Today, I spent some time really reflecting on life and death. And the One who holds it all.
Psalm 90 ~
Before the mountains were brought forth,
or ever you had formed the earth and the world,
from everlasting to everlasting…
you are God.
return man to dust
and say, “Return, O children of man!”
For a thousand years in your sight
are but as yesterday when it is past,
or as a watch in the night.
sweep them away as with a flood; they are like a dream,
like grass that is renewed in the morning:
in the morning it flourishes and is renewed;
in the evening it fades and withers.
So teach us to number our days
that we may get a heart of wisdom.
Satisfy us in the morning with your steadfast love,
that we may rejoice and be glad all our days.
Make us glad for as many days as you have afflicted us,
and for as many years as we have seen evil.
Let your work be shown to your servants,
and your glorious power to their children.
Let the favor of the Lord our God be upon us,
and establish the work of our hands upon us;
yes, establish the work of our hands!
This week, friends, no matter what your calling, what your job, who you’re serving….”let God work through your work.”*
Because our days are too short to do nothing.
Have a beautiful week!
