"Teach us to number our days that we may gain a heart of wisdom."
Another birthday has come and gone. During my birthday weekend, a wise friend shared this verse with me. It's kind of a sobering thing to think about. I am 23 and who knows how many days the Lord has for me.
The last two weeks I have started my real-life "job." However, it's hard to call it a job. I have learned so much and am loving everything about it. I have been challenged and pushed more than I had been in a long time. This is my prayer as I reflect on the urgency in which I hope to live my life for Christ.
"May the favor of the Lord our God rest on us; establish the work of our hands for us—yes, establish the work of our hands."
I pray that I may bring God's truth alive to the people I see everyday. I pray that God establishes this work and I don't try to take the on the burden of sharing the Lord and His truth with them. Most of all I pray for a boldness that comes from truly knowing the Lord.
Now to share some of the ways God blessed me over my birthday.
