That is how many days old I am today.
Why did I look this up?
Psalm 90 verse 12 says, “So teach us to number our days that we may get a heart of wisdom.”
If I live to be 80, I have 13,098 days left. A little under half what I have already breathed.
Three times in as many years, the Lord allowed me to be in near death auto encounters. No scratches occurred, not even a dented bumper. But it has stood as a witness. That He is listening, that He answers prayers…and sometimes it is scary.
I praise Him that in each situation His peace flooded me in the moment.
And it convinces me that my days are numbered by Him. Regardless. I will not go to be with Him a second sooner than He wishes.
I’m good with that. His timing is perfect. I ask Him to teach my heart wisdom, love, mercy. I keep asking Him to “establish the work of our hands.” Before all these beseechings is the awareness that I can only pray this way because His favor rests on me through Jesus Christ.
I am a surrendered life to be spent how He wishes.
