Just one cup please

Oh how I love coffee & more importantly the effects of coffee / caffeine on my body. It seems like there’s not a day that goes by that I don’t have at least one cup (probably more). And!, if I don’t get my cup, I get a little crabby (I wish I was the only one with this problem). It’s like my best friend, but one that doesn’t talk.

Many times, I’ve used coffee and many other food / beverage choices (knowingly & unknowingly) as a way to mask what I really needed – encouragement – or rather the real deal. You see, I’ve allowed myself to become so busy and focused on what it is that “I’ve got to accomplish”, that I had overlooked what was really important, friendships. Real, God inspired, relationships.

In Col 4:7&8 Paul refers to a man by the name of Tychicus, who is sent to the Colossian church. A man whom Paul sent “to you for this very purpose, that you may know about our circumstances and that he may encourage your hearts”.

This upcoming Harvest Conference will be a great way for myself, and I believe many others in similar situations, to be encouraged. Not only am I looking forward to have the Word of God shared, but I’m also excited about the relationships & friendships that will be built.
