Teach us to realize the brevity of life, so that we may grow in wisdom.

Psalms 90:12 NLT

https://bible.com/bible/116/psa.90.12.NLT

Brevity means, “shortness of time,” and, “concise and exact use of words.” Growing in understanding of both definitions offers help to living every day.

Life is short. Even as one hopes for 90 years, placed in the time frames of human history and eternity, it is at its best short. There is a real opportunity to make each day count. Value the people around you today. Treasure relationships and tend to important tasks.

Spend time with God. Know and grow in Him.

Step back from business, and live at a pace in life that allows for meaningful contribution every day. Take care of yourself. Take care of others. Rest. Work hard. Love deeply. Think carefully.

Focus your words. Take time to think about what is being said in everyday conversation. Be clear. A good friend of mine says, “clear is kind.”  The psalmist wrote: “Let the words of my mouth and the meditations of my heart be pleasing to You, O God, my strength and my redeemer.”

Our words create. Let’s create good with them. Focus them on the things that matter. Don’t just “spout off.”

Encouragement: Life is short. Think well. Speak good. Value each day. Choose each word for good.

Prayer: Dear Jesus, thank You for reminding us of the brevity of life. Thank You for reminding us to be focused with our words. Help us in living each day with value and care. In Your name Jesus, we pray, Amen.

This is God’s Place

God chose Warm Beach Camp to be the home of The Lights of Christmas! He chose the people to start this amazing experience to share the true message of Christmas.

But no matter what, when you drive through The Lights ...

Horses: Life Impact

If you have ever felt a horse’s warm breath on your skin or breathed in their scent as you hugged their neck while laying your head on their side, you will know that horses have a way of reaching deep into your soul. They bringing comfort to places in your heart that may be buried under layers of grief, bitterness, rejection, fear, or hurt. Our goal at Warm Beach Horsemanship is to provide as many opportunities as possible for people ...
