Ahhh . . . Mondays. The day I like to read all the blogs I enjoy and fill my mind and heart with encouragement. It's the day of the week I look forward to most because it means I am at the start of a new week--when anything can happen.
My husband started a volunteer job last week that allows him free unlimited golf. His passion is golfing but being unemployed makes it almost impossible to persue. A blogger friend of mine sent me a gift certificate last week for helping her with some writing. I get to shop online at Barnes and Nobles--something I've had to forgo for the present.
I love how God provides us with those sweet blessings in the midst of our trials. So when Monday rolls around, I can't help but think about my writing. Is this the week something might be accepted? Is this the week, I'll write that knock-out chapter? Is this the week, someone will send me feedback that will change and improve my style forever?
When we push forward, it's the only way we'll see what God has in store for us. I heard a TV Evangelist say last week that if Ruth hadn't pushed forward when she was out scouring the fields for food, she wouldn't have found the handfuls left on purpose for her. I'm not a Bible scholar but this example tells me that I need to keep pushing forward with my writing because that handful of encouragement might come this week.
Will it for you too?
