Over Morning Coffee

Sparrows Feeding in Morning

Every morning, after I get dressed and my coffee is ready, I head to my little patio space in the back of my apartment  building and sit in the stillness.  This spot is where I begin my day with the Lord (except in the dead of winter).  Some mornings the skies are cloudless with a deep blue hue, other mornings are partly cloudy and some mornings the clouds are deep, dark grey because there is a storm brewing.  But, there is one constant… the little birds I feed year round.  As these little creatures sit on the feeders chirping and singing captivating melodies, I realize just how defenseless and harmless they are.  Then I am reminded of what we are told by Jesus…

“Are not two sparrows sold for a copper coin? And not one of them falls to the ground apart from your Father’s will.  But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Do not fear therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows. Therefore whoever confesses Me before men, him I will also confess before My Father who is in heaven.”   Matthew 10: 29-32

I rejoice in the knowledge of just how much we are loved.  He loves all of us so very much, it’s difficult to comprehend!  Yet it is REAL— and TRUE— and HONEST— and PURE!   Because we deserve it?  NO!  Because it is His character. 

  1 John 4: 7-10 says ”  Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. He who does not love does not know God, for God is love. In this the love of God was manifested toward us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through Him.  In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins.”

My prayer is that you know how much you mean to the Creator of the Universe, our LORD God and receive His love each new day with a thankful heart.

There is great peace and joy in knowing the Lord Jesus Christ as my Savior. I am blessed to serve our Heavenly Father through Him. Everyday is a new day to share the the glorious Gospel message of grace and forgiveness; the blessings of hope; the Father God's eternal promises; and the importance of living daily in the will of God according to the Scriptures, especially now with the world in chaos and uncertainty. My life before I asked God to forgive me of all my sin through the blood of Jesus Christ and I repented (turned away from it); was one of utter selfishness in all aspects of my life. I partied, I lived for ME and only me! Now, I live for Him, with great joy daily. I want to share the Gospel, encourage other sisters/brothers in Christ through prayer and do as He leads by the faith He's given through His abundant grace!

  1. Thank you, Stephanie

    Please be so kind as to save a spot for me… My days are so rushed these days, I hardly spend as much time with Papa as I would like. Your post brought back memories and longing…thanks for inspiring me. Tomorrow will be different.

    Thanks for praying for us too 🙂

    Blessings,

  2. God’s love is incomprehensible. There is NO way we can understand it – but praise God, we know the REALITY of it as we experience it.
    I think of the words of a song George Beverley Shea sang:

    Could we with ink the ocean fill,
    And were the skies of parchment made,
    Were every stalk on earth a quill,
    And every man a scribe by trade,
    To write the love of God above,
    Would drain the ocean dry.
    Nor could the scroll contain the whole,
    Though stretched from sky to sky.

    His love is never ending and always new.

    What an amazing God!
