Dreading the Work-WEAK

Do you look forward to going to work on Mondays? Really; that’s your answer?
Have you ever gotten to the place where on Sunday you become melancholy because Monday is coming; melancholy to the point where it affects how you spend the rest of Sunday?
Now, I’m not sure if it is because people like to complain, but why do some people say that they hate Mondays? Why ‘Monday’ rather than Tuesday afternoon? Is your job that bad that you ‘hate’ Monday; really?
With our economy continuing to live the past seven years or so on a pacemaker and unemployment continuing to be a problem for many people across the USA; why would we not be grateful that we get to go to work on Monday?
I think it might be because whether we like our job or hate our job it is easy to miss that there is a greater purpose for what we do in this life. Or, do think that when the Bible tells us that God ‘directs’ and ‘orders our steps’, that is simply referring to what we do on the day that we go to church?
Or maybe it is because we are going through our work week in our own strength; not His. And that is why it is a work-WEAK.
If this is the case then I am suggesting that right now you STOP doing things in your own strength and ASK God to give you His strength:
“But those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.” (Isaiah 40:31 NKJV)
He will exchange our strength for His strength. That’s like taking out our little nine-volt battery (new or used it really doesn’t matter) and exchanging it for a DYNAMO! (which comes from the Greek word dunamis; meaning power)
He has a plan for our WHOLE life, and that includes Mondays – let Him do His job in creating great things in and through our lives!
We are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them. (Ephesians 2:10)
This next work week can actually be a work-STRENGTH when it is surrendered to a Heavenly Father who deeply loves you and wants to do great things through you and for you. – Go in the strength of God!
