The Gift of Time

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.
You matter!

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.
