It’s Monday and many of us are already craving Friday.
That is on the one hand understandable; the week can be hard and we sometimes need something to which to look forward to help us make it through.
But Lord, don’t let us look forward to the end of the week so much that we fail to see the wonder of this day and to take full advantage of this moment. Use Friday to give us hope that rest is coming but let that promised rest somehow permeate our living in all days; help us to rest in you even in the most challenging times.
It’s Monday but Friday’s coming; that is good.
But remind us that it’s also good that it’s Monday.
