Default Rooted galaxy s4 update issue

hi guys just wanna ask I brought the galaxy s4 a few days ago, and I've rooted it straight away. But since the root my s4 can no longer update with the original automatic update program. It's not much if a issue now since I'm running jelly bean 4.2.2 out of the box but I'm wondering how I could update my phone in the future when the new version of Android touchwiz comes out?
