You Are a Woman of God. Trust in His Power and His Love for You, Blessed One!
Women will find comfort, challenge, and their spirits blessed as they experience an intimate connection with their Savior all 365 days of the year.
A pastor tried to illustrate the brevity of life to his congregation. "Think of a straight line stretching into infinity on either end. Anywhere on the line, place a dot, smaller than a pinprick. That is your life, your 'threescore and 10 years' Moses spoke of."
James described our life as "a vapor that are appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away." In reality, given our finite minds trying to wrap around an infinite concept, these examples don't really come close to describing the brevity of life. But in spite of that, God does not does have a purpose for each one of us, a purpose He designed uniquely for each individual.
As a new year stretches ahead, many tend to procrastinate, thinking that time stretches into enough time to accomplish their goals and "still enjoy life." But Moses likens our lives to grass that springs up fresh in the morning, but by evening it dries up and dies. What seems a long time to us is really very little in the eyes of an eternal God. No wonder Moses' prayer was for wisdom to live a fulfilling and purposeful life in the brief time allotted to mankind. We would be wise to make this a daily prayer as we walk forward.
