A Coffee Break

I am taking a break from drinking coffee – for a month! So bear with me, my mind is a little fuzzy in the mornings.  Actually, it’s a little fuzzy all day! I started cutting down a couple of weeks ago, so I didn’t get the crazy headaches.  I am doing this because I’ve felt the Lord asking me to do this . . . hummm, for about a year now.  I’m not very quick to obey in this instance; probably because drinking coffee has become way too important in my life – again. Hence the break.

Lord, why does just drinking coffee have to be such a stronghold in my life? It took me a year to obey You! That’s a long time.

God’s Word to us: Sister, you want to obey, but you are afraid to obey sometimes. You don’t know how it’s going to go if you do it the right away.  You weigh all the options and plan a slow-to-obey process. A year ago I wanted to touch your heart in this area – again. Look not to your own desire but to My will. There are things I want to show you during this “fast” of coffee. In the end it will be a blessing! For now, we will wait through this fuzzy brain period. I love you. Thank you for obeying.

“Search me, O God, and know my heart;
    test me and know my anxious thoughts.
Point out anything in me that offends you,
    and lead me along the path of everlasting life.”

 Psalm 139:23-24

My Heart’s Cry for us is to be willing to do what God has called us to do even when it’s hard. And don’t be like me and wait a whole year to obey what you know He’s placed on your heart. Trust Him. The desire of our heart needs to be like this prayer: “Search me, O God and know my heart, test me . . . and point out anything in me that offends You.”
Are we brave enough to pray such a courageous prayer? It’s hard. Honestly, that kind of prayer makes me nervous. If our desire is a heart that is truly His, then we will allow Him access to the deeper things hidden there. Things that only He sees.
Now it’s your turn. Will you bravely pray this prayer? Fast what He is calling you to fast. In the end it will be a blessing.
On a lighter note, I hope by Friday’s post I’ll be able to think a bit more clearly.
Have a blessed week.
