Coffee and Jesus--Two constants

We have gone through a really odd season for the last six months. A place I think a lot of people are camping in. Economy woes and unemployment. Post deployment unemployment has been our cross and it hasn't been TOO bad until recently when the savings are dried up, book money is on hold or gone, stuff that many of us are having to face.

We aren't promised no trials. As a matter of fact, despite the fact that Jesus WILL overcome for us, we are pretty much guaranteed that we will face situations where we will have to throw ourselves on God's mercy and watch his faithfulness unfold.
Two things God has graciously allowed me to keep during this time: Coffee and His Word. Not sure I could live without either of them.
I've grown absolutely dependent on mornings alone on the deck with Jesus, coffee and my word count for the day.

My song for the day is "The Power of the Cross" by Natalie Grant and my Bible reading Psalm 27.
Give it a shot. Find a quiet place and let God walk you through the waves.

In His love
