Coffee Connection

It’s a highlight of any day in my often-crazy schedule. Sitting down for a moment, hands wrapped around a hot mug of steaming java and my heart, mind and smile turned towards a dear friend. It’s refreshing just to think about it.

But life gets in the way, doesn’t it? Friends are busy, time fritters away and coffee gets cold. When I haven’t had these moments of connection my life is certainly drier (not to mention less caffeinated).

In Scripture we find an invitation that never expires, always fits into the schedule and never, ever leaves us dry and disconnected.

My heart has heard you say, “Come and talk with me.” And my heart responds, “Lord, I am coming.” Psalm 27:8 (NLT)

How about coffee with the Lord today? What about turning my heart, mind and smile to Him? At first the idea seems a bit silly. What will the other folks at Tim Horton’s think of me with coffee in hand smiling, chatting and listening… to an empty seat across the table?

But seriously, this is something I could do (and should do) regularly. Maybe not at the coffee shop on the corner, but here in my home will work. Out on the back deck in the spring, with the scent of the dirt waking up all around me, is also an attractive possibility.

God has invited me to come and talk WITH Him. Not just at Him. How is my heart responding? And how much richer will my relationship with the Father be when I’ve taken the time to have coffee with Him?

Let’s try it and find out.

Love this. My drink is generally milk, but there's nothing like that time with Him. Thanks for participating, Di!

Saw small clusters of people at the coffee shop today when I stopped in--everyone enjoying a quiet talk. I like your example--spending that intimate time with God.

Love the reference to coffee with the Lord. One day a friend was praying for me and referenced that idea. I'm thinkin' it's a sign... lol. Seriously, I love to sit quietly in the morning before my day begins, coffee in hand and thoughts and attentions directed to God. However, it's been a while. I think I need to rekindle our relationship. Thanks Di.
