The older we become, the more we realize how short this life is. It is here a moment and then gone the next. Be guided by the truth that this life is temporary and we are called through becoming like Christ to prepare for the eternity for which we have been created. It matters not what this world thinks, but it does matter what the Lord thinks. Set your priorities on the right place.
Lord, clear my mind of the fog of this world to see things as they are. Help me now and always to see in You the only hope of glory, which should always be for You. Guide me into the upward path to which You have called me that I would live into the eternal life for which I have been created. Help me now and always to see in You the only hope for this or any age.
Holy Spirit, constantly guide me to look to You for all help and guidance. Lead me in the right way of living day by day knowing that I am always being transformed for what is to come. Guide my footsteps to walk the path You have set before me, doing what is right in the Father’s sight. Help me now and always to be content in every circumstance and know that You are God and that Your goodness never ends. Amen.
