It is Monday morning and the week ahead looms in my mind – so much to do. Some things I am eagerly anticipating, others feel like a weight. All the worries and cares in my life rush in – especially on Monday mornings. What shall I do?
I will cast my cares on the Lord for he cares for me!
I will consider the birds chirping around my house this morning and remember they neither sow, nor reap nor gather into barns, but My Father feeds them
I will remember my Father knows my needs and so I am free to seek Him and His kingdom above what he provides.
I will not borrow from all the potential troubles ahead but give today’s cares to the Lord
I will lift up my heart to the Lord and not be anxious – trusting in his provision and care for me as a good Father.
I will remember that even in difficulty, stress, embarrassment, failure, loss – You are my refuge and strength and nothing can separate me from Your love.
So Lord I give You this day and this week with eyes turned to You – incline my heart after You – may this week by Your Spirit be used to shape me increasingly to the image of Your Son and may I find this week, in ways I have have never experienced before, that in YOU alone all my longings are met.
In Jesus Name
