Choose Jesus

Monday tried to get my goat.

This is what went down.

As I stumbled to the coffee pot at 5 am I heard the most awful noise coming from the hallway. It was Megatron – the English Bulldog. I’m not gonna go into details but just imagine the worst scenario involving a sick dog and his kennel.


It threw off my whole morning routine and apparently followed me all the way to my parking spot at work where I realized my computer was at home on the counter.


Still haven’t had the first sip of coffee.

Went home.

Got the computer.

Went back to work.

Did car duty.

Still no coffee.

I sat down to for a meeting and raised my coffee cup to take that first sip and would you believe my Apple Watch band snapped in half? Like what even?

Alright Monday – I see you.

I see you trying your best to alter my mood. I see you trying your best to make me lose my mind. I see you trying your best to make me behave like someone that I’m not.

I see you.

The thing is it’s not Monday – it’s the devil. And he would love nothing more for me to lose my mind. To lose my witness.

Every single day – every single moment – we get to choose. Who will we let win today?

I hope you choose Jesus.

I hope you choose grace.

I hope you choose laughing when you want to cry. And I hope you choose some Jesus-filled friends that “have been there” and “done that”.

“Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.” Hebrews 4:16
