Psalm 103:15-18 – 15 As for man, his days are like grass; As a flower of the field, so he flourishes. 16 For the wind passes over it, and it is gone, And its place remembers it no more. 17 But the mercy of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting On those who fear Him, And His righteousness to children’s children, 18 To such as keep His covenant, And to those who remember His commandments to do them.
As I am getting older (I just turned 51), I am beginning to realize that my time here on earth is getting shorter. In reality, I have probably lived well over 50% of my life already. As this has begun to sink in, I have been thinking more about what I want to accomplish with the years I have left so I can leave my mark on the ones that I love.
In today’s passage, we are reminded that our “days are like grass”. In other words, we can go at anytime and anywhere. Throughout the Bible, we are reminded that our time here on earth is short. We count our lives in years, but the Bible suggests we should count them in days. Knowing that our time is short, what can we accomplish? My prayer for all of you is that you will make a difference in this world today and not wait for “tomorrow”. Remember, our “days are like grass”.
I pray for blessings today for you on your Journey!
