daily devotions… fresh each day… like coffee…

Daily devotions… commitments to pray… two thirty-day prayer journeys… one over half-way done… the other just five days in…

My attitude feels… stale… my heart distracted by other things to get to…

Lord… how do I keep these daily devotions fresh…? I want them to be a living part of my relationship with You… not a box to check… I want to be with You… pray in agreement with You… listen for You… as I pray through these thirty days…


Thoughts they turn to things I do each day… for family… for me… repetitive tasks to begin the day… beginnings on my mind because this is where I am right now… beginning my day… my spiritual tasks before Him…

Coffee… it sits next to my computer… warm… aromatic… fresh…

Each morning making coffee is one of the first tasks… a chore that doesn’t always feel like a chore… I enjoy the result way too much… even though it’s decaf… the warmth of the cup… the smell… taste… feel… of each swallow… is a fresh joy each day…

So today… I see… the need to approach these dailys with Him… these commitments I’ve made… as spiritual coffee

First things first… made fresh… a living… active… part of my daily day with Him…

Lord… help me keep it fresh… each day… in every way…
