“You have swept them away like a flood, they fall asleep; in the morning they are like grass which sprouts anew. In the morning it flourishes and sprouts anew; toward evening it fades and withers away.” (Psalm 90:5-6)
Life is short, especially in terms of the view of the Lord. We have a few years and then our time here is done. What do we do with this time we have been given? Eternal life is in our hearts and we want to live, but what do we do with this time? The Lord grants us the opportunity to come into His presence and live as He designed us to live. Flourish in the way You were made to live.
Lord, help me to learn to live according to the way You created me to live. There are those around me who live lives as they choose, but You have made me to live according to Your purpose. Guide me, O Lord, that I may now and always live into the life to which You have called me. Guide me by Your precepts to walk the way You know is good and lift me up away from the temptations that would lead me astray.
Savior, You know we need to be saved. Lift me up through grace to learn from You how to navigate this world. Help me now and always to listen to You that I may learn to obey all that You command. Keep me close to You that I may abide in the will of the Father. May I now and always have my heart turned to You, Lord Jesus, and obey all you have commanded. Amen.
