Are you ready for our adventure
or should we have our tea first?
This quote, seen in the window of Mrs. Robinson's Tea Shop in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania, this summer makes me smile.
Sometimes we get started off on each day's adventure--no matter how mundane--without properly fortifying one's self for the day. I do this far too often: just strike out.
No breakfast? No problem. I am woman, hear me roar. (Until I run out of steam...) No time for prayer and best intentions for devotional reading? I'll 'catch up' later.
I don't want to live life playing catch up. Picking up the pieces I left behind in a rush. We only have one shot to begin today. Why not give each day's beginning our best--with a cup of tea or coffee in hand if desired?
Today's Sarah Young's Jesus Calling, a simply beautiful little book, reminds me:
Demonstrate your trust in Me by sitting quietly in My Presence. Put aside all that is waiting to be done...When you need to take action, I will guide you clearly through My Spirit and My Word...When you spend time with Me, I restore your sense of direction. As you look to me for guidance, I enable you to do less but accomplish more.
See Luke 12:22-26, Ephesians 6:12 and Proverbs 16:3
