Psalm 90:12-17 New Living Translation (NLT)
For many years, I enjoyed listening to Billy Graham share the Word of God. He always seemed to bring forth such wisdom. I ran across this quote from Billy Graham and I felt it was worth sharing as it connects with our Scripture for the day.
“There comes a moment when we all must realize that life is short, and in the end the only thing that really counts is not how others see us, but how God sees us.” Billy Graham
May God truly help us grow in wisdom and realize our great need for him, because only God’s love can renew and satisfy a life. Blessings!
Teach us to realize the brevity of life,
so that we may grow in wisdom.
O Lord, come back to us!
How long will you delay?
Take pity on your servants!
Satisfy us each morning with your unfailing love,
so we may sing for joy to the end of our lives.
Give us gladness in proportion to our former misery!
Replace the evil years with good.
Let us, your servants, see you work again;
let our children see your glory.
And may the Lord our God show us his approval
and make our efforts successful.
Yes, make our efforts successful!
Prayer: Lord, you alone can make my life shine. Fill me with gladness and gratitude and call me into service every day that I live. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
