Coffee with Jesus


I was reading through Facebook this morning and I read a comment on my friend’s page.  It said, “If you were having coffee with Jesus this morning, what would he say to you?” What a great prompt.

God has patiently been in back of my mind today.  It seems I have done my best to put Him on the back burner today.  I know what He say and I don’t want to hear it. He would be staying , Be still and know that I am God. 

Have you ever had that feeling like you are living out of a suitcase?  That restlessness, that leaves your legs wanting to run at night?  Well, that what I have been encountering these last few weeks.  I am not sure why I am feeling this way, I just am.

Yesterday’s church message was spoken right to me.  Your heart will remain restless until you rest in Him.  I love God with all my heart but for some reason, I have had a hard time being still enough so that He can speak to me.  

I know that not all my blogs can be positive.  My husband says don’t write unless it’s a positive message.  I am one of those people who sees things as the glass being half empty instead of half full.  I let my feelings get the best of me and take me down.  I don’t like it, but that is how I am hard wired.  

But I think it is important for people to see that the live of a christian is not always “hunky dory”.  We let things get the best of us. 

So I need to make a point to have coffee with Jesus tomorrow.  Today, I let myself be to busy and restlessness take me over.

The child inside of me wants to create something beautiful everyday. I love to sketch, paint using watercolor or acrylics, photograph fun and odd things, sew or sculpture with clay. I also find it fun to blog and write about things that are relevant to me and my family. I pour countless hours of myself into my art because it is something I am able to escape in. I love to read books,write stories and illustrate stories. I am very passionate about my love for God. He has brought me through so much in my life: The good, the bad, and the ugly. It is because of his faithfulness that I am who I am today and all that I have is because of Him.
