So, I have a confession to make: Whenever life is rough, wild, crazy, confusing, troubled, anxious, worrisome...um and etc., I usually turn to two things. 1) Prayer and 2) Mochas.
Now, I recognize this is not the most Biblical of all remedies, but here's my thoughts on that: I'm talking to God and God created chocolate and coffee, so it's fitting that we chat over something He is responsible for.
It kind of makes sense.
Take today. I'm having a nerve-wracking day, to put it mildly. So, rather than handle this like the grown-up adult I'm supposed to be (oh come on. I'm 22. I can still count as a kid. Maybe not in restaurants, but that's beside the point), I drove straight to my local coffee chain this morning, passed them my gift card and left, happily losing my worries in a rich, chocolately blend of milk, cocca and espresso and conversing with my Heavenly Dad about what's going on.
Like I said, it may not be the most Biblical, but it works for me. Isaiah 30:15 says, "In quietness and trust is your strength." Why can't we be quiet and trusting while holding a mocha?
So, to all of you out there who are roughing it today, take my advice: Head to a coffee shop. Get a mocha (well, unless you're lactose intolerant). Then sit in your car and have a nice long chat with God.
I promise. It will help.
Have a great afternoon, everyone!
