Morning Coffee with Jesus - October 7, 2011

Updated on October 6, 2011


Greetings loved ones!

Today’s “Morning Coffee with Jesus” comes from Galatians 4:6, “6 Because you are his sons, God sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, the Spirit who calls out, “Abba, Father.”

When I was a little girl, I would often accompany my mom and dad on shopping trips. This ritual was, for us, an opportunity to get out of the house on a Saturday afternoon. On occasion, my mom would tell me, “Wait in the car with your father.” Dread filled my heart. Oh no – I’ve got to listen to “his” music. ICK!!!

Yes, I admit it – I hated enduring the one hour (although it felt as if it was eternity!) stretch of time when I’d have to listen to the radio station that played the sounds of the Big Band era, not to mention my drummer-father who would pound out the perfect rhythm on the dashboard of the car. But I endured it and was very happy when I spotted my mom coming out of the door from the shopping center. Fast forward ten years later.

I was in high school and our music program had a jazz band that played (you guessed it) Big band music. Suddenly I was grateful to my dad for making me sit through those very long songs while he imagined himself sitting at the drum set pounding out a rhythm. I learned a lot about rhythm and great music but more importantly, a piece of my father was being drummed into my heart and soul with each note played on the radio and each beat he pounded out in the car. Although my dad has passed on to Eternity, those precious moments will remain with me for a lifetime and I can only say, “Thank you Daddy!”

I’m sure there are instances in your life when you have had trial upon trial befall you. It happens to all of us. When that occurs, do you complain and moan about your unfortunate circumstances, wishing only to be delivered from the difficult situation? Or do we resign our situation to God with a cheerful attitude and a thankful spirit? It is not enough to simply submit to our circumstances. We need to submit, cheerfully. Our Heavenly Father knows what he’s doing and for that we need to say, “Thank you Daddy.” Failure to do so means that either we deny the wisdom of God or we deny His goodness.

Have an awesome weekend in Jesus. See you back here on Monday for more “Morning Coffee with Jesus!”

Stay sweet,
stay broken,
stay His!

Blessings,
E.
