A Great Wedding Present

We received some AWESOME wedding gifts, however I would like to share one of our FAVORITES.  
...The Keurig B60...

Most days start with a cup of coffee- today: french vanilla, 
 and end with a Chai latte. Even Jason has been drinking the Chai!

More on my walk with the Lord:

This story was in the devotional yesterday.  Beth writes: "Imagine you've been living in an old RV so small you can't stand up straight.  There's clutter everywhere.  The lavatory smells, but you've gotten used to it.  Now imagine that you've been offered a brand-new home on a solid foundation with big closets and wide-open spaces.  You rev up the motor of the old RV and plow it right into the new living room.  A new place to call home! You settle back in your RV seat, take a deep breath and poise yourself to feel something fresh.  
But that breath tasted a lot like that old lavatory.  

In order to "overcome" the pit that you are in you must be totally free from it.  Many times people think that a new job, or new boyfriend, or anything new will solve their "pit problem", however they find that they have just carried that pit with them.  

Today Beth Moore had some great things to say about the pit, and how to recognize that you are in that place. 
You're in a pit when...
You feel stuck. You feel you can only have a kicking and screaming fit or submit.
You can't stand up.  You feel ineffective and utterly powerless against the enemy's attack.
You've lost vision.  The darkness impairs your sight. 

The pit you are in can cause you to feel ineffective against the enemy, and can ultimately cause the same feelings about the world itself.  The Lord has called us to proclaim his gospel to the world so that all might hear and be saved.  This can pose a problem when all they see is the pit you are in yourself. 

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come! 2 Corinthians 5:17

More on our journey next time!
