“10The days of our lives are seventy years;
And if by reason of strength they are eighty years,
Yet their boast is only labor and sorrow;
For it is soon cut off, and we fly away.
11Who knows the power of Your anger?
For as the fear of You, so is Your wrath.
12So teach us to number our days,
That we may gain a heart of wisdom. ”
If I could just keep these verses before me, it would be so much easier to wake up early. May I remember that the only gift I can give to Christ are the days I live for Him here on earth!
“We must work the the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.” (Jesus Christ, John 9:4)
