We’re not getting older… we’re getting better.

On a park bench sits a lady reading.
She retired long ago.
She’s alone but not lonely.
She has a friend you can’t see with your eyes
but must be sensed with your heart.
She listens to him while she reads his love letter to her.
And though outwardly she might be wasting away,
yet inwardly her friend is renewing her day by day.
Her friend is Jesus.
And the love letters are in the Bible.
And while all of us are “outwardly wasting away” (2 Corinthians 4:16),
if we know and follow Jesus then, as the saying goes,
we are not getting older… we’re getting better.
Jesus is changing us on the inside day by day as we follow Him.
And when we eventually die we won’t really die.
Rather, we will be ushered into the presence of our Friend and Savior Jesus Christ.
If you would like Jesus to renew you day by day simply
ask Him to forgive your sins and ask Him to be your Savior.
As you follow Him He will grow you and change
you and you will live forever with Him.
If you would like to know more about Jesus,
read the Bible (2 Corinthians 4:16, John 11:25, 15:13-15),
talk to a friend that knows and loves Jesus,
Visit a Church that teaches Jesus is God.

I became Seriously Mentally Ill at age 18, ten years later I got and took the right meds, I accepted Jesus, and my recovery began.
