A daily conversation with God is how I keep myself well mentally, physically, and emotionally. Many self-help books provide a variety of strategies to utilize, as you work to find the balance you need for overall wellness, I encourage you to find a plan which works for you.

I begin each day by sharing a cup of coffee with my husband and then daily devotions as I begin to talk with God. If you can push out the thoughts of others and the negative self-talk in your mind, you will begin the day with a mindset ready to face whatever it may bring.

Dear God,

I am in awe of Your power and wisdom. You are the master planner, and every moment of every life on earth is intricately woven with Your divine purpose. You are the Lord of all, and I humbly bow before You.

Today, I come to You with a humble request. Please remind me that when unexpected, troublesome, or even painful things enter my life, they are not accidents or coincidences. You have allowed them for my benefit, to strengthen and shape me into the person You have called me to be. Help me to see beyond the surface of difficulties and challenges, and grant me the ability to appreciate them and approach them with the proper attitude.

The intricate tapestry You are weaving in our lives, is not something to hide behind, it is to wrap ourselves in as we stand up. You have carefully orchestrated the events and circumstances to fit within Your amazing plan. I find solace in the knowledge that Your loving hand is guiding us.

May we continue to trust in You, Lord, and lean on Your understanding. Help us to surrender our worries and fears, knowing that You are working all things together for our good. Strengthen our faith, deepen our love for You, and enable us to walk faithfully in Your ways.

In the precious name of Jesus, I pray.


Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. — John 14:27

Heavenly Father, I humbly ask for Your peace, comfort and gentle hand to guide in my life, in all those in my family and all throughout the land who accept you as their Savior.

The stressors in my life can cause many sleepless nights, worries and concerns. Our days can be filled with so many negatives repeated and repeated. Fill us up with your peace, comfort and reassure us that You are there and in control.

Heavenly Father, You are slow to anger, gracious in mercy, and abounding in love. You are worthy of all praise and honor. May we remember, today may not show us the answers we seek to see and hear. It is in tomorrow’s promise we hold onto which leads us toward the light on our path to enlightenment of brighter days.

Calm the spirits and comfort each one today. May each one take time today to reflect in prayer and to know the change we desire lives within our hearts, echoes in our voices, shouts in our minds and shines through our actions each day.

Thank You for each day and all of the gifts you give to each one of us. Thank You for the protection you provide daily; we are unaware of those we do know.

In Jesus’ name, amen.
