Two Cups of Coffee

2 cups of coffee. That's the Lord's cup on the left.

This morning I poured two cups of coffee even though I’m alone. Both now sit on my desk.

I recall the words of T.W. Hunt, the author of The Mind of Christ, “Sometimes when I’ve not felt as close to the Lord as I wish, I’ll pour a second cup of coffee and take it with me to my back porch. Setting the second cup down, I’ll say, ‘Lord, I just want to invite you to have a cup of coffee with me. This morning—today—I want more than anything to just visit with you.’”

I’ve never forgotten Dr. Hunt’s story. The act of that second cup doesn’t bring God’s presence to us. He’s already here. It simply makes us aware of this presence. That’s what fellowship is : enjoying being in the presence of Someone you love and admire.

It’s an early Louisiana morning.

I’ve got two cups of coffee.

It’s going to be a good day.

It already is.

Psalm 63:1 “O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee.”    (KJV).
