Coffee and God: You Can Make a Difference

Coffee and God: Monthly Coffee Chats

Hey all!

It’s time for our last Sunday of the Month Coffee Chat where we talk about anything and everything that’s on our minds.

Today for me it’s giving, sharing, and asking.

“Ask and it will be given to you.” Matthew 7:7

Our time is valuable. Our resources are valuable. Our energy is valuable. That’s why putting in the time to study God’s word through Bible Study Fellowship and other Bible studies or on your own is so important. God wants your time. He wants your effort. He wants your resources.

Twice a year I post on donating to my blog. It’s a tiny button in the sidebar on the homepage of my blog.

DONATE HERE

This blog is a labor of love. It started inauspiciously over 10 years ago and has grown to what you see now. I spend a ton of time researching, compiling resources, maps, and facts–all with the goal of helping you know God more.

If you find anything here useful and helpful, a small suggested donation of $25 would be much appreciated, but feel free to give whatever God leads you to give–from $1 to $5 to more. There is also an option for a monthly contribution as well if you don’t want to do a lump sum. Clicking on ads helps in a very small way as well. Every little bit helps support this forum as it continues to grow. I have made big changes this year and your donation goes to making this site bigger and better and hopefully able to reach more and more people for God’s Kingdom. That is my goal anyways, as small as it is in the Internet world.

If you choose not to donate to me (perfectly fine!), please consider another charity close to your heart. We are so very, very blessed in the 21st century, and we are called to share that with others. Give of yourself, your time, your resources, your energy. Life is so much more fulfilling when you give away your heart.

Thank you in advance, and I look forward to what God will lead us to learn this year and many more to come!

Coffee and God: What’s On Your Mind Today?

Coffee And God Talks

One of my favorite gifts from God is coffee.  Another one of my favorite gifts from God is you!

Coffee and God: Last Sunday of the Month Coffee Chat

Last month, I began a series for the last Sunday of the month where we can just bear whatever is on our hearts. You can post today about anything. It doesn’t have to be about God. You can vent, tell stories, and take a coffee break. Say what you would if you were having coffee with your best friend (or me!). This is your place to just be.

My Coffee and God Thoughts of the Month

  • The last few months I’ve been struggling with my weight and hormones. I just want to be healthy and feel good.
  • I’m praying for my kids as they all go back to school. That they settle back in and do well in their studies.
  • I’m praying my body holds up to what I put it through every day.
  • I’m praying for more sleep. I currently average only 5-6 hours, and I need more.
  • I’m praying I can maintain all the demands on me: my jobs, my kids, my spouse, and all the other roles I fulfill. I’m praying for strength and energy mostly.
  • I’m praying I can figure out my diet as I age and as my hormones do whatever they feel like doing each month.
  • I pray for all of my animals (one of my kitties is in kidney failure and is dying), so hoping her last days with us are full of love, happiness, and are pain-free.
  • Finally, the world is on my mind. I pray in general for people everywhere, other nations, etc.

I hope you enjoyed my thoughts. I’d love to hear yours so share away! Follow me on Pinterest if you’re so inclined.

One final thought: remember your blessings and be grateful for what you have. Remember you don’t deserve any of it. Remember what you do deserve, and your day will be brighter!

God bless and have a happy week!

Coffee and God: Last Sunday of the Month Coffee Chat

Coffee and God: Sunday Bible Chats

As I’m sitting here brainstorming ideas for this blog, my coffee is steaming. Its delectable aroma and satisfying smoothness soothe me like little else in this world.

Like everything in this world, coffee is a gift from God. He wants us to be happy and what else gives us such daily pleasure as coffee?

Coffee and God: Last Sunday of the Month Coffee Chat

Most of this blog is all business: God’s business. We chat about Bible Study Fellowship’s studies and questions. We pray for one another here. We come here for help with our BSF questions as we seek God’s answers. We may even come here for poetry and inspirational quotes and the occasional book recommendation.

Starting today, I want to “lessen our load” a bit by providing a forum for idle chit-chat. The last Sunday of the month I’ll post what’s happening in my mind and you can post what’s happening in yours. About anything. It doesn’t have to be about God or spiritual attributes. This can be where you vent or share an inspirational story from the month or just take a “coffee break” and relax and read what others are thinking. This is your place to just be.

My Coffee and God Thoughts of the Month

Today has been dominated with thoughts of this blog as I am anxiously awaiting the start of BSF’s study of the People of the Promised Land Part 1. I created a Pinterest account and a page specifically for Bible Study Fellowship’s People of the Promised Land Part 1 study. I am brainstorming lots of ideas to make this site easier to navigate.

  • I want to add more links in the sidebar to helpful resources for you during the upcoming study by BSF.
  • I’m brainstorming post ideas before the study so we can all jump in running when Bible Study Fellowship finally begins again in the Fall.

Other Random Thoughts Running Through my Brain…

  • I’m enjoying the lessening of the sunlight and the darker mornings.
  • I’m looking forward to the massage I have scheduled later today.
  • I’m petting one of my kitties!
  • I’m praying this week is God’s.

I hope you enjoy this inaugural edition of Coffee and God and add your thoughts as you’re sitting with God over coffee on this amazing Sunday morning, enjoying his blessings and gifts in our lives that we so very often overlook.

Have an incredible blessed Sunday!
