I have a friend that every year in January announces at our weekly meeting, “52 weeks until Christmas.” Then the next week, “51 weeks until Christmas.” I always think, “it is so far away,” and yet here we are days away! When I reflect on the last 50+ weeks of 2018 I am amazed at how quickly time has passed. The feeling I have is expressed well by the Psalmist in chapter 90.
"Teach us to number our days.
That we may present to you a heart of wisdom."
Annual celebrations like Christmas remind us that time marches forward. What we do with our time matters. With Christmas just around the corner consider the word TIME.
Take TIME to make the most of Today knowing that Tomorrow isn’t promised.
Take TIME to Identify God’s faithfulness this year & be an Influencer in the year ahead.
Take TIME to reflect on your Many blessings & be Mindful of every opportunity to bless others.
Take TIME to Engage God’s Word today and be Empowered for the tomorrows God gives.
In what ways have you numbered your days this year? How have you grown in wisdom?
May you look ahead to 2019 with hopeful expectancy of how you will use your TIME to honor God and impact His Kingdom!
