Wow! God is talking loudly to me about his truth in Psalm 39. First, he reminded me that life is short. Got it!
Now – what is my legacy?
In this Psalm, David is talking to God and he says, “We are merely moving shadows, and all of my busy rushing ends in nothing.
Nothing?! My busy rushing ends in nothing?
How worthless is that? That’s not what I want my life to be about!
I know – it’s all about priorities. We all have 24 hours in each day – it’s the great equalizer. So, when someone says they didn’t have time to do something or they don’t have time to something else, it really means it’s just not a high priority for them. Because they have time – we all have the same 24 hours in a day.
How do I spend my time and treasures? What am I busy with?
How about you?
God is very clear that my priorities need to be loving him and loving others. I have written this truth in this blog probably hundreds of times and I will write it hundreds of more times – because it’s the truth.
And God’s truth does not change. It doesn’t change over time and it doesn’t change for different people.
You have the same priorities.
And I am very confident if you and I spend our fleeting time on this earth loving God and loving others, God will bless our actions and our lives will have much more meaning than ‘busy rushing which ends in nothing’. God has a purpose for our lives and, after we have walked into heaven, he wants to be able to say, “Well done, good and faithful servant.”
Dear Father, Please help me keep my priorities lined up with your’s.
