Life's Brevity

Psalm 90:12 (NLT)
     Teach us to realize the brevity of life, so that we may grow in wisdom.

Father when I was young I remember time seemed to move so slowly. Will the week-end ever get here?  This has sure been a long day. It seems like a year but it’s only been a month. I was so impatient for time to pass. And now time has passed and I wonder where has all the time gone? Twenty Four Hours as a measure of time has not changed, but my perception of it has. The Psalmist was wise to pray: “LORD, remind me how brief my time on earth will be. Remind me that my days are numbered— how fleeting my life is.” Psalm 39:4 (NLT) 

Now I know how brief life is and how true the words of James are: “How do you know what your life will be like tomorrow? Your life is like the morning fog—it’s here a little while, then it’s gone.” James 4:14 (NLT)

So Father, even now, in the reality of the golden years may I treasure each day for what it is, a time and opportunity to live wisely and take advantage of every opportunity to honor you and be a help and blessing to all I may encounter.

Thank you Father for the gift of life, help me to life it wisely.
