Monday.

You know it’s true.  You know what else is true?

“He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.”
-Revelation 12:4, ESV

HALLELUJAH!!!!  I’m thinking there won’t be Mondays either…

Monday.

You know I like to get you guys thinking first thing in your week. Chew on this one for a while! But while you’re sitting at your desk or wherever you might be sitting and wondering which hates who more, allow me to share a little Jesus love as you get your day started so hopefully the hate will start to dissipate.

“‘Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me — watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.'” -Matt. 11:28, MSG

Even on Mondays.

Be His.

Monday

Can you feel this? I mean seriously though. Monday is a carnivorous, giant, slobbering beast that is chasing me into my deepest darkness. Also…I kind of wish they were extinct. I know I try to usually be really upbeat on Monday mornings, but I’m missing my motivation this week and I’m sure I’m not the only one. So let’s take a look at what God has to say to those of us who are missing out mojo this Monday morning.

“Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.”
Romans 12:12, NIV

I like this verse because it doesn’t say that we won’t face troubles, and it doesn’t say we have to get over it and paint a smile on our cracked and parched lips. It just says stick to it. Keep moving even when you don’t feel like it. Imagine a T-Rex is chasing you or something.

Be His.

Salt.

That one time I hammocked during a sunrise at the beach.  And it was 27 outside.

I have heard a lot of people say that if your body is craving salt, you need to eat it because your body is trying to communicate a deficiency to you.  Is that true of everything?  I made up my schedule early this morning over coffee and then…I lost my gumption.  Someone found my “Get Up and Go” switch and they flipped it!  I just didn’t want to do any of the things I was so motivated to do this morning.  All I wanted to do was…nothing.  I just wanted to rest.   Continue reading

Monday!

Good blessed Monday morning to you my friends!  (So yeah…it isn’t morning technically. What do you want from me?  I had a chance to sleep in and I did it.  Sue me!)

I want to make sure at some point in your Monday though, Jesus comes in as a full-stop interruption.  So let’s get some Scripture in our eyes, some shifting in our minds, and some grace and God in our hearts!

“Anyone who meets a testing challenge head-on and manages to stick it out is mighty fortunate.  For such persons loyally in love with God, the reward is life and more life.”
James 1:12, MSG

Be His.
