Morning Coffee with Jesus - February 4,2010

Updated on February 3, 2010

 

Greetings loved ones!

 

Today's "Morning Coffee with Jesus" comes from Psalm 106:3: "Blessed are they who maintain justice, who constantly do what is right."

 

I am often amazed how God protects His children.  Yesterday was a perfect example.

 

I carpool to work with 4 other people.  Yesterday it was Don’s turn to drive and since Don lives only a few miles from my home, he picked me up at the house and we made our way to the park and ride where we picked up the remaining passengers.  Our ride home was uneventful; we dropped off the passengers at the park and ride and then drove the next several miles to the exit off the interstate which leads towards my home.  We were not off the interstate one minute that the car died.  Had the car problems occurred sooner, while we were on the interstate, we could have been stranded on the side of the road.  Had we remained on the interstate perhaps we would not have seen the smoke coming out of the engine and perhaps the car could have caught fire.  Any number of incidents could have occurred but because of God’s grace we remained unharmed.

 

That reminds me of Psalm 23 - "though I walk through the valley of The Shadow of Death..."  There are countless stories about people who have experienced their "darkest hour" - when they have walked through that valley of the Shadow of Death.  People who survive airplane crashes, people who made it out of the towers on 9/11, people who, by God's grace have skirted death and have come away from the experience appreciating life so much more and are determined to live it to its fullest.

 

For the Christian who is truly living as Christ would have them live, we can walk through the valley of The Shadow of Death and know in our hearts that God walks with us through it.  If we die along the way, we are united with Christ.  If we survive and maintain our integrity throughout the journey, the teachers; fear, disappointment, hope, take on a more appreciated role because they have indeed taught us more about ourselves than we knew before we journeyed.

 

Looking at each day as a new journey, set your mind on Christ and let him bring to you the teachers you need.  Yes, there will be dark hours.  Maintain your integrity at all costs and you will find that when the darkest hour passes by you, the light at the end of the tunnel will be more bright than you could ever have imagined.

 

Have an awesome day in Jesus.  Go MAD in someone’s life today!

 

Stay sweet,
stay broken,
stay His!

 

Blessings,
E.

      Elisa Yager, Great encouraging hub! How wonderful you were able to focus on the fact the car's engine problem happened later rather than sooner... Praise GOD!

      Thank You for sharing, Peace & Blessings!

      Yes, God is so good to us, protecting us, watching us, LOVING us and so often we are unaware of it all! Thanks so much for sharing this story with us on HP, Elisa!
