Why do people feel better on Friday than the other weekdays?
- They anticipate tomorrow’s rest
- They are not worried about tomorrow’s tasks.
- They can do what they want and not what their boss tells them to do.
Worry is what keeps us from making every day feel like Friday!
Why not make your mind think it is Friday? We can tell our minds that there is nothing to worry about. We can pretend tomorrow is the first day of our vacation or our weekend. After all, we never know what tomorrow may bring. Why worry about impending threats or doom when we can’t be positive it will happen? Even if it will, worrying today won’t make it any better.
Expectancy – Six Flags or School?
If a mom wakes them up saying, “It’s time to go to Six Flags,” they will jump out of get with eager anticipation of a great day, expecting to have a lot of fun.
Why not tell ourselves today is going to be a great day no matter what we are expecting to do?
How are you? vs. What day is it?
Have you ever asked somebody at work how they are doing and their response is, “It’s Monday” (with a frown) or “It’s Friday” (joyfully). I say to myself, “I know what day it is. That is not what I asked.” Both days begin the same. We wake up, get ready for work, drive to work. It’s the same routine, pretty much the same responsibilities, so why is Monday a bad day and Friday a good day? Because we thinking we know what tomorrow may bring and we anticipate a long, hard week. Only God knows what tomorrow will be like.
Watch this video and see the enthusiasm spread. (Warning: Some slightly strong language – taking God’s name in vain.) My point is for you to see the enthusiasm and anticipation of a great time.
We as God’s people should have the greatest time of all, knowing that God is always with us giving us peace and joy.
