On Monday afternoon, while at ,  I received the news of an earthquake in Indonesia. The reports were that 160 had died and hundreds were injured. People were sitting enjoying their day, setting goals for the future, and unrepentant lives. And in a moment-their lives came to an end. Our days can be so full and busy that we forget how fragile really is. It can be easy to allow little things to creep in and steal our peace and joy.   

Things may not go your way, someone may say something that upsets you, and traffic can cause you to lose . You must remember that each day is a . If you choose to focus on what’s wrong, you’ll miss the beauty that each day has to offer. I encourage you to not let the precious moments of life pass you by. Don’t wait for Christmas and birthdays to show people that you . Remember, each day is unique and irreplaceable.   

Today, you have been given that can be invested or wasted, hours that can be used or misused. That’s why the psalmist prayed to God, “teach to number our days.” He was saying, “teach us to value every moment that we’ve been given.” As you keep a proper perspective daily, you’ll gain a heart of wisdom, and experience the full blessings that God has for you each and every day of your life!  

“Teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom.” (Psalm 90:12, NIV)  

Let’s Pray  

Yahweh, thank You for the gift of life. , I promise to focus on the blessings of each moment instead of allowing the little things to steal my joy. Lord, me to make the most of each day and not let them waste away. God, please keep me close to You always as I submit every area of my heart and mind to You, in Christ’s Name! Amen.
