It was one of those days when I was weary from the countless responsibilities
and an endless list of tasks.
Coffee, I thought. Yes, I need an extra large cup of coffee to make it through this day.
So I stopped at my favorite coffee shop and asked for a large, yes extra large cup of coffee.
My thoughts flitted from this to that
until I the gal handed me the cup.
I smiled not realizing that my unspoken prayer was about to be answered
For some reason today I glanced down at the cup and read the writing on the side.
Dark, bold letters –
YOUR COFFEE. JUST RIGHT. EVERY TIME.
Suddenly it was like a light came on.
The only thing I can depend upon every time is my Lord. Every time.
Walking outside into the cold air my step picked up.
Sure there are some people that are dependable. What would we ever do without them?
Gifts of God to be sure.
But every time? Those simple words drew my focus upward to the One Who never let me down.
In a world of increased stress and the possibility for discouragement on every side.
He never fails.
He has promised His Presence and Protection and Peace
for all who look to Him. For me.
YOUR JESUS. JUST RIGHT. EVERY TIME.
As I mentally hugged that truth to my weary heart I felt fresh courage and strength.
And right there I bowed my head and asked Him again to be that for me. Today.
Anything can become an instrument of encouragement and comfort.
it is a cup of coffee.
How about you?
Lord, open our eyes to see you wherever we are today.
And may we be strengthened to serve you this moment.
My prayers are with you today, my friend.
