Many people I know
need some amount
of caffeine each morning
to get their day off right.
Some are more dependent than others.
Does this look amazing to you?
Is it something you would love to have early in the morning?
There is something about caffeine
that tickles our brain cells
and gets them moving.
I, however, not being much of a coffee drinker have not formed
this habit and I'm o.k. with that.
I got to thinking about another dependency
many of us have developed.
One for the Word of God.
It goes great with coffee in the early mornings.
What could be better than those happy brain cells
being encouraged and exhorted into
praise and good works.
This is an area in which I need improvement.
When I wrote daily on my personal blog I was much
better about spending time in scripture as I studied
to write or to simply find something encouraging to share.
Lately with that morning ritual replaced by jumping right
into work I find that I miss it.
Apparently I was more addicted to spending time
with my spiritual caffeine than I realized.
I think I shall challenge myself to return to this
Still not sure about the coffee...
but you just never know.
For everything that was written
in the past was written to teach us,
so that through the endurance
taught in the Scriptures
and the encouragement
they provide we might have hope.
Romans 15:4 (NIV)
