Supposedly, there's a Monday in January that is the most depressing day of the year. Someone figured out that winter's only half over, it's still old, still dark, Christmas is over, the VISA bill is due and life. Just. Sucks. Have you had yours yet?
I had my Blue Monday this week. I was low. I was tired before the week had even started. All the things I had worked so hard on last week hadn't gotten me any farther ahead. My wife was in pain recovering from a minor surgery, and the week ahead was overwhelming. Ever been there?
Then my phone buzzed with an email. Without hope, I thought, "What can I lose? It can't get any worse..."
What I found in my inbox was one of the most timely and encouraging emails I've ever gotten. Suddenly I had new life! Someone cared! God had heard my plea for hope and it truly felt like He was speaking through this person. As tears streamed down my face, I thought of Proverbs 10:11, "The mouth of a righteous man is a fountain of life," and I determined that I wanted everything that came out of MY mouth that day would be a source of life for the people around me. Wanna join me? It feels really good, both to receive AND give words of life.
Have a great day,
From a 6 year old's philosophy, "We are so lucky", from a much older perspective, we are so blessed. Enjoy your blessing and spend some time to get to know HIM. God bless you.
