Coffee With God I asked, why do we have such a difficult time reconciling with others when we have disagreements?  He said, Pause and punt. What?  Then he replied, Cry and laugh, sing and dance, bring on the band. I said none of this makes sense to me.

Marriage And Sexuality

Marriage and Sexuality

A friend asked this question.
“Today there is a lot of controversy over sexuality and the definition of marriage.  Can you help us understand why and what your hope is for your children in this regard?”
God said, “Watch the whales.”
“What whales?”
He said, “The ones in the ocean.”
I said, “I don’t live by the ocean. I don’t get it.”
Then he replied, “If you don’t live in it you won’t get it.”
I said, “I still don’t get it.
God said, “There is a war of condemnation going on in the world based on the value people put on sin. The only way you can stay out of the war is to not enter the battle. People attempt to sets the value and the price. Stay out of the battle, trust me with the war, and you will be amazed!”

What Is Light ?

What is Light

Coffee With God I said, as I look out of my window and watch the dark get buried by the light while the sun rises I wonder, what do you mean when you say you are a light to this world? He said, Cleveland, Boston, and everywhere between - there are, roads that connect many things of the dark and the light. I understand, but not clearly. He said, on earth roads connect dark and light, but through me there is only light and darkness cannot travel the same path. If you will follow me, you will be in the light and it will protect you when the dark attempts to enter. There will always be dark, but if you walk with me, you will know the light from the dark, and you will be amazed

Cheesecake With God And Julia Childs

I asked, "Why do we have such a large appetite for things of the world, while having such a small appetite for you?"  God asked, "What's your favorite dessert?" I answered, "Cheesecake with lots of chocolate."  He asked, "How does that make you feel?"  I replied, "Satisfied and full." 
"Why?", He asked.  I said, "I got what I wanted and got it right then."  He replied, "There you go! That's the human condition at it's best.

Rich Verses poor

Rich Verses Poor

Coffee with God. I asked God, why do some have so much, and some so little. He said, look out your office window. As I gazed at the beautiful fall foliage, I saw some trees reaching to the sky, some as if they where looking up to the tall ones, some robust trees, some wiry ones bent over appearing as if they where going to fall, little bushes looking as if they where playing underneath the canopy. What a beautiful picture! He said until you can see what I see you will never understand the beauty, and perfection of my creation. Then he said, you are a part of my perfection, and perfect in my eyes, and I love you just the same as any other part. He closed with enjoy my peace.

Unity And Love

Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with a heart of mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience, bearing with one another and forgiving one another, if someone happens to have a complaint against anyone else. Just as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also forgive others.And to all these virtues add love, which is the perfect bond. Let the peace of Christ be in control in your heart (for you were in fact called as one body to this peace), and be thankful.  Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and exhorting one another with all wisdom, singing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs, all with grace in your hearts to God. And whatever you do in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
