Lately, each night when I climb into bed, I think, “Where did the day go? It went by so fast!” And, I hope that what I did during the day was for something bigger than myself, that it was for Jesus. Psalm 90 boomerangs off my mind, touching the echo of my heart and there it stays.
“So teach us to number our days, That we may gain a heart of wisdom.” Psalm 90:12
I lay in bed and I question what matters most to me. I think about where my time is being placed, falling so short at times. Empty minutes can be stolen so quickly. I try to consider the emphasis of eternal values in my daily choices. Am I doing okay, Lord?
Not in a works-based kind of way, but in a way where my heart rests in the One who created it, and longs to align with His ways, because He teaches me what matters. Because He is holy and perfect and loving.
Time is slipping away. So fast.
“Oh, satisfy us early with Your mercy, That we may rejoice and be glad all our days!” Psalm 90:14
My ministry right now is loving my husband and pouring into our children. Our little ones who need Jesus and the not so little anymore who need Jesus. The latter clearly define how fast the time really goes.
“Let Your work appear to Your servants, And Your glory to their children.” Psalm 90:16
At the end of the day, when I am exhausted, and cannot fill one more cup for a thirsty child, do one more load of laundry, or listen to one more person talk to me, I wonder, am I letting the moments escape? Lord, remind me to make them count.
“And let the beauty of the Lord our God be upon us, And establish the work of our hands for us; Yes, establish the work of our hands.” Psalm 90:17
