Let me share a little encouragement with you today, ok?
How do you begin your week? your day?
Feelings are fickle, and Satan’s a liar. Who or what I listen to can turn me and my family so in the wrong direction so easily. I know that beginnings and endings are important, so I know that the beginning of the day is important. Jesus showed this in His life and ministry, and we see it all through Scripture.
Being a stay-at-home wife and mom, I find my whole attitude and direction for the day and week can be determined by whether I give in to the flesh and listen to Satan’s voice on Monday Morning.
“I’m so tired. There’s too much to do. It’s going to be a hard day. A hard week. Why doesn’t my husband _____. My children should be _____. I can’t do it…”
Get thee behind me, Satan! Be gone!!
The voice of rejoicing, gratitude, thankfulness, trust and hope is the voice I will listen to!!! Mondays are GREAT! Glad, Rejoicing, Encouraged and Encouraging, And Thankful!
His grace is sufficient for me! Thank You, God, for all my blessings! Thank You for saving me, thank you for giving me a place to lay my head at night, a husband, children, work to do, health to do it, but more importantly, thank You for Your lovingkindness, which is better than life! There is nothing too hard for You. I have so much to be thankful for. I will trust You, and look at all the blessings. I will speak blessings, not curses, to my children. I will smile and be cheerful! I have control over my attitude, and feelings. I will let the Truth of God’s Word dictate in my life, not foolish feelings which come and go. God is the Lord of my life.
Thank You, that no matter what trials or troubles I may have this week, there is nothing too hard for You, God! Thank You that I have Your Holy Spirit living within me, and I can talk to You any time of the day or night. Thank You that the power that raised Jesus Christ from the dead, the power that made ordinary fisherman into powerful preachers of the gospel, the miraculous power that turned a few fishes and loaves into enough to feed a multitude, is present in my life today!! Praise God!!!
I will serve and listen to the Lord Jesus Christ and His Word today. I choose gladness, gratefulness, faithfulness, and a rejoicing, thankful heart today. It’s going to be a great week with God!
“Choose ye this day whom ye will serve: As for me and MY House, we will serve the LORD!”
