Thank You for the encouragement You have woven into our lives.
Father, thank you for the blessings in our lives. For Christ, prayer, and Your sovereign hand. For the people You have purposely placed in our lives to encourage us. Thank you for the talents we have and the opportunities you have laid out before us. For our families and communities. When we don’t have the words to pray, we are thankful we can simply look to You, throw our arms up, and pour our hearts out.
Bless and heal the parts of our hearts that harbor anything that keeps us from walking fully in your peace. Give us the obedience to grow out of habits that contribute to our stress and steal our peace. Remind us of who we are, in You.
In Jesus’ Name,
“Megs” writes about everyday life within the love of Christ. She stepped out of her comfort zone, and her Marketing career, to obey God’s call to stay home and be “Mom” in 2011. From that step of obedience her blog, Sunny&80, was born, a way to retain the funny everyday moments of motherhood. Meg is also a freelance writer and author of “Friends with Everyone.” She loves leading her Monday morning Bible study, being a dance mom, distance running and photography. Meg resides in Northern Ohio with her husband, two daughters, and Golden-Doodle … all avid Cleveland Browns fans.
