I have started to read the book My One Word by Mike Ashcroft. (the link is added, but I do not have a partnership at this point).
Of course, this is still true:
Psalm 90:12 So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.
This is my insight for today – seeking wisdom from the Lord, and from my daily writing via 750words
This is not a grammatically correct writing – this is from a free flowing thought writing during my meditation. Some captitalization issues are more for poetic/artistic impact than grammar. Some of the flow, and sentence structure is more poetic than accurate writing code. Please be gracious as I share my heart.
Teach me to number my days that I may apply my heart to wisdom. I used to think that was making a schedule. Actually, it’s about making intentional choices. One of the things I’ve learned in the last 7 days is that if I eat sugar as in a donut or a red velvet bread pudding dessert, I end up with blurry vision. I knew that if my Sugar crashed I would get blurry vision. I now know that if I eat sugary something, my vision goes blurry as well. Another thing that I have figured out just tonight is cheese or dairy. It causes me to itch. I knew it cost phlegm in my throat, but I had not specifically recognized that it caused itching that keeps me awake.
This whole concept of teach me to number my days seems to be teach me to see my days my hours my minutes as priceless. It seems that numbering my days is like looking in my wallet and seeing that I have $19 and deciding whether I’m going to spend that on some ridiculous movie and popcorn, or spend it on an excellent meal, or save it for something that may actually impact the world!
The concept of making sure that I am healthy to the best of my abilities being equal to loving myself and actually serving God to the best of my abilities, is a Brand New Concept for me. Of course loving myself so that I can love my neighbors is a concept I have struggled with for a while. Loving myself because God loved me first is changing my whole Focus.

Thanks for joining me in this journey,
In His hands and under His wings,
Ps 63:7 Because you are my help, I sing in the shadow of your wings.
“The Lord does not give me rules, but He makes His standard very clear.
If my relationship to Him is that of love, I will do what He says without hesitation.
If I hesitate, it is because I love someone I have placed in competition with Him, namely, myself.” – from My Utmost for His highest
