Mondays….they come once every seven days. Do you dread them, mourn the end of another weekend, or look forward in anticipation to another week?
I have a love hate relationship with Mondays. A lot of my feelings towards Mondays depends on how busy my weekend was versus how restful it was. When I hear people wishing on Mondays that they wish is was the weekend already, it makes me sad thinking they are wishing their lives away. Living every day to the fullest includes even Mondays.
I like routine. I like fresh starts. I like Mondays….even when I’m tired, even after a busy weekend with little time for rest, even when I know the week ahead promises to be busy.
This particular Monday, it begins the last week of what I know as normal. Life will become more messy, more tangled, more complicated, but it will be okay. I recently read in a devotional about our lives being pieced together by our Heavenly Father like a patchwork quilt. Instead of being tangled and tossed and strewn randomly around by the wind like the loose branches in the woods, I choose to believe that my life is pieced together with purpose by the One who sees the greater picture.
So, this Monday, as we go through our normal weekly routine, knowing that on Friday, my husband will close the door on a chapter in his life when he steps out of his workplace for the last time, we trust that our Father is already working out the details for the million Mondays and every day in-between to come.
Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrw will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble. Matthew 6:34
So, whatever you may be facing this Monday or any day, trust that the One who created you has it all figured out…sufficient for the day is its own troubles. Here’s to hoping for a magnificent Monday!
