Cold Coffee

It is 8:00 pm and I finally have time to sip on the same cup of coffee I poured this morning.

I can't complain. Life is great. I have a new baby, a loving husband and a cozy home. Juggling life can be hectic, but somewhere in the chaos I find peace.

But I haven't always.

I can remember in my early 20's having a never ceasing knot in my stomach. I was a worrier and I panicked- a lot! I never understood people who weren't moved by stress. I thought them to be lazy or unaware of the importance of having everything in place all of the time. Looking back, all of the things that I used to stress about just seem to always work out by the grace of God.

I'm learning the peace that comes from letting things flow and be. If I stay in communion with God, make known to him my praise and prayers everything has no choice but to be ok!

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. -Philippians 4:6

So sip the cold coffee. Don't worry about how cold it is, how warm you wish it was. Shoot, throw some ice cubes in it! Enjoy the moment. You'll find that it's just as good now as it was earlier!

The King is coming!

The same star that led the wise men to the baby King Jesus 2,000 years ago apparently has returned and will only be here for a few days. (See original article here)

What does this mean for the us? Well, I can't help but think about the star's original purpose which was to announce the birth of Jesus and lead worshipers to Him.

“Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews? We saw his star when it rose and have come to worship him.”  -Matthew 2:2

But why now?

Bright as ever in all of its splendor, I believe the star is revealing the same message. Simply put, "OUR KING IS COMING!" We don't have much longer. This world is not our home. Make a way for His presence in your heart, turn inward and prepare your soul. This is truly exciting! He's coming back again!
