“Therefore we do not lose heart.  Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day.”  2 Corinthians 4:16

     Do you desire times of refreshing?  We all need to be refreshed from time to time.  The warm days of the past few weeks remind us of the refreshing days of spring after the cold and dreary days of winter.  Most of us enjoy the transition from winter to spring because it brings us a sense of refreshing and renewal. We hear of people who enjoy doing spring cleaning.  Are you involved in some things now that you would call times of refreshing?  During this time of year, many of us are involved with different projects around the house which leads to a real feeling of refreshing. 

     What about our spiritual lives?  Are you being renewed and refreshed every day?  Renewal comes in a variety of ways and sometimes it may not be exactly what we would desire.  Look carefully again at the passage above.  The verse which immediately follows that one tells us that our troubles are bringing renewal and eternal glory to our lives.  How can that be?  It is in those troublesome times that we are learning to lean more and more upon our Heavenly Father.  We are renewed and refreshed daily as we spend time in God’s Word and personal time alone with Him.  What is the result of our daily renewal?  We fix our eyes on what is unseen rather than the things we can see.  Therefore, whatever situation we face, God can use as a time of renewal and refreshing.

     What things in life really get you excited?  Spiritual renewal gets us excited about the things that really matter.  We are in the midst of difficult days that are only going to get worse.  We need daily renewal to help us in this time.  We will not find renewal and refreshing in the things of this world.  Only in Jesus do we really experience renewal and refreshing that lasts.  Our prayer is that you will be renewed daily as you seek to know and serve Him more each day.  May you be blessed abundantly as you seek His renewal and serve Him daily with all your heart.

                                                                                                                                We love you,
