Meditation Monday: Introduction

"Make me understand the way of Your precepts; So shall I meditate on Your wonderful works." 
~ Psalm 119:27 NKJV

Mondays are tough.

But they're awesome.

Monday is the most common day for heart attacks. If you don't like your job, it can be tough to get out of bed on Mondays.

At the same time, Monday is a day full of possibilities, where our strength's been recovered by the weekend.

It's a busy day. An exciting day. A day where we can be overwhelmed, yet thankful for the fresh start.

My posts tend to be long (I'm naturally wordy). But for the month of September, I'm going to try to make this series brief. A verse to think on. To meditate on. A few thoughts. That's it. I hope to keep them under 250 words.

Because we're busy.

And our busyness (at least for me) tends to make us push aside God.

But if we just take the time, we find that God can help us get through the crazy hours, the crazy days, the crazy weeks.

We find that, by keeping God in focus, by thinking about His Word, we start to realize how great He is, and how He's powerful enough to handle any of our problems, even when we're overwhelmed by them. We begin to understand that He's got it all covered, and as He did "impossible" things in the past, so He can work those same things today, if it's His will, and if it's for our best.

Why Monday? Well, I think we could all use a little encouragement on Mondays.

So let's focus on Him. Focus on His Word. And see what He wants to teach us.
