Jeremiah 6:16 
This is what the Lord says: 
“Stand by the roadways and look. 
Ask about the ancient paths, 
‘Which is the way to what is good?’ 
Then take it 
and find rest for yourselves.” 
But they protested, “We won’t!” (CSB)

GOD’s Message yet again:
“Go stand at the crossroads and look around.
Ask for directions to the old road,
The tried-and-true road. Then take it.
Discover the right route for your souls.
But they said, ‘Nothing doing.
We aren’t going that way.’
(The Message)

An actor of note was greeted by the doorman upon leaving his apartment building. The doorman said, “Have a good day!” The actor turned toward him with a scowl and said, “I have other plans.”

It’s Monday. There seem to be more people with Other Plans on Mondays than on any other day of the week. We can let crankypants people derail us, or we can turn to God and ask him for directions. Trust me, the latter way is the better way. Companions on the Jesus Journey are less irritable and more hopeful. How can we stay angry when we are headed toward a destination of no more tears? 

Monday is a good day to review whose we are and what path he has laid out for us. It is a good day to start a fresh workweek with a freshened walk with God. Ponder the possibilities when he leads the way. Consider the opportunities he has placed before us. Trust him to supply what we need when it is needed. This is his pattern and promise.

Of course, our adversary may choose to remind us of how some people simply bug the snot out of us. He may offer a shortcut for our steps that take us where we don’t really want to go, but that does seem easier. 

Now is a good time to remind ourselves that taking the Easy Way isn’t the Easy Way. Character is never strengthened by slapping an Easy button. 

What road are you on today? Is it time to find God’s better path? It’s only hidden from those who choose not to look for it. God’s version of Hide and Seek works like this: Those who seek, find. 

I will ask, “Which is the way to what is good?” Then I will take it and find effectiveness and rest. 

Our Father, show me the way I should go, for to you I lift up my soul. Amen.
