Monday Morning Courage

What do you do when Monday morning hits and the pile of to-do’s is beyond anything humanly possible?

Ever felt that way?

I know I have. There are weeks my teams and I are looking around thinking….we need supernatural help and F A S T.

….we need supernatural help and F A S T.

Here are my three top tips for Monday Morning Courage. Use this anytime during the week….it applies across the board.

Set the timer for 15 minutes

  • Set the timer on your phone for 15 minutes and do nothing but close your eyes and thank God for everything you can think of, including public toilets and running water. No joke, I mean it. Get yourself in a position of thankfulness. I like to cover my head and go into a place of darkness where I’m not distracted in any way. I sit and just breathe….& then start to thank God. For everything I can think of.

 

Set the timer for 10 minutes

  • AFTER the 15 minutes, set the timer again for 10 minutes, and praise God. Praise is different than thankfulness, it has to do with identifying God, as well….God.

Courtyards and gates are points of entrance. Use the simple keys of thanksgiving and praise to enter freely through what Jesus alone has already done for us – he made the keys work…

  • There is a Bible verse that says we enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise. This exercise before a day of potential overwhelm is a no fail reminder that God is still God, and with him, no thing is impossible.

Set the timer for 5 minutes and wait….

  • AFTER the 10 minutes, set your timer for 5 minutes (you will want more time:) and be silent before God. Ask him one, maybe two questions, and then wait. Wait and write down what he says.

 

This is one of the most basic things we can do to establish our routine with God, and it seems to get away from us. It takes 3o minutes. If you need to shorten it for starters, shorten it to 5 – 5 – 5, and see how it goes!

…when all hell is breaking loose and you have to hide in the bathroom to pray at work, break it into 5 minute increments…5-5-5.

Creative, you have a remarkable year ahead. Let’s forge it with courage!
