“Teach us to number our days carefully so that we may develop wisdom in our hearts. Make us rejoice for as many days as You have humbled us, for as many years as we have seen adversity.”
Psalms 90:12, 15 HCSB
“Slowly flow the days…swiftly fly the years,” is the message I sang at a wedding years ago, lines from “Sunrise, Sunset” of “Fiddler On The Roof.” How many times have you heard yourself talking about the day dragging only to later look at photos of days gone by and comment on how time flies?
What would change if you practiced living in the moment you have NOW rather than getting by, waiting impatiently for it to pass? God wants us to find the joy in the middle of our mess. Right here. Right now. Not after you lose ten pounds, the bills are paid off, your health is better. During your hardest season ever seek Him with all your heart, and you WILL find the joy. 🚦
