I recently started following someone on Instagram that was counting her age in days. I was fascinated by the concept, and enlightened. Truly, each day is significant, but we tend to fly through them, getting by without much thought to the minutes.

Reading about this inspired me to know exactly how many days I had lived, so I jumped on and googled an age-in-days calculator and quickly entered my information. It ASTONISHED me: 19,440! Whoa! I started asking God’s forgiveness f...or falling short in appreciating each and every one of those 24 hour gifts. What had I missed thinking there was always tomorrow? What did I take for granted? What Kingdom assignments had I failed to see… or had seen, but hadn’t accepted? What blessings did I miss along the way? I needed to refine my thinking. I needed to expand my willingness to grow. I needed to find peace in facing my fears. Life is so much bigger than I am, and that number - 19,440 - has changed me.

It has made waking up in the morning more meaningful. My new favorite question..."So what's on our agenda today, God?" foremost in my mind. I feel ready to make an impact…. to use the gifts and talents that He has given me to their fullest potential… to not waste a single moment. I realized that making good, better, best decisions daily will lead to a year full of Kingdom service, fulfilling relationships, accomplishments in business, and self-care improvements. To truly bring to life and embrace one of my favorite verses… “Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might”, so that when I look back, I will have solace knowing that I had served faithfully without limits and without fear in the capacity that I was created.

This is the calculator that I used to find out this valuable information: http://jalu.ch/coding/days/en. So, what’s your age in days???
