He Owns Each Day

Today is God's.  It is not mine.  It is His.  I want to spend it living and abiding in Him.  I want to not live as my own.  I want to live in obedience and trust that the One who owns this day will be with me and is guiding me.  Lord, help me rely on You today.  I need Your help not only on a daily basis, but a moment-by-moment basis.  Save me from my own selfishness and let me live in Your love today.  Amen.

Lord, remind me how brief my time on earth will be.
Remind me that my days are numbered - how fleeting my life is.
You have made my life no longer than the width of my hand.
My entire lifetime is just a moment for You;
at best, each of us is but a breath.
We are merely moving shadows,
and all our busy rushing ends in nothing.
We heap up wealth,
not knowing who will spend it.
And so, Lord, where do I put my hope?
My only hope is in You.
Ps. 39:4-7

He ask life from You, and You gave it to him -
Length of days forever and ever.
Ps. 21:4

For You, a thousand years are as a passing day,
as brief as a few night hours.
Ps. 90:4
