Okay, I admit that I have to remind myself of this quite often. If we aren’t careful, we can let Monday, or whatever day we return to work, to become oppressive. So, I just want to give you the short reminder that the 2nd day of the week is a blessing.
Remember to let the joy of the LORD be your strength, no matter what your Monday challenges may be.
Nehemiah 8:10 (NKJV)
10 Then he said to them, “Go your way, eat the fat, drink the sweet, and send portions to those for whom nothing is prepared; for this day is holy to our Lord. Do not sorrow, for the joy of the Lord is your strength.”
Remember that we represent God’s image, His presence, His glory and His character in every environment we enter.
Colossians 3:17 (NKJV)
17 And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.
Remember that no matter how challenging or dysfunctional the culture, we have the power to make the ground on which we step…Holy Ground.
So, make sure you don’t allow your Monday to become Mournday!
Breathe life into every room, every interaction today. Just as complaining is contagious, so is joy.
