Complacency


Teach us to number our days aright that we may gain a heart of wisdom  Psalm 90:12

This is my prayer today...that I would number my days, live as if I had a limited number of days...because I do....we all do. What would you do if you knew that you would be called home soon...what choices would you make? Who would you seek out? I have been asking myself these questions

I have had this conviction on my heart recently as I have found myself getting complacent...content...busy with the "duties of life" I have missed opportunities...lived like there will always be tomorrow to do what should be done today... so go make that call, write that note, encourage that neighbor or friend...share the good news!

Show me O Lord my life's end and the number of my days; let me know how fleeting is my life.
Psalm 39:4

Great post..it hits at what God has been speaking to my heart...thanks for sharing. I have been too caught in the past and not living in the today...as if I could change anything from the past or even know I had a tomorrow. Great inspiring post!

Wonderful post and so well said! It is funny that I am reading this post today. Just last week a friend of mine posted on FB the same thing but in her words. I thought then "What would I do different?". Thanks for this reminder today! Our days are numbered! Hugs and blessings, Cindy

I feel like I battle this all the time. So much going on I find I am asking the Lord every day (often many times during the day) to show me what is the most important.

Thanks so much for sharing this!

This has been a recent conviction of mine, since I often do not feel the best due to a condition I have, and it becomes too easy to not be active and to not answer the heeding of the Holy Spirit. But I am now babysitting 2 of our grandchildren and God has given me the energy to do this. I may have pain in the evenings, but each day is a new opportunity to serve our daughter and her husband, and He is bringing me out of my complacency. Your post is a good reminder for me to not fall back into missing out.

This verse is so very timely for me as we await the passing of my dear Uncle Lindy. It does cause one to pause and think about the importance of each day ... and our desire to live for the Lord Jesus instead of ourselves. Thanks for sharing at A Grateful Heart. Hugs ~ Mary

I was just reading how procrastination is a sin because we assume that we have tomorrow, which is as wrong as assuming that we do not have tomorrow. It was very convicting! We should not forget that God is in charge. You are so right, we need to use the time He grants us with utmost gratitude! Thank you for reinforcing what my heart and actions need to learn and implement! Blessings!
