“Oh no, it’s MONDAY.”
The Monday blues seem to be a thing a lot of people experience, but God made every day of the week and that first day was pretty important!
Well now ‘Miracle Mondays’ on the Eric Metaxas Show is just what you need to banish the Monday blues.
What is it about Mondays that seems to jar us?
Maybe it’s the perception that our “fun” or “free” time has ended and a whole slew of hard tasks are ahead of us.
But what if we could gain a new perspective and add a great habit that would make us actually look forward to Mondays?
Is it even possible? Yes!
What is this habit I’m talking about?
Well, have you ever heard of The Eric Metaxas Radio Show?
Also known as “the show about everything,” Metaxas’ radio program “offers compelling perspective on American culture, political life, and stories making news around the corner and across the globe.”
Eric Metaxas’ biggest rise to fame is as an author.
His book series “Everything You Always Wanted to Know About God (But Were Afraid to Ask)” has been praised by folks of all backgrounds – from Dick Cavett to Tim Keller to Ann B. Davis (Alice from The Brady Bunch show) who said, “I am absolutely smitten with this book!”
Metaxas is a critically acclaimed speaker as well. He has even debated at the world’s oldest debating society, the Oxford Union.
According to his personal site: “His no-holds-barred introductions of such figures as U. S. Senator Joseph Lieberman, former Attorney General John Ashcroft, and Rick Warren have made him much sought after as an emcee and moderator. Metaxas has moderated debates featuring President Obama’s former pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright; Bishop John Spong; Princeton’s Peter Singer; Dinesh D’Souza, and the New Testament scholar Bart Ehrman.”
And he brings all of his personality and unique thoughts together on The Eric Metaxas Radio Show.
Using his God-given wit as well as his spiritually-upright understanding, Metaxas believes that the God of all knowledge not only wants to be known by us, but wants us to know Him. That is to say, we shouldn’t fear knowledge, curiosity, discussion, and learning.
When we stand on the Truth, we can be confident in our ability to hear all sides of a story and allow the Spirit to help us navigate this life. Navigation makes progress.
Choosing to avoid “American culture, political life, and stories making news around the corner and across the globe,” as is his show’s schema, may be one way to protect ourselves from worldly ideas – but in no way does it equip us to understand the world we should be serving.
There are several unique parts to the show that appear periodically for listeners.
‘Miracle Mondays’ is a steadfast favorite for many and features guests who share stories of the miraculous things God has done and is continuing to do.
Metaxas likes to use this time to show the world the Almighty power of our very real, here-and-now God.
Though not every Monday, the best way to follow what Metaxas has planned, and especially when he plans Miracle Mondays, is via podcast. His show is available for free on most podcast apps and subscriptions.
You can also use this list to find a station that broadcasts his show near you.
Whether you come to this well of wisdom for a revival of your Monday attitude or explore Metaxas’ other episodes all throughout the week, you’re sure to be blessed and given a whole lot to think about — with a God-forward view.
