Daily renewal even at 54


My reading today was 2 Cor 4–one of my favorite chapters in the Bible and a passage which surely fits the passage of yet another year for me.  Today, I celebrated my third 18th birthday and the following words of Paul in 2 Cor 4:16-18 are encouraging to me.

16 That is why we never give up. Though our bodies are dying, our inner man is (spirits are is the wording in New Living but I prefer the phrasing of inner man) being renewed every day.17 For our present troubles are small and won’t last very long. Yet they produce for us a glory that vastly outweighs them and will last forever!18 So we don’t look at the troubles we can see now; rather, we fix our gaze on things that cannot be seen. For the things we see now will soon be gone, but the things we cannot see will last forever.
