5 Prayer Points to Start Your Day

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.” – Philippians 4:6

The best way to start your day is by talking to God. Before you even leave your house for the day, there are certain things you need to ask God for to equip you for what’s to come.

Although we can’t predict the future, we can ask God to prepare us for whatever life will throw at us that day. After all, God knows even the smallest details of our lives before they even happen!

  1. Pray for safety.

Starting my day with a prayer for safety gives me comfort and peace going into my day. I pray not only for the safety of myself but for the safety of my family and friends. It’s so comforting knowing that God sends his guardian angels down to protect us wherever we go!

  1. Pray for the strength to turn away from sin.

Life will throw many sinful things at you throughout your day. You may not even realize that you’ve stumbled into sin! Things like gossiping, negative thoughts, jealousy, etc. are easy to fall into without even knowing it. When we pray for resistance to temptation, God gives us a conscious mind to turn away from the things that are displeasing to him.

  1. Pray for others to see God through you.

One of our missions on this earth is to witness to other people. If we’re not radiating the love of Christ to the world around us, then we’re not doing our job as followers of Christ! Pray for opportunity between you and your friends, family, classmates, or whoever else God is using you to reach. We should be excited to talk to others about the things God is doing for us that he, too, can do for them!

  1. Pray for energy.

I think you can all agree with me on this one… Days can oftentimes be long and exhausting! We could all use some extra motivation and strength to get through our day. Ask God for energy and persistence for when you’re feeling that early morning wake up call. It doesn’t hurt to get a little extra help from the man upstairs!

  1. Pray for resilience.

What exactly is resilience? It’s the ability to recover readily from adversity. Not every day is filled with hardships and difficulties, but when that day comes that is filled with adversity, God can equip us to get through it all! God is with us through the hills and the valleys, whenever they may happen. When we pray for resilience, God will give us the mindset of perseverance, and the ability to approach these situations confidently and courageously. When we change to a mindset of resilience, we turn these difficulties into mountains we allow God to move!

If you often forget to pray to start your day, challenge yourself to spend 5 minutes in prayer before you even get out of bed in the morning! Set your alarm 5 minutes earlier and see how this small change can positively impact your day in so many ways. God loves the time we spend in communication with him, and it’ll make you feel so much closer to him. What’s a better way to start your day than that?

There are a lot of “plus sides” to the internet. Funny memes and Instagram, just to name a few. There are also a lot of down sides, one of the biggest being that it can be a danger to your privacy. Breaches in your online security can have really bad consequences, from having your passwords stolen and your social media accounts hacked to someone getting your credit card information and stealing your identity. The best way to prevent a breach in your online security and privacy is to never do any of the following:

  1. Giving unnecessary info: When you are filling out a profile online, whether it is a clothing website or a social media profile, be wary about what information you give them. A lot of the time, the information they are asking for isn’t really needed (things like your mother’s maiden name and your phone number, to name a few). Only fill out the boxes that are required, and I even suggest making up a fake birthday so it is not as easy for people to steal your identity.
  2. Sharing your location settings: When apps like Facebook or sites like Google ask if they can use your location, say no. Especially Facebook because every post you make tells your location, which makes it easy for people to track you. People can be tracking you on sites where you wouldn’t even expect it! Be careful when letting sites use your location data.
  3. Using the same password for everything: I used to be bad at this! It is so convenient to use the same password, or a variation of it, for everything because you never forget it. But, once a hacker has that password, they can go to town. Use a different password for everything to make sure that a hacker can’t take over your accounts! Keep your passwords in a small notebook so that you can keep track of them.

I want you to stay safe on the internet, so I hope these warnings help!

XOXO, Chels

Our world is a beautiful, wonderful place that is meant to be traveled and explored. That being said, it is also a dangerous place to travel for a woman traveling solo. When I travel I take a parent with me as often as possible, but I know a few of my friends that have traveled solo or with another girl friend. I’m also starting to travel a lot more on my own. Traveling solo can mean a ton of freedom because the only person you have to worry about is yourself! But, there are a few things girls need to know before they go off and travel by themselves, just for safety reasons. Here are a few of the super-important ones.

  1. Fill your family in: Before you leave, give your family back home your itinerary. Let them know what your travel schedule is, where you will be staying, and other such info in case they need to get in touch with you or if something goes wrong.fullsizerender-70
  2. Take photos of important docs: Keep photos of your passport, ids, ticket numbers, and reservations with you or in the cloud online so you always have access to them in a crunch.
  3. Pack light: This is so that criminals are less likely to rob you. If you are towing a large suitcase with a Coach purse on your arm, you are more likely to draw a robber’s attention. Small bags are also easier to get around with.
  4. Don’t keep your money in one place: Keep some cash and a credit card on you, and then keep another set in your bag, and then another at the place you are staying just to be safe.
  5. Don’t wear both headphones: Stay alert by only wearing one headphone. If you have both in you are less likely to hear if anything sketchy is going on around you.
  6. Bring a selfie stick: Solo travel means no one is there to take your picture on a moment’s notice. That is the beauty of selfie sticks! Plus, it means you don’t have to hand your camera to a total stranger to take a pic of you.

And, above all, have fun! Just have a safe time while doing it. 🙂

XOXO, Chels

  • Say yes to sunscreen: Even if you are going to be out for a short time, always put on sunscreen before you go out. This protects your skin from both sun and windburn. Also, don’t forget Chapstick, your lips can get sun and wind burn too.
  • Be prepared: Check the weather report before you go outside to workout. If the weather is super cold, plan to only stay out for a short time. Stick to slow-moving activities that won’t cause the wind to hit your face and give you windburn.

Calling all shopaholics! Do you plan on going out and braving the crowds this Black Friday? If you are, then you really need to read these important tips! They will help you get the best deals possible, and they will give you some tips on how to stay safe when braving the masses!

  1. Do your research and browse the deals before you go. If you are looking for something specific, like a certain electronic item, then you need to research which stores are selling the item and which one offers the best price. You also need to check out what time the stores that you want to hit are open. Some stores open early on black Friday, some stores don’t open until late at night, the times can be all over the place! The best thing to do to stay organized is to keep a notebook or a sheet of paper with you that has each store you want to go to, the time they open, and what items you want to look for when you get there and their price. When you have a ton of people rushing around you, the best thing to be is organized and to have a game plan.
  2. TAKE AN ADULT WITH YOU. Ladies, I cannot stress this enough, take an adult with you! On black Friday, you will encounter countless crazy, frantic people trying to snatch and grab up items. You do not want to get in a compromising position or in a dangerous situation without having an adult to help you. Also, adults can help you find the items you need and can advise you on the best deals.

Stay safe this Black Friday, ladies! Good luck!

XOXO, Chels
