I can still remember the moment in February 2016 when I had an idea. Back when I was diagnosed with cancer, the phone call came on a Monday. I knew how quickly a week could change, but God’s promises remain the same. So I decided to write a weekly devotional every Monday about an aspect of God’s character that would be true, no matter what the week might bring.
At first it was a way to provide structure and accountability for my writing life. If I told people I was going to post every Monday, I had to stick with it. And then a handful of people started reading every week, including my grandmother, who was in assisted living in another state. I made a commitment to myself to keep writing the devotionals for her, knowing she looked forward to the email she got from me each Monday morning.
By the time my grandma went to be with the Lord in August 2020, there were more of you reading these Monday devotionals, and it’s been an honor to be welcomed into your inbox or your social media feed each week. I’ve wrestled with this decision for years. But after almost 8 years of “No Matter What Monday,” I think it’s time to bring this season to an end.
I’m still writing, but I’m taking some time to consider what that looks like for me in this new season. I’d be honored if you stay subscribed here so I can keep you posted as new projects come along. There is an archive of Monday devotionals on my website – you can find those by clicking here. Also, if you haven’t downloaded my free ebook of 21 devotionals (or if it’s been awhile!), you can find it on my website here.
Thank you again for reading my words each Monday. It has been a blessing to me to write them for you, and I hope the Lord has been glorified by each one.Share
