So my initial topic was to be I am growing up then in my mind I am like but you are not growing any taller so growing up to where :D. For the record, I am the only one allowed to joke with myself like that so please don’t joke with myself as per height. Reminds me of what my second brother said to my third brother “you may be taller but I am older” (for his age then that line was siiick! as in too much wisdom at that age).
That brings me to the point, I am growing older and I have mixed feelings about it. I mean are we not all growing older….whew! No time mehn. Like time just flies and I want to be a teenager again. Now I am sure older people are laughing that all my ” I am still a young girl” days are relatively over and despite me having a baby face or people thinking I am way younger than my age (some say 14-16 ish) let’s face it… I am aging.
It’s a beautiful thing to grow but with it comes so much responsibilities and expectations. Career, marriage, fulfillment, making sure you are living a life of impact. Growing up means intentional living and making the best use of time. Nobody to baby sit you (I still get to keep my daddy’s girl title though). You are making your decisions yourself but be sure to do so with godly counsel. No lackadaisical attitude. If only I could go back in time.
Now I see why the bible says “Teach us to number our days that we may apply our hearts to wisdom.”
I heard Pastor Chingtok Ishaku (also a great worship leader and teacher of the word) explain what numbering meant. Number is a very interesting word. So if the very hair on your head is numbered by God, meaning each strand has a number and then when you comb your hair in the morning and hairs 76 and 19674 fall off, God is aware. He knows the exact number and if it needs replacement, it’s replaced. So numbering your days, it’s like knowing the days you have to live on earth. Paul and Peter could tell when the day of their death was coming and were pretty much prepared (2 Tim 4:7-8, 2 peter 1:14). So now they were counting down and being proactive.
My prayer is that the Holy Spirit teaches us to number our days and make best use of our time for Him. I leave you with this words from 2 Peter 3:8-9 – But, beloved, do not forget this one thing, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is long suffering (patient) toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.
God help us!
