Psalms 40:1-4 NKJV
1 I waited patiently for the Lord ;
And He inclined to me,
And heard my cry.
2 He also brought me up out of a horrible pit,
Out of the miry clay,
And set my feet upon a rock,
And established my steps.
3 He has put a new song in my mouth—
Praise to our God;
Many will see it and fear, And will trust in the Lord .
Blessed is that man who makes the Lord his trust,
And does not respect the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies.
This morning was a very difficult morning. Morning devotion was disrupted by the screams of arguing kids upstairs, I forgot to put grounds in the coffee maker, so I poured myself a cup of hot water and the kids were late to school because I lost track of time.
On the way to work, I was planning on brightening up my morning by getting a nice cup of overpriced (decaf) Joe at Starbucks only to find that I left my money and credit card at home today. GRRRR…. Double Facepalm!
I finally managed to scoop up enough change to get a small coffee, and realized that I was acting like a crack addict! Was this one cup of coffee that important? Looking up, I decided to let God tell me what I actually needed. He gave me this:
Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.
– Psalms 37:4
A co-worker offered me a cup of their freshly brewed coffee, and it just so happened that they drink decaf!
