Grace for Mondays

               The Lord will hear when I call unto Him. Psalm 4:3
Mondays and I have a love - hate relationship. In the sense that I love to hate Mondays. Monday and me have never gotten along, the day just never goes right for me. Never! Something might break, or I'll forget to do things that are important. If I had to take a guess at the day the world ends, I would say Monday. The struggle is real, and Mondays often turn emotional.
 What I hadn't realized was Mondays are a perfect day for Grace. I'm independent, so it is hard for me to lean into the grace and mercy that Jesus is so willing to give. Mondays present a struggle for me and Jesus offers grace for the day. He calls out to my burdened heart, showing me through Scripture that He is here for me...for You.

God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. (Psalm 46:1)

My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth. (Psalm 121:2)

The Lord is gracious, and full of compassion ; slow to anger, and of great mercy. (Psalm 145:8 . Emphasis mine)

God knows each of us better than we know ourselves. So he knows that I find more of Him and grace on Monday; than I often do on a church attending Sunday.I believe he planned it that way. Because God meets us right where we are, right here in the now. My Savior meets an emotional me on my worst day, and He is willing to meet you wherever you are also!! Whether you are a Monday loather like me or maybe you're lonely and need a friend, perhaps you're stressed and need peace. Whatever you're going through, let Jesus meet you there. I promise He will show up in the most unexpected ways.

This song is one of my favorites :
