I would like to start by saying YES; Monday’s are the worst. Hands down. No contest. They absolutely are. But today’s post is not going to be an unprompted rant on my feelings towards Monday’s. I would like to talk to you about what we can all do to make Monday’s just a little better! (Side note: If you are someone who loves Monday’s I will never understand you, but I respect you for seeing the good in life! And maybe this new thing we are going to try and do here will just help make Monday’s even greater in your eyes!) I would like to change up the way our blog posts currently are and transition into something a little different. My hopes for the new setup are to provide a short but engaging motivational post for you every Monday that extend encouragement for the week ahead, comfort for how the week previous was, and above all else to simply present you with something that can help to brighten your Mondays, making it not the worst day of the week! Who knows, maybe a few months in we might start to look forward to Mondays rather than dreading them? (If we’re lucky!)
Our first Monday Motivational (Devotional that is motivating? If you have a better title please share!) will be a recap of what our staff and counselors heard during our Mid-Winter event earlier this month! We had an incredible speaker that brought some powerful truths to us. It was so enlightening that I think it would be the best choice for week one of our Monday Motivational’s. The goal of this will not be for me to provide you with those hard to find answers that you have been seeking for the past year, or even for me to reveal something so profound that it turns your spiritual walk upside-down. I simply want to come to you as a fellow believer and extend an arm, or thought, of encouragement and motivation! As Proverbs 27:17 tells us “Iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.” It would be ideal that the outcome of this is a network of believers who come together for some iron sharpening iron motivation every Monday! I look forward to sharing with you next week all the wonderful truths we heard over our Mid-Winter weekend!
