This morning during prayer I heard the Lord say,
"Stop trying to make every moment count, and instead, count every moment."This led me to a feeling of despair, because I envisioned a brow furrowing focus on the passage of time; a helpless observation of days that can never be recaptured. But further clarification came:
"As a teacher, you have striven to recognize the value of each individual child; treasuring their unique characteristics. You have not looked at them as a mass of unidentifiable grains of sand. You have sought to treasure them individually, as the Lord treasures them."For today, I will abide in the Lord in the moment I am in, and pray to see the beauty of each precious moment He has gifted to me.
"Individual moments of time can be likened to the students you have cherished. Each of them has value in God's sight. Each is unique, and precious."
"Indwell each moment, and you will see that not one of them is lost. It is more as though each moment well spent is placed in God's bank. The only moments that are lost are those that are not counted. Count each moment as being precious to the Lord."
Scripture: "Teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom" (Psalm 90:12).
