My Coffee with God...



Each morning I spend time in God’s Word. Either through a devotional/motivational, scripture verse e-mails, personal prayer book or journal scriptures. God is faithful to point out, very clearly, which one of these He would have me focus on for the day. I am obedient to this guidance and focus by His direction. 



I realize, these many, many months later that this new discipline has mightily improved my daily outlook and outcome: Here is my FB post this morning: 


Morning Coffee with God~ Spending mornings with God and His Word has mightily improved my daily outlook and out come. I am contemplating making a blog for this new part of my day! ♥ Father, I call to You in my days of trouble and You continually deliver me. I will honor&glorify You, alone. I rejoice, You draw me close… to You and out of the darkness. I confess&praise You, my Lord. Amen. Good morning loves♥
As the remnants of Hurricane  Ida, blow outside my window, this fine morning,  I feel no anxiety. The prayer above came from my prayer focus of late. Glorifying the name and personage of Father God. For this I have been using my personal prayer-book. Prayers that avail much written by Germain Copeland. I also  diligently pray only scripture.
The weather is a concern for us here in Hutchland, we are awaiting a new roof. This weather has, in the past, struck terror in my heart. Fear of my husbands angry tension, of damage…just fear of the effects of ‘mother nature’. Not to recently, God let me know that He had this issue in hand. My husband, a very different man these days, no longer stresses or gets angry at ‘mother nature’.
 God has confirmed that the fix is on the way, now it is simply a matter of scheduling. And Ida (or should I say, the enemy) would like for me to delay the scheduling by getting in to doubt and unbelief.
Therefore, I have come to a place, by grace, where I realize I am not effected in this situation, not emotionally or intellectually. I am amazingly peaceful here. It is such a blessing.



The Effect of Tropical Storm Ida

 The wind and rain of the last day have had no appreciable effect on our home or our outlook.  I must give all the honor and glory for this to God, alone.
As for me and my house we will serve the Lord. Joshua 24:15
These scriptures will help you pray in a manner that glorifies God according to the Word.

Welcome, I'm Andrea ... HOPEannFAITH ... I write and take pictures as a way of expression. These are gifts given by a loving and indulgent Father, to a headstrong and stubborn daughter, with much to say. A semi-retired social worker/secretary, I now call myself a writer. I've published one internet article and written many blog posts. However, publishing does not make one a writer, anymore than taking a box camera to the park makes one a photographer. What makes one who and what they are? Well God for one ... formed me before the foundations of this world (Psalm 139); and many, many years after putting away my passion for wordsmithing and picture taking He gave it back ... in droves. I am a culmination of my choices and experiences. It is here that my experiences color the world in print and color. It is my goal to reach just one soul a day with love ... encouragement ... understanding or just letting that soul know that they are not alone where they are today. This is about creating ~ all of it. Creating a HOLY and SACRED place where the ugly truth can be healed and the beauty of a moment or a tear can brighten a day for the experience. Why HOPEannFAITH? Hopeannfaith is my inner child, and she is maturing, as she should have done all along. She is learning all about how Faith fulfills Hope. She is learning how to live. HOPEannFAITH ~ the wonder twins all wrapped up in one, me. These are my Journey Journals ~ written and visual. I welcome your company. I welcome your friendships. My Journey is in the light ~ although I have and will share the shadowy corners and the dark ~ so you know that you are never alone there. If we hold hands in the dark, and we walk, side by side, through the shadow, we will reach the Light together. In relationship with one another and with the Light. Blessings.
