One of our grandsons was singing in the car, Clear Eyes, Full Heart. Can’t Lose. I smiled as he sang it with conviction. It reminded me of a journal entry I wrote on January 1, 2020.
It’s so good for me to go back and reflect on what I’ve written in the past. This week I started going back through my journal from 4 years ago during my concussion recovery reading my entries.
It is faith-building for me to remember where I was and how God brought me through that hard time.
Psalm 90:12, “Teach me to realize the brevity of life, so that I may grow in wisdom.” I wrote that verse down on Day 7 after my car accident. During that time I had to lay in the dark; motionless for weeks, I kept praying for God to heal me.
Then the next day I would wake up in the same crisis. I didn’t give up though. When fear would try to take charge of my mind, sometimes all I could do was say over and over to myself, God is good. God is good.
As I went back to look at Psalm 90 this morning, verse 4 jumped out at me: “Indeed, in your sight a thousand years are like a single day, like yesterday-already past- like an hour in the night.” God sees time in a different way than we can even fathom. Since the creation of our world, God has always loved His people and ready to redeem anyone who comes to Him. That is comforting to me knowing God is way bigger than what we are going through right now. The Sovereign God who created all things is all powerful, all knowing and He will never leave us.
Our world has been hit in the face with the reality of how short life really is. Mac & I will make the most of each day asking ourselves: What small step can I take today that will make an eternal difference?
“May the favor of the Lord our God rest upon us; establish the work of our hands for us—–yes, establish the work of our hands.” Psalm 90:17
God is with us. God is for us. God is good.
