Month/Day/Year --100 Words (Part 5)

[This is part 5 of a 5 part mini series dealing with how we spend our days.Thanks for hanging in there with me!]


I’m ashamed.

I truly am.

I go to bed at night, planning for tomorrow.

I wake up each morning thinking about the day ahead.

The days may change, but my attitude remains the same.

Complete today. Complete tomorrow. Complete the week. Complete the month. Complete the year.

Turn calendar, repeat.

How arrogant is that!

How blatantly wrong is that!

I’m not promised the next breath.

I know that. Maybe I don’t want to believe it. Or, live that way.

To do so would require total submission to God. Obedience. Trust.

But, I have no choice!

God, here am I!

  1. I chose to wait until the last day Steve to respond. I thank you for reminding me to "Number my days." I don't want to be one who lives with a kind of fatalistic "end-of-the-days" complex but at the same time i don't want to live life unaware that my time is known by the Lord. Live life to the fullest with eyes to the sky is a good motto to have and to live by. Thanks for the 5 posts.


Thank you for sharing your thoughts! I can't wait to read what you have written.
