Hello everyone…and a “Happy Monday” to you! Welcome today, to “A New Day of New Hope Blog”…thru the Risen Hope Ministries! I am so happy to have you with me today; and my prayer for you; is that you will truly feel the loving presence of God, as you take each new step into this brand new week!
You know…as we begin another new week, we can sometimes get our thoughts caught up into previous days…where we struggled, just to make it through the week. I have found that when we get our thoughts back into the past, rather than these present times; then we tend to see each day ahead, as though these moments of the past may relive themselves all over again, which can make us feel hopelessly down, even before the week begins.
I have had weeks, where I felt as if I barely made it. It seemed that the further I got into the week…the more I experienced, which only made me feel tired and drained, from moments that were attempting to take me down. From there, I began to feel so overwhelmed; that I began to dread the start of another new week…but later I came to see that those feelings only came from a tired mind that wasn’t thinking straight.
You know…it just goes to show how Satan feeds on weakness. It’s not only his plan to bring us low…but to keep us there; so we will continue to go in circles with our thoughts; which can make us feel at times, as though we have been caught up in a web; that seems almost impossible to get out of.
One thing that has helped me to start out the week right; is to take some time off on Sunday…and not only spend time with God…but also rest and let God refresh me and renew me in His Spirit. When my thoughts and heart have been refreshed and renewed in this way; then I am more prepared to leave the previous week behind and step into another new week…anticipating God’s very best for me!
Just think…we are about to enter another new week…with new possibilities; of things happening with God…in a way that we probably would have never imagined, from what we had experienced in the previous week. This is why we need to keep our focus straight ahead, rather than lingering back into days that have already passed us by.
Each new day, we should get out of bed and step into the footprints that God has left behind, for us to walk in. When we choose to start each day in this way; then we will always be in sync with Him…and rather than dread the week ahead, we will have hearts that anticipate the very best He longs to offer us.
Well…I don’t know about you; but I am ready to leave the previous week behind and step into another week with God! I truly hope and pray; that you will find God’s very best, as you start this brand new week with Him!
Take good care! Have a great day and I will hope to be with you again tomorrow! God bless!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…
