Monday: Being Thankful

Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Romans 15:13

Some Mondays it’s difficult to be thankful. The weather in Wisconsin looks and feels more like January this past week. The cold has been penetrating, as snow layers the ground. Yet, the sunsets are deeply rich in color against bleak skies.

Things can entangled our lives like thick, twisted bare branches. Family problems, community commitments, workloads or health issues tend to raise stress levels which affects our well-being. Monday rolls around and it’s a reminder we will need to do it all over again. 

Behind those thick limbs of daunting challenges, there’s hope. No matter what the struggle, God is that bright light which brings richness to our dull and too busy lives. The point is, to keep our eyes on Him.

May you seek the hope God gives through His joy and peace. Then thank Him with the fullness of your heart.
