2 Corinthians 5:2-3. in this body we groan, longing to be clothed with our dwelling from heaven. . .For indeed while we are in this tent, we groan, being burdened,
Yesterday and today I cut, split, threw, hauled, and stacked firewood. I am now sitting in my recliner groaning, longing for my new, glorified body. I think the reason that we ache more, and get stiff more as we get older is to remind us that we are headed for a new life where everything is new, wonderful, strong, and feels great.
For our citizenship is in heaven, from which also we eagerly wait for a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ; who will transform the body of our humble state into conformity with the body of His glory, by the exertion of the power that He has even to subject all things to Himself.
So, even though our body feels terrible, we rejoice because it won’t be long now until the joy that we feel and the strength we will have will be incomprehensible.
