There’s Something About Coffee

Coffee comes with different blends. There’s the plain and classic brewed, the strong and eye-popping espresso, the creamy blend of cafe latte, and my all time fave the flavorful, mood-setting cappuccino.  All of these cater to our heart’s delight.  And no matter which blend you like, bottomline,  there is always a blend of bitterness and sweetness. And this very blend of bitterness and sweetness is what makes it a delight to every coffee afficionado.

Likewise, your life offers a blend of bitterness and sweetness.  One day, you wake up on a bright and sunny day, a day full hope and colorful memories ahead.  Yet some days could be gloomy and struggles seem to lurk around the corner.  Still, life offers you two choices.

When some days are not sunny, you have the choice to wallow and allow struggles to eat you up.  Or when struggles tend to overcome you, you have the choice to wrestle with them.  However, the good news is you don’t need to wrestle alone.  Know that He who is greater and larger than anything or everything is more than capable to overcome all the struggles that come your way.

Indeed, Jesus is more than willing to fight the battle for you.  But He would not do it unless you ask it in His name.  Jesus would not do it unless you put your trust solely in Him.

“Be strong and courageous, do not be afraid or tremble at them, for the LORD your God is the one who goes with you He will not fail you or forsake you.” – Deuteronomy 31:6
