Welcome to another Monday. When you hop out of your car and begin another tiring work week, perhaps dreading another 5 days at a job you don’t really like or do not feel appreciated at, listen to the song below. I pray that the words bring strength for your week ahead.
“Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might.” Ephesians 6:10 ESV
One of the reasons the we dread the work week is because we enter the office feeling alone or out numbered. The same is true for the stay at home mom or the school teacher. When we feel like the tasks at hand are overwhelming that is tiring, but when we feel like no one wants to help or would even consider helping us, that is just dreadful. Unfortunately, you or someone you know may know this environment all too well.
So, let me reintroduce you to Beckah Shae and her song, ‘Me and My God.’ First, this song’s beat is fun and energetic. Turn up the bass and the volume in your car and try not to smile a bit during your lunch break. However, a good song is more than just solid music. Beckah’s song has a very simple but relevant set of lyrics depicting the struggle you and I face each day we walk as Christians. (Lyrics Link)
The Enemy is seeking to take us out each and everyday, but you and I are protected by our relationship to Christ. Not only does this song remind us that we are battle ready when we are living with Christ, but we are ready to WIN! Jesus isn’t just standing by watching us get attacked, he’s right there with us and prepared to hit fear and doubt with a knockout blow.
This Monday, as weary as you feel, try to remember that Jesus is with you, walking through the day with you. Don’t let anything think it has the right to take your thunder! – Timothy
‘Me and My God’ is the eighth track on Beckah Shae’s 2014 album Champion.
