Broken down, in need of an oil change, but renewed every day (2 Cor 4:16)

"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

I read this and think, THANK GOD! I'm so tired... class from 8-5 everyday all day long will wear on a guy. But I still have five more days to go.

But seriously, praise God he renews us inside, praise God because my outer self is wasting away too quickly. I had four fake teeth before I was 22 years old. Now I'm still young and already having back problems (enough to have been to a chiropractor for the last 2 months and still not be better), I'm balding and even my mind is fading (I think, this one is hard to measure).

The point is, our father looks out for us. He is renewing our spirit, that which will live forever. We're like the 1942 Chevy that will be driven in 2002, 3002, and even 14,009. We may get our oil changed but that won't be enough to keep us running for eternity; we need something supernatural.

Thank you Lord.
