Welcome to a brand new week! I’m so thankful for a clean slate every time Monday roles around. On the Fearless Journey we’ve reserved Mondays specifically for motivation and encouragement. Our God is a God of fresh starts. Every seven days we get a fresh start in the form of a new week. How our attitude is toward the week is crucial to how successful and productive our week is. One of my favorite Bible verses is Acts 20:24 it says, “But my life is worth nothing to me unless I use it for finishing the work assigned to me by the Lord Jesus – the work of telling the Good News about the wonderful grace of God.”
This is such a great reminder that our most important job on earth isn’t our worldly vocation. As believers our most important work is to spread Jesus and to spread Jesus is to spread love. So, don’t just look at this week as a five day cycle of clocking in and out, but rather look at it as an opportunity. An opportunity to do your REAL job which is to spread the Good News. It’s an opportunity to love people well and to serve those around you. Don’t miss it.
Do one thing today that will make you happy. Whether it’s stopping at Starbucks to get your favorite seasonal coffee before work, going for a walk, wearing your favorite pair of shoes, taking a bubble bath, building something, or whatever your happy thing is. The point is to take an action of self love to set the week in a positive direction. Who said you can only treat yourself on weekends!?
