Morning Coffee with Jesus - January 28, 2010

Updated on January 27, 2010

Greetings loved ones.

Today’s “Morning Coffee with Jesus” comes from 2 Chronicles 7:14-15.  “…if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land. 15 Now my eyes will be open and my ears attentive to the prayers offered in this place.”

Every year around Christmas time, I receive a card from my friend in Arizona.  It is not a typical Christmas card; it is one of those photographs of her family.  Her family is large – she has five sons ranging in age from twenty-six to 14.  The picture she typically sends clearly indicates this is a closely-knit family.

In addition to the card, she also includes a note letting friends and family members living far away know how things are going for them.  At the end of her letter she always requests each of us send back a note telling her how her friends are faring in life.  She looks forward to hearing from me just as much as I look forward to hearing from her.  Year after year, I place the photo of her family in my Bible.  I have amassed quite a collection!  If I am carrying my Bible or reading it, one of the pictures falls out (which happens more than occasionally!) I pick up the picture and pray for Carol and her family. 

I also have a love letter that I read frequently - the Bible.  This particular love letter contains pictures – word pictures that form in my head while I am reading God’s love letter to me.  In my mind’s eye, I can see Heaven as it is described in Revelation, though I will not truly know what it is like until I am there.  But every so often I catch a glimpse and I’m satisfied with the image in my mind for the moment.  I get a sense of the “family” I will one-day share Heaven with, and am excited to see some people I haven’t seen in a long time, and meet those I’ve only read about or heard about but never met.  But the part of the love letter that means the most to me is the scripture mentioned above because it means that when I speak to God, He listens!

Have you read God’s love letter to you today?  If not, spend a little bit of time in the Bible and allow the Holy Spirit to reveal God’s word to your heart.  You know the saying – “A Bible that is falling apart is usually owned by someone who isn’t.”  My Bible IS falling apart and the more tattered it becomes the more meaning His love letter has to me. As pages fall out, I read them in their entirety.  I can’t wait to meet those I’ve read about for so many years! 

As you journey through your day today, remember that one day this world and everything in it will cease to exist.  If that were to happen tomorrow, where would you spend eternity???  Don’t leave that important decision to chance!  God’s love letter will tell you but you must read it to find out all the latest news!

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

Stay sweet,
stay broken,
stay His!

Blessings,
E.

      I was just meditating on that verse the other day! Perhaps God is trying to tell me something through you, Elisha! Nice work.

      That's a good way to remember friends in prayer, by having their pictures laced between pages in your Bible and praying for them every time it falls out. I like that. very nice hub. Bless you. Thanks for the coffee!
