Battling Monday

Battling Monday

Whether you like it or not, Monday always comes back.

Some days it’s hard to get out of bed, but it’s always hardest to wake up smiling sunny on a Monday morning. The fun of the weekend is over. There’s a full week of work ahead of you. And doggone it, you’d rather just lay around in your jammies with a good book and drink coffee. The thing of it is, though, Monday has a way of always showing up at your door. How do you deal with that?

Personally, I head right to some uplifting reading. Currently, besides scripture, I’ve been spending my Monday mornings in Ann Voskamp’s The Way of Abundance. Here’s a little gem I read today that I just might tuck into my pocket while I battle this Monday…

“In the stressful times, seek God.
In the painful times, praise God.
In the terrible times, trust God.
And at all times, thank God.”
