Working Hard.... or Hardly Working

I just can't get moving girls. It's Monday morning, I have a full 9 items on my to-do list here at the office, and it's almost 11:00. I've finished ONE thing. I need to get moving! And you know what's so perfect? The little bundle of hope in my inbox this morning. I am a subscriber to Oak Hills Devotionals. Oak Hills is the church where Max Lucado speaks, he is a fabulous pastor and writer. I get a little snippet of truth every morning, and this is what I was blessed with today:

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
Philippians 4:13 (NKJV)

Stand and consider:
The Hubble Space Telescope sends back infrared images of faint galaxies that are perhaps twelve billion light-years away (twelve billion times six trillion miles).
Astronomers venture a feeble estimate that the number of stars in the universe equals the number of grains of sand on all the beaches of the world.
The star Betelgeuse has a diameter of 100 million miles, which is larger than the earth’s orbit around the sun.
Why the immensity? Why such vast, unmeasured, unexplored, “unused” space? So that you and I, freshly stunned, could be stirred by this resolve: “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”

The Christ of the galaxies is the Christ of your Mondays.
How amazing is that? The Christ of the galaxies is the Christ of my Mondays! Surely I can get motivated and get moving! I struggle with laziness, I always have. I have never been the kind of girl to just "conquer" a project unless I'm in the right mood for it. Unfortunately the "conquer-all" moods come very few and far between. It is a daily struggle. It's amazing how God knows exactly what my daily devotional should be each morning. He knew what I needed to hear today!
I just thought I'd share with you girls this morning, just in case any of you have a bad case of the Mondays!
