Sunday is my day to "over come" and get things done and prepare for the new week.
I wanted to “get on top of things” so I invented a special day for Sunday: Over Comers Day.
I’m going to share with you how you can get more from the “days of your life” and I’m not talking about watching soap operas (if that show is even on any more). Let me ask you something. If you had a dedicated time, or day, to work on a certain project do you think that you would eventually get it “done” or at least see results? I think you would. Here’s what I’ve started to do in my life. I have assigned “meaning” to all seven days of the week. Today I will tell you about Sunday.
You may be using your Sunday as “Funday” because you may be off from work, with the family, or whatever; plus it rhymes with Sunday so that’s cool in itself. For me, I’m calling it “Overcomers Day”. I have assigned it as a time for me to be an “overcomer” which is now a day to take care of loose ends, unfinished projects, and preparing for the new week. In the Christian faith, we know that Christ overcame death and the grave on Sunday so Overcomers Day has special meaning to me as well. I made a commitment to overcome the usual weekly obstacles that have piled up during the week and then prepare for the new week.
For instance, on Overcomers Day I open mail that may be a dreaded bill or something that I just didn’t want to deal with but know that I should. I check the top most email in my email box, scroll down to an email subject about a mile down the page, hold down the shift button so I select all, then slowly scroll up “unchecking” those I want to keep and then I hit delete. Voila! That’s a good feeling! At least part of my email box is cleared. I also listen to, make note of, and delete unwanted phone messages. As I do all of the above, I take note of any action needed and jot it down in my weekly planner for the next week.
I know that there is more that I can do on Overcomers Day but this is a great start in getting rid of the old and get ready for the new!
Now if you’ll excuse me, I have some “overcoming” to do!
Make it a great day!
