The Gift Of Monday

Why do we grumble about Monday?
When did Monday become the enemy? 
When did we decide that Friday was a good day, a gift and yet Monday was a curse?
Was it when Adam and Eve sinned and had to "work" to sustain themselves?
Was it when we bought into the worlds idea that life should be fun 24/7 and all about me?

 God's word tells us a different story. A story where work is good, gratifying and will produce results that will last, not wither away like Kansas corn in August. Results that will nourish us and produce an inheritance for eternity.

“Work willingly at whatever you do, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people. Remember that the Lord will give you an inheritance as your reward, and that the Master you are serving is Christ. —Colossians 3:23-24
And also that every man should eat and drink, and enjoy the good of all his labor, it is the gift of God. Ecclesiastes 3:13

He must labor, performing with his own hands what is good, so that he will have something to share with one who has need.
Ephesians 4:28

Our Mondays and Fridays are numbered. The Bible tells us our life is like a vapor. A vapor blankets the earth early in the morning, creating a mist most of our eyes will never see. By the time we rise, it has vanished. It is short lived, temporary and gone in the blink of an eye. Our minds do not even consider it.
So it is with our lives. 

Today is Monday, a day to witness the grace of Him. 
He has placed us here for His purpose. He has people for us to smile on, to share His love, His kindness, His touch. 
The world around us is in pain. We know the Truth and we do not share it. 
Today, there is something He has for each of us to do. Will we see it or will our selfishness blind our eyes?

Let us not live as the world begs us, running from one mindless activity to the next. Let us be thoughtful of our choices, knowing He has planned good things for us.
God wants us to enjoy abundant life. A life that will leave us full, blessed and content.
The world will leave us empty, hungry for the next good feeling fix.....never filling our soul. 
A day will never satisfy our soul.

Let God be the seal that protects our soul,making it secure and ready to be filled with Him. Only then will we overflow with the blessings He brings us. We will look at Mondays with new eyes, ones that see the truth of each day.... each one a gift.
