Lord, you have been walking beside us since the beginning of time. Before you created the heavens and the earth, you were God.
You determine life and death. A thousand years to is like a day to you. I am like grass – new in the morning but dried up and withered by evening.
And then I will fly away…….
Please help me understand how quickly my life passes away here on earth so I may be wise in how I spend each moment.
And, sometimes, it feels I am here for too long, Lord. Even though I have problems and trials, help me live each day in your love so I can be filled with the joy that only comes from you.
May your goodness and love shine through me.
Bless me, God, as I love you and serve you.
