2 Corinthians 4:16. Therefore we do not despair, but even if our physical body is wearing away, our inner person is being renewed day by day.

Sometimes I’m tempted to fall back on an older devotion I’ve written and posted. I find I can’t do that. Each and every day I am different from the day before, I am constantly changing; changing physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. Some of these changes show more than others. We don’t usually notice our cells dying but some die every day. We can see loss through shed skin or hair in a comb or brush. Our minds can learn and/or forget things each day. Our emotions are forever changing. Our spirits are under the schooling of God’s Holy Spirit. We either grow closer to God and more into His image or we grow further apart and become less like His image. The choice is ours. For Him to be renewing His image in us each day we must be available and pliable. We have a part in the renewing. God has provided us with a text-book (the Holy Bible), a teacher (His Holy Spirit) and a class room (life experiences). We can continue to live in the past or move on in growth of newness each new day God gives us. Let’s keep moving on with God and growing into His image.
