Episode Notes


Psalm 90:1-11 NIV Lord, you have been our dwelling place throughout all
generations. 2 Before the mountains were born or you brought forth the whole
world, from everlasting to everlasting you are God. 3 You turn people back to
dust, saying, “Return to dust, you mortals.” 4 A thousand years in your sight are
like a day that has just gone by, or like a watch in the night. 5 Yet you sweep
people away in the sleep of death—they are like the new grass of the morning:
6 In the morning it springs up new, but by evening it is dry and withered. 7 We are
consumed by your anger and terrified by your indignation. 8 You have set our
iniquities before you, our secret sins in the light of your presence. 9 All our days
pass away under your wrath; we finish our years with a moan. 10 Our days may
come to seventy years, or eighty, if our strength endures; yet the best of them
are but trouble and sorrow, for they quickly pass, and we fly away. 11 If only we
knew the power of your anger! Your wrath is as great as the fear that is your due.

1) If we could see God as He is, we would give Him the REVERENCE He is
2) If we could see God as He is, we would be more CAREFUL with the time
we have been ALLOTTED.

Psalm 90:12 NIV Teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of

3) Remembering our time is LIMITED provides us with WISDOM to know
how to spend our limited time.

Regret #2: I wish I hadn’t WORKED SO HARD.
“This came from every male patient that I nursed. They missed their children’s
youth and their partners companionship.” –Bronnie Ware
“Women also spoke of this regret, but as most were from a older generation,
many of the women had not been breadwinners. All of the men I nursed, deeply
regretted so much of their lives on the treadmill of a work existence.” -Bronnie
Regret #1: I wish I’d had the COURAGE, to live a life TRUE to myself, not
the life others EXPECTED of me.

“This was the most common regret of all. When people realize their life is almost
over and look back clearly on it, it is easy to see how many dreams have gone
unfulfilled. Most people had not honored even half of their dreams and had to die
knowing that it was due to the choices they had made, or not made. Health
brings a freedom very few realize, until they no longer have it.” -Bronnie Ware
If I don’t do EVERYTHING I possibly can:

 I’ll never MAKE IT.
 I’ll be POOR.
 I won’t be ACCEPTED.
 I won’t MEASURE UP.
