Good morning, folks!
If I were to list all the things I need/want to get moving on this Monday and then all the things I’ll still have waiting for me tomorrow no matter how much I get after it today…I think I would totally freak myself out (and bore you).
So, I won’t do it.
Instead, I will remind myself and hopefully encourage you with this fact:
He doesn’t guarantee us tomorrow or even tell us to make sure our ducks are in a row for it (quite the opposite if you read Matthew 6), but he does promise this:
“’My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” (2 Corinthians 12:9).
And while I’m pretty sure that doesn’t mean that He’ll wave his God-wand and plunk a passel of finished painting and sewing projects down in my lap, I think it does mean that if I give Him my crankiness, my sleepiness, my I-don’t-want-to-do-this-because-my-feet-hurt-ness…He will give me the grace today to be kind, alert, and non-whiny enough to love others and bring glory to Him, regardless of how many things I check off the list.
Let me assure you that I am primarily preaching to the choir (myself), but I know so many of you are harried mamas, students, professionals, etc., and I have the oddest inkling that I might not be alone in wanting to skip Move-it Monday entirely.
(How about Mull-over-it-then-do-it-tomorrow Monday? Better?).
And yet, that’s not really an option, now is it?
So, do I what I hope to do today, and take the grace He offers for the now.
And remember—when you are weak, He is strong.
