“Number your days “
When you read that, whats the first thing that comes to mind? what does that statement mean to you?
First thing that came to mind when I read that title in my devotion, was “am I God?” how can I possibly number my days……
One of the things I struggle with the most, is spending so much time on what, why & how I can’t achieve something instead of coming up with a plan to execute & meet my goals I have set for myself.
I don’t sit here to say I’m perfect but one thing I know for sure is that there’s a lot of young women who get overwhelmed with life & chasing the American dream. So much that you lose a sense of self & I am one of them.
Here is some food for thought “A career is wonderful, but you can’t curl up with it on a cold night ” Marilyn Monroe.
This short quote helps keep some of my thoughts in perspective when I get carried away with constantly feeling that I need to always be in pursuit of something….. Any one and everyone deserves a break from life.
Lets face it we already come from a culture that trains you to grow up and be a wife. America has given us young women great opportunities in life, but what are we constantly pursuing that never ends? Pursuit is great, but too much of it will separate you from everything else in life.
Life is beautiful and it is meant to be enjoyed. If you don’t enjoy it who will come and enjoy your life for you?
Wise people always say:
This week I had to do exactly that. I had to make a plan on how to execute a few things that were pressing on my mind! Your girls emotions were all over the place and I was anxious about EVERYTHING……
I had to step back & realize I’m human & I can only take up so much responsibility on my self. Sis can’t keep stressing over what’s already over her head. Ndimunte Fye 😂
Psalm 139:16 says : “Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them”
Moral of the story is, be careful with what you invest your time & energy into. Easy to say, very hard to do! It’s easy to preach about positive vibes when you are in a good mood, what about when you have a bad day like a normal person? When Ms Independent is having a bad day what vibes is she sending off? What are you doing with that time you will never get back?
YOUR DAYS ARE NUMBERED….
They’re so many other positive things & different aspects of life that you can focus on. There is someone who will always need what you have to offer.
- Have written goals
- Balance all you have going on in your life
- Be intentional in all you do!!
Today won’t be repeated. Our days are numbered in order for us to serve a specific purpose
