“Behold, you have made my days a few handbreadths, and my lifetime is as nothing before you. Surely all mankind stands as a mere breath! Selah”Psalms 39:5 ESV
I read these verses and they always make me think:
It doesn’t matter how old you, life is really just a moment, a breath, it comes and goes very quickly. The key is to fill them with stuff that really matters.
What I have done may be fantastic but what lies ahead can still be greater.
In reality the days I have ‘truly’ lived are far too few.
Days, weeks, months and years pass by quickly. Time to take the walk with God more seriously and listen to what He is asking of me.
Honestly, a lifetime in the context of eternity is nothing. We are spiritual beings in a temporary home not the other way round. I will live forever but not in this present form.
Help me Lord to walk careful, to take hold of the time I have, to occupy myself on things that truly matter for eternity.
