One of my two ‘idols’ for the year is coffee. My ‘idols’ are things that God convicted me about that sometimes take the place of Him. Not in a literal sense, I haven’t started re-writing worship songs ‘How Great is My Coffee’. Just that if someone were to nonchalantly ask me to give up completely on drinking coffee… I wouldn’t want to do it.
That’s an idol, for sure.
So I’m working on not ‘needing’ coffee so much. So far, so good! This past week, I’ve really gone to God before each time I wanted to drive down to Starbucks. It works! It sounds silly, but all I have to do is go to God and say ‘God… do I need coffee right now?’. He hasn’t said yes at all in this past week, except for this morning!
And right now, my Iced Grande Coffee in a Venti cup with extra ice and no room or classic is absolutely fabulous. But… if someone were to snatch it off of my office desk. I’d be just fine :)
