Sometimes, uneventful Mondays are just what is needed. When the day is quiet and unassuming, maybe that is when we should be most thankful. Thankful for what we do have, as well as what we don’t have. When days are quiet and just routine, then there is no crisis we have to deal with. That’s a good thing.
Oh there has been plenty to do today. We returned Sunday evening after ten days away. My husband finished unloading the RV today, and I looked around in dismay. You’d think we had been gone a month! As was expected I’m completely exhausted after the trip, but I will pace myself and deal with it. Adding to the mix, I also brought some kind of respiratory virus home with me….
God is still, and always good. Psalm 136:1
God knows my need. Philippians 4:19
God is ready and willing to guide me – when I listen and obey His plans, not my own. Proverbs 3:5-6
It rained all the way home and has been raining since. I really need some sunshine. I thrive on sunshine. It elevates my mood, increases my energy, and just makes me happy! But as I sat looking out at the rain and listening to the gentle dripping on the gazebo, I was reminded. I was reminded of how we need the rain…along with the sun.
We need the rain to water the garden, to water the earth. Watering the soil gives life and helps things to grow, to be beautiful and fruitful. As it is still raining today, spend some time allowing the living water of the Word to water the thirsty garden of your soul. You will grow and flourish and show the beauty of the Son to those around you.
So how about you? What are you recognizing in your Monday moments? I would love to hear from you in the comments.
Drinking in the Word with you!
