Do You Feel Like You Have an Expiration Date?

“Teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom” (Psalm 90:12).

Sometimes this life of chronic illness feels like walking around with an expiration date. The pain reminds us of the weakness of this earthly body.

It’s easy to fall into a pattern of self-pity, isn’t it? It’s easy to dwell on every single task with a “this might be the last time I” attitude.

There’s a reason it’s called the “shadow of death.” It casts its shadow over everything and insists on following right behind.

  1. I do that Shelly. I think, “will I be here next Christmas?” “How many more times will I see my grandsons? “. I know I shouldn’t think that. Only the Lord knows. Who would have thought my healthy looking 35 year old husband would have a heart attack getting ready for work. We thought we had a whole lifetime together.

  2. That struck a nerve.! For years I refused to plan because I assumed that I wouldn’t live long enough. Even now I’m still reluctant even though my natural bent is to plan things out thoroughly.
