Life is a Vapor

In the noisy chaos of the day, I long for a few minutes of stillness. Stillness where my fingers sit in anticipation on the keyboard and my mind’s thoughts begin to quiet. Processing the day brings me calm relief. It is in these moments as I reflect – the twiddle-twaddle falls away and all comes clearly into focus.

What did God show me or teach me today? Did I hear Him? Did I learn anything from having lived another day on this earth today?  Will I be a better person tomorrow than I was yesterday?  Life is such a short vapor. All our days tumble into the next.  Weeks turn into months and years as the rat race continues. But here, in the still hours of the night, the words clank out onto the screen in an effort to purposefully capture my day. I mull the moments over in my mind. What did I do today that will make a difference for eternity?  How can I respond to today’s events so tomorrow will have eternal consequence?   Let my days not blur together until they are but a fading memory.

Ps. 46:10 “Be still and know that I am God”

Ps. 39:5-6 “You, indeed, have made my days short in length, and my life span as nothing in Your sight. Yes, every mortal man is only a vapor. Selah” “Certainly, man walks about like a mere shadow.
Indeed, they frantically rush around in vain, gathering possessions without knowing who will get them.”

PS. 44:4 “Man is like a breath; his days are like a passing shadow.”

James 4:14 “Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes.”
