I take Mondays off so today is my "Monday," if you will. Unlike many, I love my "Mondays," I love the anticipation of starting a new week full of possibilities and hope--and of course challenges and difficulties, but as a follower of Jesus Christ I live with the hope that God will "work all things together for the good of those who love him and are called according to his purpose" (Rom 8:28).
I'm very eager to grow in my pursuit of Jesus this week by advancing in prayer, Bible study, Bible memory, service to others, healthy eating, exercise, and the enjoyment of all of the graces of God in my life.
Thanks, Lord, for the privilege of life today and of knowing you. Please help me to make the most of every breath for the glory of your name and the good of others and the joy of my own soul!
