You grab your favorite cup of coffee, sigh deeply and go to work. It’s not that you hate your job, well sometimes, but there so many other things you would rather be doing. So many other people you would rather spend your time with. You know you work for a paycheck but you wish that could be a little better too. The week seems so long. How can I conquer these Monday morning blues?
Maybe you’re a student and you can’t bring coffee to school. You don’t fit in with the kids in your classes. There’s that one teacher that seems to have it in for you. I can’t believe the weekend went so fast. How could I forget that assignment? Ugh. How can I conquer these Monday morning blues?
Maybe you’re a stay at home mom with small kids, or a retired senior facing another day of cleaning the house and isolation. Sunday was great but now what? How can I conquer these Monday morning blues?
It’s simple really. Change your perspective. Worker, it’s not about the paycheck, sure it helps but that’s not why you are there. Student you’re not in school just because it’s a state law or just because you need an education. Mom or retiree, you can still make a difference. You have all entered the mission field. [Insert Twilight Zone music here.]
See if we really believe that God orders our steps. If we really believe that He knew us before we were born then He placed us where we are today. It’s not meaningless it’s a mission. So to beat the Monday morning blues, take all teaching you received Sunday, all the Spirit of God you were filled with, all the joy you received, all the encouragement and love the church members gave you and give it away TODAY!
Mission trips don’t just happen in Africa. They happen every Monday. God has strategically placed you in your job, school or neighborhood. Meet the day with expectation for God to do miracles today. Expect God to provide you with an opportunity to move someone a little closer to Christ TODAY. You are a missionary on assignment to Connect Others to God & Church today.
