One of the first things that Bro Eli Soriano and Bro Daniel Razon tell newly-baptized brethren in Members of the Church of God International is to ask God to teach us how to count the number of days in our lives. It is stated in Psalms 90:12 (KJV)
So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.
Bro Eli taught us that we should know how to count the days we are inside the flock. He shows us the importance of a day inside the Church compared to a thousand days outside. He read to us the verse in Psalms 84:10
For a day in thy courts is better than a thousand. I had rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God, than to dwell in the tents of wickedness.
Today, February 4th of 2012, marks the 2556.75thth day of my wife inside the congregation. I thank God for giving my wife such number of days in His flock. These are the days that my wife has remained firmly with her faith with His help. 2556.75 days in the courts; days that I personally saw and felt the mercy and love of God for my wife.
May God continuously give my wife fruitful days inside the Church. Thank You for the days You have given my wife.
