Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

Daily Balance

Psalm 39:4-5 (NLT)
4 “LORD, remind me how brief my time on earth will be. Remind me that my days are numbered— how fleeting my life is. 5 You have made my life no longer than the width of my hand. My entire lifetime is just a moment to you; at best, each of us is but a breath.”

Psalm 118:24 (NIV)
24 This is the day the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.

Father these verses are so complimentary to each other in that one speaks of the brevity of life and the other the blessings of life. They present a balance that we need to be mindful of each day of the year. We should not take a single day for granted nor lose sight of the opportunity, joy and possibilities each day presents. Every day is an adventure in living, in discovering new aspects of life, and developing our relationship with you and those we love.

Father we ask you will to help us remember the brevity and blessing of each day and to live each one in that daily balance.

  1. I really appreciate the time and thoughtfulness you put into your prayers for the blog. This one speaks to my heart knowing that I'm getting older and life may be short...but every day is a bonus and a blessing.
