Painting The Office Red

We hope you all had a wonderful Labor Day weekend! We spent our time with 1000 young adults from the DFW area at the Watermark Community Church retreat called LAUNCH. It was so nice to get out of the city and spend time in the midst of other believers running toward the same goal. We agreed that the best part was fellowship- getting to know other young adults, sharing our stories, our struggles and living in authenticity amongst one another. We could write so much more about this weekend but today we wanted to focus on the week that follows a holiday weekend.

It's tough coming back to work after a weekend, especially when it's an extended holiday weekend. It's Tuesday but it feels like Monday and even though it's technically a short week, it always ends up feeling longer. We have a tendency to dwell on the negative aspects associated with coming "back to reality" but instead of focusing on what a bummer it is to not be laying out by the pool, let's challenge each other to "take every thought captive to obey Christ" (2 Corinthians 10:5). No matter what your day looks like, whether you’re sitting at a desk or busy with errands, "work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men" (Colossians 3:23).

One way we like to do this is to write ourselves notes and post them in places we look at often, like a mirror at home or on your office computer. Whenever you feel a negative thought coming on, call it out for the lie it is and replace that lie with truth from the word of God. We hope this encourages you and would love to hear how you're reminding yourself of truth in your own life!
