Teach us to number our days aright,
that we may gain a heart of wisdom.
Relent, O LORD! How long will it be?
Have compassion on your servants.
Satisfy us in the morning with your unfailing love,
that we may sing for joy and be glad all our days.
Make us glad for as many days as you have afflicted us,
for as many years as we have seen trouble.
your splendor to their children.
May the favor of the Lord our God rest upon us;
establish the work of our hands for us—
yes, establish the work of our hands. Psalm 90:12-17
This was my prayer this morning as I stared at the scene above--snotty kleenex, dirty dishes. Lord, tell me what to do this week. Lord, satisfy me this morning, this week. Make my "to do" list and give me the discipline to do it. It's not that I have an overload of work this week. In fact, we have a number of fun things planned. It's more that I have trouble prioritizing what needs to be done first and what can wait. I tend to want to do it all. Then, I end up exhausted, grumpy and unsatisfied. So I'm giving it to Him and it is already working out better. The kids are down for afternoon naps now and I have already accomplished so much of what He put on the list for me this morning. Thank you, Lord for answering my request. Thank you for being a part of even the mundane, routine parts of my life.
