So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.Psalm 90:12.
Time is no respecter of persons. It has no judgment on age, gender, profession, or social status. Each day we are given equal measures of 24 hours, which breaks down to 1,440 minutes—86,400 seconds.
What will you do with it?
One day we will be held accountable for the time God has gifted us and I desire to be a good steward of each minute. However, becoming busy and overwhelmed with tasks is not the answer to productivity. Sometimes it is in the simple and quiet moments we spend with God that becomes so vital to accomplishing His purpose.
What is something small you can do today that will get you one step closer to your dream? Your calling? Your life’s mission?
I encourage you to write down specific goals—God dreams—and then create a plan regarding the things you need to complete each day to get you one step closer.
Each day matters.
Each moment matters.
Prayer: Lord, thank You for giving me another day to worship You. Just as Your word directs, I pray that You would teach me to number each day—I desire Your wisdom. I do not want to squander the time You have gifted me, so I pray You will help me fulfill what You are calling me to achieve. In Jesus name. Amen.
“…..we spend our years as a tale that is told.” Psalm 90:9
Am I the only one who thinks this year has gone by too fast? It is hard to believe that this is the last day of November and soon the year 2018 will end and we will begin a new one.
This has been a different year for me. There have been some bumps in the road, some health problems which resulted in a miracle of healing, as well as some surprising developments in our family which we did not expect. There have been good times and bad times. But, through it all, the Lord has been there, providing grace and mercy and supplying every need. We have seen many answers to prayer.
As we walk with the Lord He opens doors that are part of His plan and closes those that are not. As we near the end of the year and prepare to enter a new one, we can safely commit everything to Him. No matter what the future holds, He is in control. He will give us the wisdom we need for each day and the faith we need for tomorrow.
Prayer: Lord Jesus, thank you for keeping us through this year and thank you for the assurance that you are always there to meet every need.

While the earth remains, Seedtime and harvest, Cold and heat, Winter and summer, And day and night Shall not cease. (Genesis 8:22, Holy Bible, New King James Version)
Routine is often seen as a rut that hinders progress toward a specific goal. Motivators tell us to get out of the rut, to abandon the stereotype, to embrace change.
I’ve seen many seasons. Fall is my favorite. I welcome it every year. Is fall a rut? No, it has a purpose. Along with the other seasons, it is proof of God’s covenant with Noah, a promise we inherited as long as earth remains.
Prayer: Eternal God, times and seasons continue as a declaration that no man can hinder Your promises. Amen.
