Morning Coffee - Take on the day!

"When Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus. But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me."   
Matt. 14:29-30

"Not by measuring the waves can you prevail; not by gauging the wind will you grow strong; to scan the danger may be to fall before it; to pause at the difficulties, is to have them break above your head. Lift up your eyes unto the hills, and go forward--there is no other way."

I need to learn to put my “assessing” tools aside.  I spend way too much time, measuring, calculating, figuring and making notes.  No wonder I have trouble surmounting obstacles; I never really tackle them.

Time to pour another cup of coffee and take on the day!



  1. I often have this conversation with my husband Sandy (he has a scientific mind also). It's hard for him to make a leap of faith, but I guess that is why God gave you two those brilliant minds, I'm sure He meant for you to use them. Perhaps He speaks to you through all that planning and calculating?

  2. Yes, Jane, I always think I can solve a problem by coming up with the right formula. I keep forgetting that God doesn't need/use formulas for his work! (-:

  3. Actually Sandy, God does use formulas and repeating patterns (that's kind of science isn't it?). That's why eschatology is so much fun. Have you heard of the book The Math of Christ? It scientifically proves that Jesus is who He is. Wonderful book to give to all those that say the Bible and faith are just illogical!

  4. Interesting post and comments!
