Don’t worry about anything, but in everything, through prayer and petition with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. Philippians 4:6

Perfect. Just Perfect.

I have never found a more fitting prayer then the one I found the other day.

It couldn’t be more perfect for me. Often times, I’m kind of at a loss as to what to pray for. Sometimes I feel too selfish with my prayers. Other times I feel like I’ve already prayed enough for those things. I try to explain to God what I really feel, but I always fall short, I think.

But, now I have found the most perfect prayer. It applies to everything. It works in all situations. It let’s God know exactly what’s on my heart and it does it in a way that even makes sense to me.

I’m sure you expecting this grand prayer by now, aren’t you? Well, I’m not a grand person, but here it is:

Lord, do what you want with my life, but please give me the courage to face it.

That’s it.

That’s all I really want too. I want God to use me to glorify Him. I don’t want to have to make choices and decisions on a daily basis. I want to enjoy life and all that He has blessed me with and so if I can just give it to Him and then let Him be my strength and my courage, well, it looks like 2015 might be shaping up to be a fantastic year.

So as I’m sure that I will have specific requests come up throughout this year, I also just want to ask you that when you say your prayers that you say this one for me. Anytime. Any place. It’s a keeper.

Grateful

Working from home isn’t always easy. There are noises and distractions. There are interruptions. It isn’t easy. It isn’t for everyone. But it works for this family. Some days I don’t get much done. Some days I finish right where I started, but then there are days like this.

Days when I’m able to enjoy my second cup of coffee, catch up on emails, work out some ideas for the blog, clean the house, and even fix breakfast.

These two can be tough and this job can be demanding, but it’s moments like this, when everything is so peaceful and in tune to one another that makes everything I do worth it.

It can be so hard to remain grateful for what you have. I struggle daily. But it’s nice to be reminded just how wonderful life really is.

Today, my prayer is that I am always reminded of how perfect life is and that I am always able to keep a grateful heart no matter what season of life I am in. No matter what kind of storm is outside. I am incredibly blessed and I should be sure to give thanks always.
