“So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day.” – 2 Corinthians 4:16
Came across this verse today and got stuck on how we are renewed day by day.
Not renewed now to last for the rest of our life, but renewed each day.
I get so overwhelmed thinking about all the things I have to get done and what I need to do tomorrow and the next day and the next week. It would be like my phone freaking out because it forgot that I charge it every night and it thinks it needs to do all its functions for the next year on the battery it has now.
So as the new year starts I need to focus on taking one day at a time. Figuring out which tasks are a necessity for today and which can be tackled another day, and then leave each task in its prospective day instead of worrying about them all at once.
When I feel like I’ll never get through everything I need to remember that each day I will get renewed, I don’t have to do it all on the strength I have right now.
I do have to make an effort to be renewed. God is ready to renew us, but He needs us to take the time to be with Him, so that He can.
So if you are feeling like you will never get through just stop for a minute and let Him recharge you. Then keep on pushing through with today’s needs remembering you will have new strength for tomorrow’s if you give Him the chance.
