COFFEE WITH GOD
Taste and see that the LORD is good; blessed
is the one who takes refuge in him.
I love to sip a cup of coffee while I read The Upper Room
and spend time in quiet prayer. As I reflect on this daily ritual,
I realize that since I’ve been having “coffee breaks” with God,
my devotional time has become more special to me. I am
truly coming to know God in a more intimate way; and as I
of my favorite caffeinated beverage. I am experiencing the
goodness of the Lord through my quiet times; and I am learning, day by day, how awesome God is. Daily rituals can help
us enjoy and look forward to quality time spent with God in
prayer and devotion each day. In this way we can truly “taste
and see that the Lord is good.”
Prayer: Dear Lord, thank you for helping us to know your
goodness and love. We pray as Jesus taught us, saying, “Our
Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy
kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as
we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but
deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power,
and the glory, for ever. Amen” (Matt. 6: 9-13, kjv).
