CHANGE


During these peaceful morning moments, I wish Jesus would sit down with me and indulge in a cup of coffee. 

The fact is He is here. While Jesus may not be drinking coffee, and His voice is not audible, He is here. I need to learn to listen. It’s more than blocking out the noises of the world.  I need to quiet my heart. Lately I’ve been having trouble doing that. My spirit is restless. I think change is coming. And I’m not comfortable with that uncertainty.

Jesus faced change head on. He knew it was coming and He set His mind on going to Jerusalem anyway (Luke 18:31).

Change is inevitable but God promises to be with us wherever we go.

Deuteronomy 31:6

Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.”

Joshua 1:9

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”

 

While change may be a fact of life, another fact is God is with me and He doesn’t change.

Hebrews 13:8

Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.

It’s time to face the day. It’s time to be strong and courageous. It’s time to trust God.

Walk in His Light,

Julie

  1. I love the idea of having coffee with Jesus in the morning! It is such a blessing to be able to spend quiet time with Him before getting our hectic days started and we might just hear his still small voice telling us what His plans are for us today.

    • Shelly,
      The most precious moments of my day are before everyone else in the house is awake and I can spend time with Christ…just a cup of coffee and Christ. Oh, that is bliss. Good to hear from you. Spiritual Boot Camp is great!

      • Julie, I can relate! Those quiet moments in the morning are precious. Glad you are enjoying spiritual boot camp – it has been very rewarding to me as well. Blessings!

  2. Don’t you just love God’s Word? I love how he brings to mind the verses he would have us hear… just like sitting with a friend over coffee. Thank you for this post and for the reminder to LISTEN!
