Pray First

Yesterday I wrote about the importance of giving thanks. I encouraged everyone to pray before leaving their home. Now, you do not have to spend hours praying as some people may have convinced you. All you need is just 5 minutes , it could be 2 minutes, but the important part is that you take time out of your day to connect with God.

Wednesday’s are considered my late nights, I work about 13 hours, so I do not see my son on Wednesday’s. By the time I get home, he is already fast asleep, and honestly it kills me that I’m missing out on quality time with him.

But per my habit, I prayed to the Lord first thing, and you know what? He made it so that I could be home. My coworker took my later activities, so that I could be home.

This may not seem like a lot, but I did not ask my coworker to do this for me. Because I put my faith in God and trust Him, He looks out for me.

So, try to make it a habit to spend time with Him. And I want you to write down small wins of the day to remind yourself that He is with you too.

I created this blog to reach out to others that have gone through some type of loss or problem in their life and are wanting someone to vent to. No matter what challenges you may face in life, The Lord will never give you anything that you cannot handle. It is up to you to get up each day and want to make a change.
