Author Sallie Dawkins says ‘You can know the heart of God for your life’ P167,
Driving along the interstate through Florida last summer, I stopped for coffee. Coffee might help me stay alert, I thought. So, I diligently searched the roadway signs to find the nearest exit for a coffee shop.
I took the exit ramp and drove to a nearby shopping centre. The signs advertised coffee, but I didn’t see it. I went all along the front of the building looking for the shop and then drove through the shopping centre’s outer courts, determined to find it. Just as I pulled into the parking space, I heard Jesus say, if only you would look for Me this hard. If only my people loved Me more than anything else. If only my people loved Me more than coffee.
I read this story five minutes before I saw this week’s writing prompt, and I could not believe it. How God! This story speaks for itself, and I am challenged by it, especially as I love coffee. How about you?
Until next time, Leisa
