Because it's Monday. And if you're anything like me, that little reality comes complete with a long list of to-dos.
So I just want to share a simple little verse. It's one I ran across a couple months ago--it stuck out to me for the first time. And I can't tell you how often I've repeated it since...
The Lord Himself will fight for you. Just stay calm. ~Exodus 14:14
Just stay calm. Folks, I can't think of three better words to start off a new week. Well, except perhaps "just sleep in." :)
But seriously, I don't know what your day or week looks like...
...maybe you're off to a day job that pays the bills but doesn't quite connect with your passion.
...or you're at home chasing a toddler or staring at heaps of laundry.
...maybe you're frantically preparing for next week's ACFW Conference.
...or you're dealing with frustration about not being able to attend the conference.
Whatever it is, whether you're tied up in knots or even just a teensy bit tangled, you can rest in the fact that you've got a God who's not only watching out for you...He's actually fighting for you.
So let's take a collective breath this Monday morning. Let's stay calm. And walk into this coming week with joy!
What are you looking to God to fight for you in this week?
