What is the Measure of My Days

The verses I picked to day do reflect some of the emotions I am experiencing.    I feel as though for almost 10 years now, I have lived a very unfulfilling life and sometimes, I wonder what value I carry not just to God, but to those around me.  If I cannot even take care of myself, how can I take care of anything else?

Verse 10, sometimes I feel as though God is there and keeping me down, I know he loves me and is “developing” me, but I wish, as in verse 13, he’d look away so maybe I could have that breath of fresh air before I take my last one definitive breath.

I struggle between God’s want for me and the one I believe God should want for me, this helps express it.

Psalm 39

Psalm 39:4–5 (ESV)

“O Lord, make me know my end
and what is the measure of my days;
let me know how fleeting I am!

Behold, you have made my days a few handbreadths,
and my lifetime is as nothing before you.
Surely all mankind stands as a mere breath! Selah


Psalm 39:10 (ESV)

10  Remove your stroke from me;

I am spent by the hostility of your hand.


Psalm 39:13 (ESV)

13  Look away from me, that I may smile again,

before I depart and am no more!”

I am a father of five a loving father an involved father. I have my struggles, I have my days, but I have the lord to be with me to get me through. I view my life sometimes like that of Naomi. I do the best I can, but I am bitter because things seem to have been taken away, but I am also stronger and a better human being overall. I pray I am walking and doing God's plan. I pray he would use me more. God Bless and thank you for your love and support.
