Our Treasured Hope in Measured Days

Greetings!

BlogFam, 
Tomorrow is NOT promised and our days on this earth are numbered, limited, and will one day come to an end.  I know that we do not usually like to talk about the measure of our days, a number of days that is mysterious to all, yet it is a number that we too often take for granted.  

It has been about two weeks since I have blogged about our HOPE Series but the scripture for today was on my mind then as it is right now... Psalm 39:4-7

“Show me, Lord, my life’s end and the number of my days; 
let me know how fleeting my life is.
5 You have made my days a mere handbreadth;    
the span of my years is as nothing before you.
Everyone is but a breath, even those who seem secure.
6 “Surely everyone goes around like a mere phantom;    
in vain they rush about, heaping up wealth without knowing whose it will finally be.
7 “But now, Lord, what do I look for?    My HOPE is in you.

Talk about putting things in perspective!  When is the last time you asked the Lord to put your life in perspective as it specifically relates to the time you have left here on earth?  Probably not recently, if ever!  I know that I do think about how time flies but I do not necessarily or frequently think about my life as the "mere handbreath" that it actually is in the grand scheme of eternity.  The truth is that we do NOT have much time on this earth.  For whether you are 8, 18, or 80 years old, you must use the time WISELY that you do have and place your HOPE in the Lord!

Our treasured HOPE in measured days is that GOD is in the midst of it all.  God knows us and God knows the number of days we have to live in this life.  God knows how we are to best use our days to fulfill God's purpose and is willing to steer our lives back on track when we get off course.  God knows  that 8, 18, or 80 years on this earth is nothing in the grand scheme of God's eternal plan and that we are NOT in control of even the breath that we breathe.  God knows that insurance policies and "heaping up wealth" is impossible to provide the security we need in God. God knows the measure of our days and in God we have our treasured HOPE!

So, My Friends, with the few breaths that you do have, I pray that you have and that you will place your HOPE in the Lord!  I pray that you will not take one breath on any day for granted but that you would exhaust your energy in seeking and working to fulfill God's purpose in your life.  Tomorrow is not promised.  Yesterday is gone.  All you have is the gift of Today, which is the present.  So, use your day wisely!

“Show me, Lord, my life’s end and the number of my days; 
let me know how fleeting my life is."

GOD LOVES YOU and I DO TOO!!!
Blessings, Glory, and Sunshine!
