“The coffee I had always been drinking was too bitter.
But just until now, I did not realize that.
For a long time, I had not really noticed that the coffee I’ve been drinking
tasted really good.
I was paying too much attention on how bad and bitter the day could be without really thanking and appreciating the good the coffee could bring.
The coffee that You have brought me.
But what makes the coffee really good is, I am not paying attention anymore to how bad
and bitter this day could be. More than the coffee, I am now able to notice that while drinking my cup, I am with You!
Thank you for this really nice conversation with You! The coffee is not bitter anymore.
Now the coffee is better!”
Getting the right mix of your cup of coffee in the morning is like trying to get the right start of your day, either you will hate or love how it taste. Are you after a perfect mix of it or a bitter taste?
What kind of mix do you pour on your cup everyday? This could be the concerns we fill our thoughts daily.These thoughts can easily take our attention away from the good things. We prepare and try to make the “perfect” taste. We tend to take the coffee for granted and then forget about its Maker.
Have you ever prayed over coffee? Have you thanked God for the little things ?
Have you had a real conversation with the Maker?
No matter how we feel towards the day, and no matter how we ignore the Maker, His presence, knowing He is with us is better than a perfectly mixed coffee.
Starting a day with a right attitude makes a big difference. We can decide if we want the coffee bitter… or make it better.
1 Peter 5:7 says, “Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you!” (New Living Translation)
Prayer is a real conversation with God. It is the truest conversation we have with God more than those times when we feel like God is talking to us through a great preacher’s sermon.Nor listening to the compelling words from famous pastors’ YouTube videos.
Our praying to God is the evidence of our utmost belief that our God is real, that He is alive. He is with us.
He is God, and that does not make Him unrelateable.And that He cares for us is His way of telling us that He can feel our human emotions. He can come down to our position and meet us where we are. It does not bother Him that He is an all-knowing God and He has to listen to people’s complains and worries.
Prayer is not superficial. It is a time and place where we see God as very personal. We come face to face and heart to heart with a genuinely caring Father. In prayer we experience God’s sincere love. He is telling us…
“I AM here, I AM waiting for you to talk with me.Tell me anything that disappoints you, frustrates you. I’ll listen…I won’t judge you. I would not condemn. In your anxiety do not sin, cast that burden to me, and I will give you peace.”
He is here. He just wants a simple and honest talk.
He looks forward to hearing our voices. He delights in spending time savoring the moment with His creations. He wants to hear how He made us react, respond to our surroundings, how He made us speak and express ourselves. We can be ourselves before God, in Him we are free. We can come and talk to Him.
