Our days can be so busy that we forget how fragile life really is. Itâ€™s easy to allow little things to creep in and steal our peace and joy. Maybe something doesnâ€™t go our way, or someone says something upsetting. Even traffic can cause us to lose focus if we let it. We have to remember that each day is a gift. If we choose to focus on whatâ€™s wrong, weâ€™ll miss the beauty that each day has to offer.
Donâ€™t let the precious moments of life pass you by. Donâ€™t wait for holidays and birthdays to show people that you care. Remember, each day is unique and irreplaceable. You have been given time that can be invested or wasted; hours that can be used or misused.
Today, the prayer of the psalmist still applies, â€œteach us to number our days.â€ He was saying, â€œteach us to value every moment weâ€™ve been given.â€ As you daily keep a proper perspective, youâ€™ll gain a heart of wisdom. Youâ€™ll draw closer to God and experience the full blessings that He has for you each and every day!
â€œTeach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom.â€
(Psalm 90:12, NIV)
Yahweh, thank You for the gift of today. Father, I choose to focus on the blessings of each moment instead of allowing the little things to steal my joy. God, keep me close to You always, as I submit every area of my heart and mind to You, in Christâ€™s name! Amen.
