Struggling today? It is Monday, so that means we’re back to work or school. The enjoyment and relaxation of the weekend is gone, so you may be feeling a little negative or down today. You’re not alone. These are shared feelings by many, and there is advice in Scripture that can help us today.
Colossians 3:2 says, “Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.”
As you’re remembering it is Monday, counterbalance the weight of the negative thoughts with the joy of promises found in Scripture.
- Your to-do list is long, but the Lord is always with you (Hebrews 13:5).
- You have to untangle a tricky problem with a client at work, but the Lord is your helper (Psalm 121).
- You’re anxious about that doctor’s appointment this week, but the Lord can give you peace (Philippians 4:7).
Yes, it is Monday, but equalizing our thoughts may help the day go a little better.
Please share this idea and post.

Thank you. The two passages coming to mind immediately are Philippians 4:6-7 and 1 Peter 5:7. Are there any Scriptures you’ve found helpful in difficult times?
