"All things are become new."* That's a great way to start the week!
When the old stereotypical view of Monday morning started creeping in this morning, I recognized it, stomped on it, and realized I had the authority to totally reverse the claim that Monday mornings are sluggish and that there is an inevitable dread with nothing to look forward to the rest of the week.
An idea from Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures (p. 60) came to thought: “Soul has infinite resources with which to bless all mankind and happiness would be more readily attained and would be more secure in our keeping if sought in Soul.”
So, right here, while getting out of bed on a Monday morning, I can claim those “infinite resources” – of insightful love, intelligent care, effective solutions, and abundant supply for this morning.
God’s work is done and it is good. So I can go forward, knowing that God’s work is NEVER undone. That God has the authority to fulfill His purpose and supplies us with whatever is needed to do so. God furnishes all good and we can drop all of our own planning, scheming, speculating and dreaming and fully lean on God.
Another inspiring idea from Proverbs in the Bible (ch. 3 verse 5) flew into thought: "Trust in the Lord with all thine heart.” What a full breath of fresh air that is! “In all your ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct your paths.” What a relief!
We know what we are supposed to do this week: acknowledge God, Love, Truth in everything we see and do. And we know what to expect: God will direct our paths.
God is infinite, all-intelligent, all-wise, all-knowing. God is Love. This is what is directing our paths this week. Wow. What a week is in store for us all.
