Coffee with God

I don't struggle with studying the word. Research comes easy and fun to me. Writing is something I do by my very nature. But listening... that talent is going to be hard earned in my life. But it's something I strive to have and am willing to work towards. Especially listening to God and what He has to say about my life. And so one thing I do to increase the listening talent is to sit in the morning and have a cup of coffee with God.

A word flipped upside down showed me a pit

Last Sunday our pastor spoke about unity, and while the entire sermon was worth repeating, I need to focus on what struck my heart near the end. He said in order to have unity you have to speak out loud what you feel inside. Seems simple, right? Of course, we all know sometimes it's hard to do. But what struck me was what he said but upside down. In order to have unity we need to believe others are speaking what they feel inside. And that's when I realized I really do not do that.
