How to Start a Monday

It’s Monday morning! Are you excited? ha, me either. BUT, I found a psalm sometime last year that jumped out to me as the clear cut way to start a Monday, and I have used it every week since.

Monday Blues, Scripture, Encouragment


Psalm 150

Praise the Lord.
Praise God in his sanctuary;
praise him in his mighty heavens.
Praise him for his acts of power;
praise him for his surpassing greatness.
Praise him with the sounding of the trumpet,
praise him with the harp and lyre,
praise him with timbrel and dancing,
praise him with the strings and pipe,
praise him with the clash of cymbals,
praise him with resounding cymbals.
Let everything that has breath praise the Lord.
Praise the Lord.


Things may not go perfectly today, or this week, or even this month. It might rain today or someone might bump you making you spill coffee all over yourself or you could break the heal off your shoe. Things will happen all week that we will have no control over. However, we have control over our responses. We can praise Him. We can see Him as the light at the end of the tunnel instead of making our weekend that. We can bring a smile and a cheerful spirit to those we are around. So, start your monday out right! Praise Him with a clash of cymbals and then you won’t even have to worry about someone not seeing you there and bumping into you. 😉
