Happy Monday!

Verse of the Day:   Proverbs 6:10-11

A little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to rest — and poverty will come on you like a thief and scarcity like an armed man.           

Although we may be tempted to hit the snooze button on the alarm a few more times, particularly on a Monday, it’s time to rise and shine for another week of work. Laziness may sound good now but you’ll pay for it later. Hard work and diligence brings prosperity, laziness brings poverty. Take pleasure in the work God gives you and do your work diligently for the glory of the Lord. Work is a gift so be cheerful and thank God for your job, especially in these trying times when many are not able to work. Have a great day and remember to work hard, be kind and stay humble!

Morning Prayer

Psalm 5 3

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 5:3

In the morning, Lord, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait expectantly.

The most important thing you can do to start your day is to spend time with the Lord in prayer.  Thank Him for waking you up and giving you another day of life. Praise the Him for His goodness and His mercy that starts new every morning. Lay your requests and concerns at His feet. Invite Him into every part of your day. Be consistent and diligent with your prayers, always praying with the confidence that God hears you. Make time to pray every morning and ask God to give you the peace and guidance you need to go through your day.
