Does anyone else wake up on Monday morning feeling like it should still be Sunday?
Sometimes life goes by quickly, the weekends fly by, and rest feels like a distant dream. It is easy to become overwhelmed with the Monday blues and the feeling that we have a whole week ahead.
But I encourage myself, and each of you, to pray today - refocus and renew. And remember the plans that have been set for us. Instead of this being another week of work, let's remember this is one more week that has been granted us as a blessing to give to others.
We have one more week to influence youth lives.
We have one more week to share God's love.
We have one more week to grow, be strengthened, and to build new and deeper relationships with those around us.
We have one more week to make the world a better place.
My favorite verse states: "For I know the plans I have for you', declares the Lord, 'plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you hope and a future' - Jeremiah 29:11"
Today is a day of hope and future! Here's to a new, exciting week! Happy Monday, everyone.
