Your Number

No matter what you do

or where you go

or who you come into contact with

the Lord has chosen the number of your days


You can’t grit your teeth

and will

one extra day

out of life


He is the Author,

you are the created


He gets to choose


And we often don’t understand

why some have 1 day

and some have a 100 years


But we trust


And we know

that He will fulfill His purposes

for each of our lives


– Susie Stewart


You have decided the length of our lives. You know how many months we will live, and we are not given a minute longer.

– Job 14:5 (NLT)


The Lord will fulfill His purpose for me; your steadfast love, O Lord, endures forever. Do not forsake the work of your hands.

– Psalm 138:8 (ESV)


You see all things; You saw me growing, changing in my mother’s womb; Every detail of my life was already written in Your book; You established the length of my life before I ever tasted the sweetness of it.

– Psalm 139:16 (VOICE)
