One of the things in life that is most disheartening, to me at least, is when folks feel like giving up. When people feel like their is no hope. When we lose that sense that things can get better, can change, can be different.
In short, when people want to give up. When people think that there is no reason to hope.
We hear, oh, but things can change. Things can be different. It doesn’t have to be like that.
And, when we are broken, we say – impossible. That can’t happen. It won’t change.
If that is where you are on this Monday morning, listen to the word of Jesus from Matthew 21:
21 Then Jesus told them, “I tell you the truth, if you have faith and don’t doubt, you can do things like this and much more. You can even say to this mountain, ‘May you be lifted up and thrown into the sea,’ and it will happen. 22 You can pray for anything, and if you have faith, you will receive it.”
I know it’s Monday, and we hate Mondays.
But this Monday, this Monday is a new day! Each day is a new day. Each day, through faith, we get to start over. Each day is new. Full of new life, new hope, new grace.
This is a new day. It does have to be like a aways. Things can change. Things can be different. It isn’t impossible.
Now, through ourselves and our strength, yeah, nothing will change.
But, through God. Through faith. Through grace. Through His life, things can change. Things can be different. There is hope. There is life. There is a change for a new start.
Today, through faith.
Today, yes even today. Even this morning. There is a chance for a fresh start.
Things can be different. Things can change. Nothing is impossible.
Mondays are awesome! Through God’s grace, each new day is awesome.
Go out and live a fresh, new, loved life. For today is a new day. Nothing is impossible for God.
