“Teach us to number our days so that we may truly live and achieve wisdom.” Psalm 90:12 NIV
Number our days. That could be interpreted as living each day like it is our last. But even then, what does that mean? For me, it means perspective. How do I live my life from the perspective of what it looks like in totality. I have had seasons of selfishness and opportunistic pursuits. As I am getting older, I am starting to consider more thoughtfully and intentionally what I want to do with the days I have left. It does not feel like retirement! I feel more of a sense of urgency in accomplishing things that make a difference. I have a desire to tuck into God more closely so that His wisdom governs how my days are spent to accomplish His desires instead of my own. I have put more selfish things aside as I focus more on Him. It’s invigorating. It’s renewing. It’s just not about me anymore. I am filled with excitement and anticipation of how God will use my days.
Father, I pray that Your will, not mine, will govern my remaining days.
