Two Directions

Hi, I’m Joni Eareckson and it’s not easy getting older.  But the Bible has encouragement for me when it says in Second Corinthians, “Though outwardly we are wasting away (now here comes the encouraging part), inwardly we are being renewed day by day.”  Oh friend, from that verse I can see that, as I get older and life gets harder, I'm moving in two directions at the same time.  On one hand, I'm outwardly wasting away – with aches and pains and physical strength that diminishes with the passing years.  But as we daily walk with Christ, our spiritual strength increases.  I'm renewed spiritually day by day as I run to God for strength.  This is great news for any person struggling with a disability, or just dealing with the ravages of older age. So, friend, as we face the uncertainty of the future, let’s go to God every day for renewal.  It’s the best way to prepare for the unknown future.
