Teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom. - Psalm 90:12
Dear Heavenly Father,
The passing into a new year helps me stop and mark time. What Moses wrote here in his only Psalm in the Psalter helps me to value life properly. My days on earth are numbered. I don't have endless opportunities. The life I have and and the relationships you have created for me are finite. I need to make the most of every moment of my life in your estimation before mine. Oh, God, help me seize every opportunity you have granted me, to sow your powerful word in the hearts and minds of those who need it. Give me your divine wisdom by your Spirit to discern when my life is out of balance and I am simply indulging in pleasure beyond reasonable limits. Make me live on mission with a glad and sincere heart.

Only one life to live and soon it will pass. Only one life to live and only what is done for Christ will last.
