Memory Scripture: Teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom. Psalm 90:12
Our reading. Can we talk about it?
Oh man. My heart.
I love Joseph.
I need to be like Joseph.
His heart of forgiveness and faithfulness just SLAYS me.
Are you still reading? It's okay if you are reading another plan. I forgive you.
See, Joseph is rubbing off on me.
But seriously, I cannot get enough of the Old Testament. Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph...OH MY!
In other news...
Since taking on the challenge to walk 10, 000 steps a day, I have had much time to ponder and pray. Being outside surrounded by God's Creation will overwhelm a heart.
With so much walking, and seeing cool things I never ever noticed, I started taking pictures of random things.
I find myself going back to those pictures and just filling up with gratitude.
Something about numbering my steps is doing a number to my heart.
This scripture keeps being played on repeat in my spirit,
Teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom. Psalm 90:12
When we begin to number things....we begin to see the brevity of life.
Like, when we have birthdays. (mine is coming up, just in case you forgot! heehe)
Or, when we start paying cash for everything. You begin to realize how quickly it goes! (it is true, try it)
God's Word tells us in that Psalm that we actually gain wisdom when we begin to number things.
My son told me about a football player, Kirk Cousins, that created a tower of stones. Each month he takes a stone out of the pile and discards it. It is a reminder that he will never get that time back.
He learned this from a Sunday school teacher using the same verse from Psalm 90:12.
Here is an excerpt from what he said..
|Sun peaking through the clouds 1/16/20|
|My 3rd child, Bo. 1/16/20|
|The speed limit around our high school..random|
|Pretty in pink.|
