Shoe Matters

Monday Morning Coffee©

Happy Monday people!

Do you take offence when you visit friends and are asked to take your shoes off at the door?

Shoes are not just a fashion accessory in the literal sense; they represent our social standing and our background. Our shoes say everything about us.

Our shoes represent our pride, our values, our principles and our experience; the very things that the Lord wants to change!

The burning bush must have been quite a spectacle to behold, but Moses had to take his shoes off before approaching the miraculous. (Ex 3:4)

Today some of us approach God wearing our designer shoes, expecting preferential treatment and some in our dirty shoes and muddy boots in total disregard for His sacred presence!

This week if you expect to see the miraculous you will have to take your shoes off too!…..Even if they are Jimmy Choo or Loubs!

….Be humble.

Happy Reflection.

No Quick Fix

Monday Morning Coffee©

Happy Monday people!

It’s already one week into 2019. Oh my! How time flies!

Now while we all have great plans for 2019, one thing is certain, this is not the year for the quick fix. Don’t look for the shortcuts.

Walking with God is a process. He is not constrained by time and deadlines, He is not one of our tech devices and He is certainly not an App!

There is work to be done, so let’s roll up our sleeves. Some of us will need to march around our Jericho and some will be asked to walk on water. Our faith will be tested.

In another 358 days this year will also come to an end. Will we look back with joy, or regret?

Our God is a promise-keeper….This year don’t settle for Ishmael when you can have Isaac!

Happy New Year.

Excess Luggage

Monday Morning Coffee©️

Happy Monday people!

I am honoured to serve you your last Monday Morning Coffee for 2018! What a blessing!

Are you optimistic, ready to embrace the great things that 2019 holds? Or are you fearful of an uncertain future?

Today is a good day to appraise our priorities and offload all the excess baggage that will slow us down in the new year!

If we hope to make good progress in 2019 then we must be prepared to travel light!

Our bad habits need to go….(those sins that so easily beset us.) Procrastination is next on the list- the vision killer. Then we need a smaller friendship circle; discouragers, fault finders, and time wasters will cost us dearly on this journey.

Now what else do I take out?…..My own suitcase still can’t close!

Safe travels …. your future awaits!

Happy New Year!

Take Your Place

Monday Morning Coffee©️

Happy Monday people!

If Jesus was hosting a family dinner tomorrow, will we get an invite? Well since Jesus came from a lineage of family scandals, prostitutes, adultery and idolatry I guess we all stand a very good chance!

As is our annual custom, tomorrow my extended family will be meeting for Christmas dinner; three generations under one roof. Hectic! The best part for me is that I am not hosting it this year!

On a more serious note, beyond the glitter, presents and good food, whether we are spending Christmas with family or alone, Jesus has reserved a place for us at His dinner table, if only we humble ourselves, accept His invitation and sit down.

The invitation is personal! There is a seat with your name on it. So dress up!….Show up!….And take your place!

Merry Christmas!

Give the Right Gift

Monday Morning Coffee©

Happy Monday people!

It’s that frenzied expensive season again!…Christmas!

In our mad rush to get things ready we must not lose sight of the essence of the season.

The three wise men from the East came to baby Jesus bearing their own precious gifts. (Matt2:1)

Is there a present for Jesus under your Christmas tree too? What will you give Him this year?

The Lord is not expecting a gift of silver or gold. He wants a contrite rededicated heart, renewed commitment and reconciliation.

The Lord wants a changed life! Let’s make that our gift to Him.

Come on! ….. Wrap it up nicely!

Merry Christmas!
