There are some days when we tend to let the “blues” get the best of us. It might be a Monday, the first day after an exciting, restful weekend. It could be a Wednesday, after a trying first of the week, now it’s hard to get over the hump. It might even be a Thursday, when it seems you have every weight under the sun resting on your shoulders.
It doesn’t matter what day of the week, whether it’s dreadful Mondays, stressful Wednesdays, or even if you’re dealing with the Thursday blues, you can still put your best foot forward. It’s all in your attitude.
Let’s say, you’re dealing with the Thursday blues. You’re not looking forward to the office presentation. You have a long to-do list. On top of that, you’ve got deadlines to meet. Well here’s encouragement today; to know that when stress comes knocking, when anxiety comes, when worry comes, you can let peace answer the door. You don’t have to accept the Thursday blues, you can look forward to the good news.
Good news is all around you today. You’re blessed with not just any day, but it’s the day that the Lord has made. After all, everyday when you wake up, a miracle happens. What’s the miracle? You are!
God has favored you with blessings. A brand new day’s mercy. A new faithfulness. A new grace. Now, it’s up to you. It’s all in the attitude. You can go around sour, irritable, grumpy; or you can be of good cheer. You can take heart. You can get a new excitement. Not because everything is good, but because it’s working for your good.
Today is a new day, a chance to make it better than the day before. That’s it. It’s all in the challenge. You don’t have to accept the Thursday blues, you can gain a new perspective. When you welcome a new day with a good attitude, God will favor you and show you the good news!
