Mondays are always very rough days for me. I find that after the busyness of Sunday that I am not only physically tired but I'm also emotionally worn out. Those are the times that Satan seems to kick me! He is crafty and knows exactly when to pounce.
Yesterday was one of those days. Being a pastor's wife can be tough at times. People tend to be pretty insensitive in their criticism or they look to me as the one to approach about everything that is not right in the church from missing tables to decorations that are askew. Usually I take it in stride but on Mondays things bother me more than normal and I feel down and discouraged. I have to keep telling myself, "It's Monday." "This is not reality." "Just get through today and tomorrow will be better." I really need to cling to the Lord's promises on Monday.
Sure enough, I opened my eyes at 4:00 this morning and felt totally refreshed! I feel happy and rested and totally content.
Remind me of this next Monday!
