A God Appointment at the Coffee Shop

Yesterday after I picked up the “contrast” I am supposed to drink Monday, I went to my favorite coffee shop. I went next door to the organic/natural food store and got some Fiesta Lime Chicken Salad, returned to the coffee shop, and got a cup of black coffee, thus retaining my title of coffee purist.

I sat down at one of my favorite tables to enjoy a relaxing day. I had shared in a previous post about my idea of a bible study guide for people who have trauma in their past and or depression/anxiety with the theme of Jesus Understands. I got a lot done on the first section about 8,000 words, when one of the young women who works there came in. She stopped in to get a treat.

On her way out, I waved to her. She came over to my table. I should mention she is quite intelligent and has good taste as evidenced by the fact she likes my jokes. πŸ™‚

She had her little dog in her arms. I noticed the collar for the dog and realized her dog was her emotional support service dog. I told her I was glad she has the dog and that in my opinion dogs make great friends. She shared with me about how the dog can sense when she has anxiety and comes to her to sit on her chest. I shared with her why I understood and let her know whenever she sees me, that she knows I understand.

After she left, it hit me that at the same time I was writing a bible study guide for people with trauma and or depression/anxiety, I had a conversation with a young woman who struggles with anxiety. It seemed like confirmation for me.

God is always at work. He can give confirmation for us in many ways. We just need to be open to his guidance.

Thank you for reading. God Bless.

  1. Awesome post. Amen β€œGod is always at work. He can give confirmation for us in many ways. We just need to be open to his guidance.”

  2. I think that as you were tuned into what you were being guided to write about, so you were even more tuned in when the reality of the issue turned up with a face and a smile. God is good indeed.
