Coffee has always been a significant part of my life. For me, it’s a chance to start my day and gather my thoughts – its fuel for my creative process. (Connor Franta)
In the morning, O Lord, hear my voice. In the morning, I lay my needs in front of you.” (Psalm 5:3)
As you start your day, I hope you will spend a few moments with Jesus of Nazareth.
Get your coffee, or other favorite hot beverage ready, and sit and relax in His presence.
Today, I want you to know that He hears your voice. He hears you, knows you, and loves hearing from you. When you speak, He listens intently, as you lay your needs before Him.
In this place of quiet, He hears you, even if you don’t know what to say. So, if you find yourself in that place today, then just sit, rest, and enjoy His presence with you.
As you rest, let His peace come over you to comfort any hurt, heal any pain, and strengthen any weakness.
Be refreshed by His presence, encouraged by His joy, and restored by His love, as you lean completely on Him for all of your understanding.
He goes with you, and before you, wherever you go. So, trust Him, and rely on Him, for everything you need, because He has been tried, tested, and remains true to fulfill His Father’s plans within you.
You can do all things [which He has called you to do] through Him who strengthens and empowers you [to fulfill His purpose—You are sufficient in Christ’s sufficiency; You are ready for anything and equal to anything through Him who infuses you with inner strength and confident peace.] (Philippians 4:13).
I commit these moments to you. Thank you for the sweet fragrance of your presence with me, for I am truly blessed to have you in my life. For you are showing me how I can live, and move, and find my being in you, all the days of my life. Amen.
