How do you feel about Monday mornings? I know so many people who really despise them! I used to fall into that same category, until I changed my attitude.
Week after week, I would fall short and miss the mark with this or that. But then, each Monday morning began to represent a new week with a fresh start to get it right. I know that God's mercies are new every morning, and I am so grateful for that fresh mercy, but I need to give myself a break as well.
I can be very critical of myself and get downright depressed if I allow my mind to beat me up for all of my failures. That's why it has become a very important part of my life to celebrate Monday's as a fresh new week, and to glorify God for His mercies as I approach the new week with a renewed heart and spirit.
If you've been down on Monday's perhaps you should take a fresh new look at the opportunity to start each week anew with God.
Lamentations 3:22-23 "The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness."
