      Psalm 90

      November 30, 2017 Pastor Terry
      I love Psalm 90.  It is jam-packed with some great wisdom and verses that many of us are familiar with.  Verse 4  "... 1000 years in your sight are like a day that has just gone by."  Verse 10  "The length of our days is 70 years - or 80, if we have the strength..."  Then we come to verse 12  "Teach us to number our days aright, that we may gain a heart of wisdom."
       
                I just celebrated another year on this earth and NUMBERS are becoming more significant to me.  Every year is a gift from God and I praise Him for my health and strength.  However, I also want to heed the advice of Psalm 90:12 "Teach us (me) to number our (my) days ..."  God, make me mindful how few my days are here on this earth and help me to use each day wisely.
       
                Charles T. Studd will be best remembered by many for his poem "Only one life, 'Twill soon be past."  It's most memorable verse states:  "Only one life, 'twill soon be past.  Only what's done for Christ will last."  
       
      What a great reminder that as followers of Christ, we are here on this earth for a season and for a reason - to glorify God and live for Him.   
      "Teach us to make the most of our time ..." (NLT)
