father, please help me not to be negative or bitter as I grow older. Instead, please renew me and use me to bless others who need to find their way home to you. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
