It's Monday- You've Got This

"I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33, NLT)

It’s Monday.

Autism is going to wake up and look for someone to slap in the face today.

Cerebral palsy is going to wreck havoc physically, mentally, and emotionally in someone’s life today.

Chromosomal disorders will continue to frustrate and challenge someone today.

Seizures are going to show up suddenly and violently disrupting someone’s day.

Yep, it’s Monday.

“He is who in you is greater than he who is in the world.” (1 John 4:4)

A hurricane named “Special Needs” will howl and rage across the land again today.

The hurricane will rip the roofs off of hearts, tear down marriages, and pull up daily lives by their roots. In some areas it will simply be an F1 storm with minimal or light damage. But others will experience the full fury, wrath and devastation of an F4 storm.

Seizures, meltdowns, tantrums, bills, doctors, therapies, IEPs, medications, and explanations.

Another day when someone will block the last handicap parking spot.
Another bill and you have no idea where the money will come from to pay it.
Another baffling letter from an insurance company that you add to the file.
Another teacher will request a meeting.
Another doctor will close the door and purse his lips.

“He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.” (1 John 4:4)

It’s Monday all day.

An entire bevy of giants and trolls named Fear, Anxiety, Despair, Discouragement, Worry, Exhaustion, Weariness, and Stress are all looking for victims today.

Another mom will scream in her empty car with the windows rolled up.
Another dad will invent an excuse to be home late.
Another parent will wonder how much more she can take.
And yet another parent will struggle to get out of bed.

Take a deep breath.
Clinch your fists.
Crack your knuckles.
Squint your eyes.
Smack your lips.

“He who in you is greater than he who is in the world.” (1 John 4:4)

Yea, you got this.

“Bring it on.”

“Cause He who is in me, is greater than anything that is in my world.”

“I got this.”

Pray: "Thank you God that I do not have to face my world alone today. Thank you that you are bigger and greater than anything I will face today."
