Old Things Renewed

Old Things Renewed ~ Watercolor by Candace Huffmaster

So we are always confident. We know that as long as we are living in these bodies, we are living away from the Lord. Indeed, our lives are guided by faith, not by sight. We are confident and prefer to live away from this body and to live with the Lord. 2 Corinthians 5:6-8 GW

We know that we are to be transformed by the renewing of our minds.  And yet we still have to live within the limitations of our mortal bodies.  This at times causes us to lean on our own understanding which hinders our ability to live the transformed life we believe is available.  Think about the limited form of the caterpillar, how it crawls along and consumes.  Don’t you think if it had the ability to choose to live as a butterfly from the beginning it would do so?

God created us with the ability to reason, acknowledge and discern in order to live a higher transformed Zoe life.  What are you waiting for?  Have faith, spread your wings and reach heights for His name sake and glory.

For today, simply think about this.  Later I will be posting a deeper thought on this which will tie together being on pause and moments in between.

My prayer is for our Spirit to prosper even as our soul does right now.

With Love,
