Do you remember that song? If you caught the song title in the title of this post you are probably hearing the refrain.
“Just another Manic Monday, I wish it were a Sunday.”
Is this how you feel as you approach the week?
Are you dangling from your coffee cup begging for more energy and a way to work things out?
In our walk with God we don’t have to wait for rest. We can take it.
The kind I am speaking of is rest in His work. Resting by laboring only to believe in what God has done in His work on the cross.
Once Jesus was asked the following:
“What can we do to work the works of God.”
Jesus told them, “This is the only work God wants from you: Believe in the one he has sent.”
John 6:29 NLT
So are you having a manic Monday in the faith department?
Ask yourself this:
What am I believing?
What am I working so hard at that I just need to believe God about??
28-30 “Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.”
Really y’all I’m just another Samaritan woman seeking living water and pouring out where I see need for encouragement. I am 48, mother to four girls ages 16-26, Gigi to the most handsome 2-year-old little boy, Fibromyalgia warrior, minister, writer, and a lifetime learner.
I am writing my first book, slowly but surely, six chapters in, as our blessed first love has called me to share His glory in my story. I feel lost in that familiar desert place, and thankful for the manna that is there miraculously every day. I am overcoming hour by hour the condemning voices of the enemy and learning to love myself. It has been an arduous journey. This wordsmith journey, but so worth it.
I became a licensed minister in 2010. However, I do not currently work in the ministry. I share Christ's love through devotional blogging. I have a degree in Church Ministry, was pursuing my degree in Christian Care and Counseling at Oral Roberts University, but now am pursuing Life Coaching, and Neurolinguistic Programming Master Practioner Certifications and a business license.
I am a certified women’s biblical counselor through the Extraordinary Women's program at Light University. I am working on their Addiction and Recovery program now too. Yes, I am a glutton for punishment with a wealth of life experiences with which I can minister comfort to others. I'm a lover of a good book, writing, singing, and music, and my nemesis is the perpetual laundry pile. Blessings to you and yours, <3Melinda
