I don’t normally post every day, but as I was reading my post from yesterday my spirit said “and now it’s Monday” what advice do you have for today. Y’all my spirit often demands a little more so now it’s Monday and I want to share with you how I feel about Monday.
I used to dread Monday, I would get sad on Sunday because the weekend was ending and Monday was coming. One day as I was sitting at my desk moping, yes moping, (I was a mess), the Holy Spirit reminded me that this was a day the Lord had made and I should rejoice and be glad in it. I was immediately chastised in the spirit.. how could I dread any day that the Lord made and… and …he allowed me to wake up to see it? See my dilemma? I had to decide right then and there how to view Monday in a way that honors my love for Christ.
Most people who know me at home and at work will tell you that Monday is now my favorite day. I am excited “When Monday Comes” because it’s another chance, another way for me to try and get it right. I look forward to Monday and I appreciate it as another day the Lord has made.
“We have all these great people around us as examples. Their lives tell us what faith means. So we, too, should run the race that is before us and never quit. We should remove from our lives anything that would slow us down and the sin that so often makes us fall. We must never stop looking to Jesus. He is the leader of our faith, and he is the one who makes our faith complete. He suffered death on a cross. But he accepted the shame of the cross as if it were nothing because of the joy he could see waiting for him. And now he is sitting at the right side of God’s throne. Think about Jesus. He patiently endured the angry insults that sinful people were shouting at him. Think about him so that you won’t get discouraged and stop trying.”
