Monday new or Monday blues?

Why start a new day with an old you? Try something different, a new you maybe? Lamentations 3:22-23
"Through the Lord's mercies we are not consumed, because His compassion's fail not. They are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness.

I always start thinking about Monday, when I see people post things on Face Book about how bad it is. I thought to myself, it is not Mondays fault at all, how and what, we did with the weekend. I thought if we want to change how we view Mondays, maybe it is us that needs too change? Monday is coming whether we like it or not!

God's compassion for us never changes, His love never wavers. As it says above, they are new every morning, and how faithful is His giving us something new daily. The days we get are gifts from God because He cares. It is how we view ourselves in that picture. If we abuse, and ourselves, over the weekend and are feeling bad, how can we view any day as a gift?

Monday is always coming, and it is always a new day it will not change! So maybe we need to consider something different, something new, ourselves! Asking God for a change, asking Him to show us all how we need to make better use of the weekend. How we can use it to actually rest from our labors, and begin to view Monday as a fresh start to a new day that is a gift from God.

God's compassion's are new every morning, we miss them, because God is not in the forefront of our days! Oh we let Him in on Sunday, but forget Him by Monday morning. And thus the negative journey begins, passing everyday His gifts, living for Friday and already dreading Monday! Can you see the trap we have allowed ourselves to get caught up in? 

If the world is going to see a different you, than we have to put on each day what God has given us new. Not follow in the world's footsteps but God's. Stop and see His compassion's daily, and realize we have not been consumed, but have been given something fresh, something new to begin each day with.
Remember your view of the day will not change, until you have changed your view!
