Renewed Day by Day

“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 not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.” 2 Corinthians 4:16-18 (NIV)

Thankfully, what we see isn’t all we get. As Christians, faith drives our hope toward something better, even if we can’t see the result. Our journey on Earth, which includes hard knocks and heartache, is molding us into a perfect soul creation, for God’s Kingdom.   
Renewed day by day!
