Whew!  This weekend was jam-pack-filled full of activity!  I haven’t been so “on to the go” in quite some time so I’m feeling every ounce of my thirty-one years of age on this not-as-warm-as-I’d-like-it Monday.  Without a doubt, I’m battling a case of the Mondays.
This weekend I spent over 20 hours at one church or another.  Yikes!

Between worship team rehearsals, three worship services, helping out with an event at church, teaching my first ASL class and rehearsing for a passion play I’m in during first week of April, I’m pretty well worn out!  It was a struggle to get out of bed this morning and to stay awake sitting at my desk this afternoon.  

I’m pretty much battling a case of the Mondays.

It’s easy to feel defeated when we’re exhausted from a weekend worth of chaotic activities and running from one event to another.  It could be pretty tempting to call in sick (which I was half-tempted to do this morning when my alarm buzzed me awake) and just stay in bed for the day.  It would also be easy to start scratching things off our list of responsibilities, making one excuse after another that we don’t have time to focus on the tasks; that if we could only lighten our load, that we’d feel better and be able to be more successful.

But what does God say about days like today?

Through the Apostle Paul he tells us…
So let’s not allow ourselves to get fatigued doing good. At the right time we will harvest a good crop if we don’t give up, or quit. Right now, therefore, every time we get the chance, let us work for the benefit of all, starting with the people closest to us in the community of faith.  – Galatians 6:9 (MSG)

So no matter how easy it would be to throw our hands up in the air and admit defeat, we must remember that our hard work (even if it’s not spent as 20 ours in a church over two days) is fruitful and is done for a purpose that is much greater than our understanding.
