For me, my two “must haves” are coffee and prayer.
I’ll talk about prayer another day. Today, I need to keep things light. Today, I need to thank God for coffee.
Just to put things in perspective, yesterday I made three trips to the caffeine well (morning coffee at home, plus two trips to the coffee shop at work). I know it sounds excessive. I’m not saying it’s right or even making excuses. It’s no secret that I love my coffee. Not just any coffee. I like the good stuff. Some of you know that I gave up coffee for Lent a couple of years ago. And it nearly killed me!
I can do without a shower and some basic hygiene every now and then, but please don’t ask me to give up coffee.
I know what you’re thinking. This is supposed to be a working mom’s devotional. Very true.
But sometimes, I just don’t feel very “spiritual.” Sometimes, I can’t handle a sermon. I just need to keep it simple. Sometimes, I need to focus on thanking God for the little things that get me through each day.
How about you?
What are your “must haves” that get you through each day?
Have you thanked God for the little things this week?
“In everything give thanks, for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.” (1 Thessalonians 5:18)
Dear God, I thank you for creating coffee beans. Please help me to lean on you to get me through each day. Thank you that I don’t have to choose between prayer and coffee. And thank you for the weekend!
