Why in the world would I name this blog “Smelling Coffee”?
“…the sweet aroma of the knowledge of Christ in every place” (2 Corinthians 2:14)
To me, the smell of coffee first thing in the morning signifies that it’s a new day, full of new possibilities, hopes, and joys… a reminder that God’s mercies are also new, fresh and awaiting us every morning (Lamentations 3:21-25).
No matter how difficult the day (or night) before, or what season of life we are in, or what storms are on the horizon, having coffee with Jesus and His Word each morning grounds me and fills me with joy! It is Jesus who makes the difference in my every-day-living, and I want it to be Jesus’ presence… His sweet aroma… that spills out of my life onto others.
2 Corinthians 2:14 says, “But thanks be to God, who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us spreads and makes evident everywhere the sweet fragrance of the knowledge of Him.” (AMP)
In this blog I’ll be sharing some of what the Lord is teaching me as He and I sip coffee together, as well as other posts about faith, family, food, fun, life, love, and living it all through the sweet aroma of the knowledge of Him in every place.
So…What is Smelling Coffee?
Its waking each morning to hope, new starts, the Lord’s mercy, His never failing compassion, and His abundant faithfulness for every moment of TODAY… this is “Smelling Coffee” – the sweet aroma of the knowledge of Christ in every place.
I’m praying for you, and pray that you, too, will carry the aroma of His faithfulness and love over you today…
