Today my plans got derailed a bit due to an equipment issue that knocked us off the air for about 15 minutes. I picked this devotional for Monday Motivation because it’s a good reminder of this question: how do you respond then your plans don’t work out? Or get postponed?
Today we kicked off the show with Danny Gokey’s song, ‘New Day,’ which says, “this is a new day, everything’s bursting with hope…” and I started thinking, do we really feel that way? Sometimes, don’t we have to intentionally CHOOSE hope? That’s the topic of today’s Monday Motivation from author Lisa Samra. You can find the link to Our Daily Bread by clicking here.

Today I’m sharing a devotional reminding us that our God specializes in making beauty from ashes, or as Elevation Worship sings, graves into gardens. Here’s a short passage from James Banks in Our Daily Bread, which takes us from Peter Pan to Ruth. Read ‘Hard Ground and Tender Mercy’ by clicking here.

Today’s Monday Motivation comes from author Bill Crowder and reminds us of the power of music. It can change the direction of our attitude and our day. It can give us great hope when we’re feeling down. It also started a revolution in Estonia!
Today’s Monday Motivation comes from the book “3-Minute Devotions”…
On your feet now-applaud GOD! Bring a gift of laughter, sing yourselves into his presence. Psalm 100:1-2 MSG
As children of the Creator Himself, we were made to laugh—to experience great joy. Our design didn’t include for us to carry the stress, worry, and heaviness every day. Go ahead! Ask God to give you a really good laugh today. Prayer: Lord, help me to rediscover laughter. Help me to take every opportunity You bring to see the joy in life and the comedy that it brings to my world every day. Amen.
#2 Christian Living
You’re no longer wandering exiles. This kingdom of faith is now your home country. You’re no longer strangers or outsiders. You belong here, with as much right to the name Christian as anyone. Ephesians 2:19 MSG
What seems impossible on our own becomes a pleasure when we have help. We are never alone in our Christian journey. We are given one another, and we are even in touch with God’s Holy Spirit. Prayer: O Lord, show me how You want me to be. Open my eyes, my heart, my spirit. Amen.
