Is it Monday Already?

Blargh, It’s Monday again. Time to leave your family and go back to the everyday monotony that is work. If you are blessed to have a job that you love, praise God for it. If not, I have a few tidbits for you. I had planned to share this as part of a larger post later this month, but God laid it on my heart yesterday to go ahead and post it(and helped me to wake up early enough to finish it).

For the last few weeks I have been attending a church that streams in messages from +Life.Church . The pastor yesterday spoke about forgiveness, and used the very verse I had planned to share. Click here for the message from 4/3/2016.

Jesus tells us “…love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you,” Matthew 5:44

If you have a job you love, thank God for your blessings and pray for others who are not so fortunate. If you dislike your current job or situation at work, pray about it.

God knows our wants, but He also wants us to ask for help and believe that He will help. It may not be in the way that you expect, or ask for. Your boss may not get run over by a bus, but he might transfer to another department, or get an unexpected job offer in another state.

Try to pray for your boss as well. Pray for good things for him instead of evil. If nothing else, it will help your own outlook, but it may help his as well.

What is your Monday motivation this week? Is there a verse or quote you are focusing on to get you through it?
