Tell Me Something Good Monday – It’s a Beautiful Day!

“We do not dare to classify or compare ourselves with some who commend themselves. When they measure themselves by themselves and compare themselves with themselves, they are not wise.”
‭‭2 Corinthians‬ ‭10:12‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Happy Monday!  This morning I heard Jamie Grace’s song Beautiful Day and I’ve been smiling and dancing all around.  That’s something good!  Yesterday, we went back to worshipping in our church.  We also went back to our normal routine of breakfast and Sunday School.  That felt good.  It was an opportunity for people to share their stories and feelings.  Sometimes it’s nice to be able to talk with trusted friends and family who understand.  That’s good news.  This morning I feel the sun shining on me and just want to sing.

Are you in a leadership position at work, church or maybe in a civic organization?  What kind of leader are you?  I’ve been working on some research involving three kings:  Saul, David and Absalom.  This morning Saul is on my mind.  First Samuel tells us that Saul was the tallest and most handsome man in his area.  Yet, he had insecurities.  When anointed to be King, at one point he hid.  King Saul was a people pleaser.  In fact, it was more important for him to keep the troops happy, than to follow God’s instructions.  In his attempts to stay in control he caused his troops to fight hungry, which led to more sin.  Then, he feared a young man, David, would take his crown.  David did take the crown, but what Saul didn’t understand was David wasn’t after the crown.  He just wanted to sing and worship God.  King Saul didn’t start out wicked and evil, but that is where he was at the end of his life.

Have you ever worried about losing your position to someone else?  Have you made decisions to keep the crowd happy? The answer is seeking God’s will first.  If you seek God’s will, he will place you exactly where you need to be at the perfect time.  He will raise you up to your potential.  He wants you to succeed.

I hope you have a wonderful day and seek God first in all you do.  God bless you!
