Make Your Days Count!


 

Psalm 90:10-12

 

So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom,” Psalm 90:12. 

 

 

 

In the middle of his anguish and loss, Job recorded these words about the brevity of life: “Man that is born of a woman is of few days, and full of trouble. He cometh forth like a flower, and is cut down: he fleeth also as a shadow, and continueth not” (Job 14:1, 2).

 

I am sure there are days when you feel the same way about life. When things go wrong, it’s easy to remember how good life used to be and allow a feeling of despair and dread to come over you. But, if you are reading this, you are not done yet. God is not finished with you. As long as there is air in our lungs and blood coursing through our veins, there is work to be done. Surely, when our race is finished, God will bring us home to Him, but until then, we have a job to do. We do not accomplish that job by glorying in the past, but by hopefully marching toward the future on a wild ride of faith. Job did not give up, but pressed on in faith. God honored his faithfulness and blessed him with the resources he needed to glorify God on earth, restoring to him all that he had lost. A life of faith trusts God even in the dark days and vows to pursue God every day to make each day count. Your life may be short compared to eternity, but it is what you do with your life on earth that counts in eternity. Like the old hymn says, “Only what you do for Him will be counted in the end; only what you do for Christ will last!” (Raymond Rasberry, “Only What You Do for Christ Will Last”)

 

 

 

JUST A THOUGHT

 

Will you make today count for eternity?
