It's Monday morning.
How many of you are starting out with a large to-do list already? I know I sure am. Monday is the busiest day for me, personally, because it's the only day I don't normally need to go somewhere.
Now, one might think that very fact would lead to a more relaxed day. But in truth, it means I start out the week with a mental list to accomplish as much as I possibly can today because it gets harder to do so as the week goes on.
So here I am, at 7:30 on a beautiful Monday morning, already feeling behind.
That's not the way to start off a new week and that's only setting myself up for feeling flustered and stressed.
Today, I'm going to approach Monday differently. What if I think about all of the things I'm thankful for as much as I do all of the things I need to get done? What if I don't keep one eye on the time in an effort to not "fall behind" and just enjoy or do my best at the activities or chores that I do tackle?
What if I let it all go? What if I give God a chance to fill my heart and mind with the joy and peace He has for me on this Monday morning?
Today, I'm going to do just that.
If you're struggling this morning, I challenge you do do the same thing.
Come on - Let's let it all go and see where this beautiful day takes us!
