Well, I've tried so hard to keep up with my regular Monday blogs, but with funerals, Resurrection Sunday and my own responsibilities its obvious that time has gotten away from me.

Speaking of "Time Getting Away" isn't it incredible how each and every single person has the same amount of exact time in a day as everyone else? I've always wondered how some people are able to be so productive with their time, and all I ever feel like I do is stare at a computer screen...

In a Psalm of Moses, he says, " So teach us to number our days, That we may gain a heart of wisdom." (Psalm 90:12)

Teach us to number our days... I know perfectly well how to count the minutes...especially when I was working under a time clock! But, "Teach us to number our days".

If I can read into a little of the context of the passage, what I think Moses is hinting at, is that he is asking God to remind us that our lives do not last forever.

As a young person, I've often felt like I have my entire life to achieve things. I'll be honest after having turned 35 this year, I'm beginning to get a little bit nervous! I'm not really where I thought I would be at the age of 35, nor does my family live the way that I thought they would be either. I often find myself consumed with the things of this world, and the "days" and "moments" I have left to live.

When I tuck my 2 year old son into bed each night and he gives me kisses and hugs each night, and each night I hold him a little longer knowing that before long those kisses and hugs will be a thing of the past.

My oldest daughter is now 8 almost 9, and she is to much of a big kid to sit on my lap, or want to really do things with dad. Usually the things that I think she will enjoy turn out to be a dud, and I feel like we haven't bonded at all.

This year my wife and I will be married for 13 years in December. I can't believe that I have spent 13 years of my life married to this special woman.

"So teach us to number our days, That we may gain a heart of wisdom."

Time is slipping away through the spaces between my fingers...

At the same time though as we realize that time here is escaping away from us, we look forward to an eternity without end.

Satan does such a wonderful job constantly causing us to forget the coming future that believers in Christ have. He causes us to take our eyes off the finish line, off the prize, and look at the things around us. Much like Peter walking on the water, when he took his eyes off of Christ and placed them on the waves and wind around him he immediately began to sink.

I want to encourage you today, yes time is fleeting. Yes, soon the day will be o'er but Look to Jesus the Author and Finisher of the Faith. Remember as time seems to flash away before you, that a time is coming in the very near future where time will be no more.


"Come to Jesus, Come to Jesus and live."
