Happy Monday and welcome to my Monday Blog, my friends!
Hope all are well and ready for a new week of…whatever you need! I’m reminded of several years back when I worked in a sales office and Monday mornings were reserved for sales meetings. We started off each meeting by going around the table and each of us had the opportunity to discuss whatever we needed, but mostly negative comments were spoken. There was this one fella though, who wore a distinct and sincere, big smile, who had the same response every single Monday: “Just damn glad to be here!” Would you believe that after many Mondays to follow, over half the sales staff changed their negative comments to anything but! I can honestly say that one positive person, among over twenty-five, changed the vibe around that whole company! As they say in some circles, “It was a beautiful thing!”
This reflection reminds me of how Satan works. Satan loves ruining our day – One day at a time, too! Our suffering is his delight. Don’t let him in. Ignore him. He’s the great slanderer, demon, adversary and a major spoiler!! Hey, he can spoil more than one day, too. He can ruin your entire life and that’s his objective! Ya know, he can’t come into your life unless you let him. Not today Satan, not tomorrow, not ever!!
My prayer for us all this week is that we’ll be conscious of this possibility – and diligently stay on guard – don’t fall for his dirty tricks and negativity! He’ll promise you the moon and give you hell, literally! He’ll let you down every single time. He never keeps his end of the bargain. He brings heartaches, nothing but heartaches!
Here’s a sure-fire way to be safe: ask Jesus to come into your heart and protect you from all harm and evil. He will too, because He truly loves you – He died for you. That pretty much says it all.
GOD is Good! GOD is Great!! Always!!!
I love you,
