A Morning Coffee Meandering
Most mornings I try to start out with a cup of coffee in the sunroom and think for at least a few moments and welcome the new day the Lord has given me before I hit the floor running. The house is empty, I am sitting here trying to not focus on all the little things I want to get done before I run out the door, and I am wondering about saying “good morning” to the Lord, God Almighty. I am sitting with my legs crossed, drinking a coffee and wondering … is this an okay way to talk to the Lord or should I fall on my face and lay prostrate before His Majesty? Am I the only one who worries about these kinds of things? In truth I do both-sometimes fall on my knees before the Lord and sometimes just have a cup of coffee with Jesus.
I think about the Lord God Almighty who sent His Son to earth and who now rules and reigns, but Who at one time walked among us, as one of us. I think Jesus loved hanging out with people. I believe Jesus would sit and have a cup of coffee or share a meal with any one of us. I am reminded of Aragorn in Tolkien’s ‘Lord Of The Rings’, who was known as Strider to the Hobbits and then to those who took the journey to destroy the ring of power. They did not realize the extent of who he was but finally saw when he was crowned king. Yet he was forever their friend. And he functioned as both king and friend.
I never want to forget Who He, Jesus, is: King of Kings and Lord of Lords, One Who was and is and is to come! We are told: “And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, ‘Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God.” (Rev 21:3) I believe the Lord loves when we meet with Him, whether it’s on our knees or sitting with a cup of coffee. I also believe that when He comes into His Kingdom, we will worship Him but also have ‘fellowship’ with Him, sharing, talking, eating, and laughter. Hallelujah!
