Rejoicing In The Day
As I write this article, I am aware it is Monday. Many people seem to have a dread that surrounds Mondays. People even refer to their low state as “The Monday Blues.” In truth, Monday is just a day. Monday comes every week like every other day. It is as faithful as Friday, Saturday or Sunday, but it is not those days. It is not really the first day of the week, though it is often given the credit or blame for the week’s start. It cannot take the position of the last day of the week for that honor is given to Saturday, though most people think that honor belongs to Friday, for which they often give thanks. Monday places second in the order of the days of the week. That’s right, Sunday is the first day of the week though it is commonly thought of as the last day of the weekend.
Is it possible that we could change our week by changing our attitude about Mondays? Have you ever thought that the same God who gives us Fridays is also the creator of Mondays? There is joy available for Mondays and every other day. God leaves the choice of experiencing that joy to us. The Psalmist tells us how we are to face our days no matter when they fall in the weekly sequence. (Ps. 118:11)“This is the day the Lord has made, we will rejoice and be glad in it.” So change your life by choosing to rejoice in the day God has provided even if it happens to be a Monday.
Rejoicing in the Day,
