A Cuppa’ Joe that is…
About a week after God told me He was going to heal me, I began to pray asking Him what this will look like.
I asked God what changes I needed to make in order to be healed, and I felt very strongly that he told me “coffee has to go”.
If you have been a reader here for a while you know i have a strong love for coffee. well more of a love for creamer in coffee but essentially it’s the same to me!
But just to be sure…
I drink coffee the next morning and, what do you know, I got super sick, like super, super sick… because adding the same word twice makes it way worse. Agreed?
I skipped the Cuppa’ Joe the next day and felt great. No stomach issues, no extra fatigue.
But to be really sure I heard him correctly, I tried coffee again. Before I could even finish the whole cup I was heading straight for the bathroom. (Sorry about the TMI.) For the next few hours my bedroom and bathroom became my hiding place.
So it’s settled, coffee is the first life change to happen if I want to allow God to heal me. And as of right now I’ve been coffee free for over a week and feeling great. I didn’t even suffer from massive headaches due to the lack of caffeine. I guess it helps when you use so much creamer your coffee is white–masks the coffee!
So now we need to rename our Friday coffee dates. hhmmm… Join me for lemon water? Let’s sip on tea? What ideas do you have?
Has God ever asked you to give something up in order to receive his full blessing?
