so I sat savoring each sip of my coffee without sugar this lent and I had this random musing…
2 things I need so badly .. God and coffee. I try to think I can do without one and it doesn’t go very well. So I’m thinking about God and the similarities.
I know it’s not nearly the same but here I sat at nearly 4 pm drinking coffee after trying not to have any for 3 days and I could barely move or stay awake. so I gave in and felt my body awakening. It was saying ‘why have you deprived me’
I don’t even mind the lack of sugar.
Ah, this is only a small drop in comparison to how much my soul relies on continual prayer for it’s life’s breath.
So.. In my weakness I admit my great need for both. Thank you Jesus for the gift you give this sleep deprive person in coffee. In charity to my family, friends, neighbors I will continue to drink my coffee and reIny on Jesus.
Prayer quickens to soul, coffee quickens the body.
In my weakness you are strong.
