Beginning Again

Another week begins in the morning mists; what kind of week will this be?

For many, there is hard work ahead, there may be tasks at hand that are not pleasant, so will the week be a bad one?  I should hope not!

Whatever our plans this week might be, take a minute and recall that God is near at hand, that He is right there to see us through. When our tasks are not pleasant, do we dwell on the unpleasantness or do we focus on Him?  I say let’s focus on Him as we go through our days.  Oh how often I blog on this subject!  But why do I keep coming back to it?

Probably to remind myself!

Like you, I have struggles and challenges most of the time, and when I see only the struggles, the days are long indeed.  As I go through those days, my mood begins to darken and sometimes I even wonder what the point of it all is.  Usually, right about at that point, a thought comes into my mind: Why should I despair when God is right here?  Why should I tire when the source of my strength is within me in the person of His Spirit?

Then, everything changes for me.  My strength returns, I am fresh with determination and hope and filled with His peace, and then, do you know what happens then?

Those problems and struggles don’t seem so big after all, and I am amazed at how easily they can be remedied.  So as we begin our week in the morning mists of Monday, let’s draw near to God, the source of all strength and goodness and let Him lead us through our days’ work, praising and thanking Him as we go through another week!

    There is nothing that can compare with abiding in our Source of all our strength, the omniscient, omnipresent, omnipotent Heavenly Father. Great thoughts. By the way, you post some lovely photos. Are these your own photography?
