Don't Lose Heart
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
So, fellas, today is not a day to lose heart. Don't do it! You are just experiencing the tension. It's the tension between here and there. The tension between now and not yet. The tension between the outer self and the inner self. And the stress is real. You are living in it. But know this, where there is tension, two good things are happening. Something that is dying and something that is coming to life. Something that is wasting away and something else that is being renewed. So please do not lose heart. We need you to stay in the fight during the tension. These moments forge great men. And you are that man!
DO THIS: Live in the tension one more day.
PRAY THIS: God, I need strength. Please give me enough for today.
