Coming off of such a fabulous Easter weekend, I can't say I'm too excited to start off the week. Lent has come and gone, Holy Week is over, and Easter has quickly passed us by. Now what?
I am often guilty of having my faith revolve around holidays, but on this Monday following Easter, I am praying for a heart that refuses to let my faith die down and wait until the next big event. No matter what day it is, God is good and He is worthy of our love.
One of the beautiful things about God is that His power, His promises, and His presence are available to us year round. On any given day of the year, His Word is true. Each morning, His mercies are new. Every single day, He is worthy of our love.
So today, as I'm saddened that Easter is over, dreading the new work week, and feeling weighed down by a list of things to do and the uncertainty that looms; I'm trying to remember that God's love for me is constant and His promises are true. Despite seasons, events, and circumstances, He is worthy of our love.
"O God, You are my God; early will I seek You; my soul thirsts for you in a dry and thirsty land where there is no water."
"Therefore, my dear brothers, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain."
1 Corinthians 15:58
