I love coffee. Perhaps a little too much. Right now I’m trying to limit myself to one cup a day. Well, okay, two max. But that’s it. My husband got me into drinking the lovely hot drink black a few years back. He said that you couldn’t really taste the coffee if you put other stuff in it. It took me a while to wean myself off the milk (never cream or half and half) and sweetener. I didn’t really make the change because of the taste though. I really did it to make life simpler. And it is. At least I think so. Did I mention that I love coffee?
I won’t even start on my new favorite roast from Thailand. I think it’s going to replace my all-time favorite Bolivian blend.
Well anyway, I was thinking about it today. Every morning (except Sunday) we make coffee. No matter what. Maybe not every morning, but it’s been part of our morning routine for a long time.
I have been working hard in the last couple of weeks to get up early to read the Bible, read a section from a discipleship book, and pray. I have a huge desire to spend time with God, but I’ll admit it. It’s tough with limited amounts of sleep. I’ve been moving my time with God frequently, because as soon as I get a routine down, my life situation seems to change. Right now I’m making my God time first thing in the morning. My goal is to make my God time as routine as my one cup of coffee.
Are you regularly spending time with God? It can be a struggle to start the routine but oh so worth it.
