How to Number Your Days

Psalm 90 tells us to “number our days so we might apply our heart to God’s wisdom.” 

Hi, I’m Joni Eareckson Tada.  Psalm 90 tells us to “number our days so we might apply our heart to God’s wisdom.” Over the years, my quadriplegia has really helped me do this – my wheelchair is always forcing me to take one day at a time, and keep looking to the Lord for grace and help in most everything I do. Living like that sure makes each day precious. Too many of us, though, have a hard time grasping just how precious our days are, and so, we feel no need to number them – but things we fail to account for, we waste. So how can you be a better steward of your days? Well, learn the lesson my wheelchair taught me – don’t resent your trials as intruders, but consider them as friends… A friend that forces you to slow down, number your days, and live more circumspectly. Believe me, it’ll make each day precious. And that’s applying your heart to God’s wisdom.
