I love stirring out of bed in the morning thanking God for waking me yet another day, washing my face, making the bed, and heading to the kitchen to get a bit of breakfast ready, and stir that first cup of coffee with a little bit of stevia and some fat-free whip cream or a little bit of gingerbread creamer this time of the year.
I take that cup of coffee, sit down on the sofa, and delve into some kind of Bible study. I keep saying I am going to call someone over for coffee with me some morning, but as I pause and think about it, I do have a guest every morning – my Lord. Not only is He my guest, but He is my date. I love that – morning dates with my Lord having a cup of coffee together. My cup overflows with His blessings.
Right now I am reading through the Word chronologically with Wendy Pope and a group of ladies using the One Year Chronological Bible, NLT and, of course, it is the Large Print Edition. In a couple of weeks I am starting a study with Proverbs 31 Online Bible Studies called Keep It Shut by Karen Ehman.
Stir my heart Lord as I stir my coffee each morning.
