I love My Calendar!

I love my calendar!

While our Eternal God has no inherent need for measuring days and weeks, He certainly knows people like me, His finite creation, sure needs them. You see, calendars are incredibly useful in the craft of life-change.

Why?

Because calendars provide doors for closure and windows for change. They remind us that life, like sand in an hour glass, is quietly, yet unrelentingly, slipping away.

David prayed, ““Show me, LORD, my life’s end and the number of my days; let me know how fleeting my life is.” (Psalm 39:4)

My calendar helps me to make the most of every moment. Weeks, for instance, only have seven days. That means I have a chance to put a bad one behind me. Tuesday may have been a disaster, but Sunday’s coming! Or maybe December was filled with disappointments. Well, December only has thirty-one days and then I’m launched into a whole New Year of potential and new opportunities.

So let our prayer be like that of Moses:

“Teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom.” (Psalm 90:12)

Love your calendar because it helps to provide a measurable context; context brings clarity, and clarity will lead to a wise heart and a meaningful life.
