TGIM!

Thank God it's Monday!

Does that seem a little weird? Usually we look forward to the end of the week, not the beginning of the week. We spend an awful lot of time each trying to get through the five-day work week in an effort to get some time off over the weekend.

But what if we rejoiced in today? Thank God it's Monday! Here's a wonderful, brand-new day at the beginning of a brand-new week. We can start afresh and make today the best day of the week - not just the first in a string of "getting through" days.

And that ye study to be quiet, and to do your own business, and to work with your own hands, as we commanded you. 1 Thessalonians 4:11

Paul instructed the church at Thessalonica to cultivate a calm, quiet spirit and to focus on their own work. Nothing distracts us and shakes us up more than looking around to see what everyone else is doing. We are called to do certain work (at home and on any outside job we have), and this Scripture reminds us to be diligent in that work. This means having a great attitude along with that calm spirit from the beginning of the week to the end.

And how do we do that? By staying in God's Word each day and following through on the instructions He gives us.When our eyes are on the Lord, we have peace of mind and a calm heart. Only then can we have a victorious week, not just an ordinary week.

Thank God it's Monday!
