So glad you stopped by today! Pour yourself another cup of coffee, sit in your comfy chair and let God’s words soak into your soul!

Coffee Cravings is grande- sized God cravings for the soul through His word and truths. Today the word “courage” entered my quiet time as I continue to learn how God is present even when our courage seems to be absent.

Joshua 1:9 speaks so clearly about God’s command to be courageous in our lives.  The heart of this message is that we are never alone in our quest to be courageous for God. Take a minute and let God’s words fill you with truth.

Joshua 1-9

 Courage takes faith and stepping out in boldness

Courage comes from God who gives it freely to us as His children

Courage is taking your passions, lifting the dreams to God and allowing Him to bless the journey to their fulfillment

As a single mom, I understand what courage is but find myself asking often for strength to carry on in the battleground of life. The strength to overcome fear, heartache, loss and whatever else may come my way. I have never been let down and each time my cries have been heard.


when loss weighs heavy in your heart and you search for light to pierce the darkness

when wounds from past relationships will not heal

when daily life sucks away your energy and your exhaustion is like a puddle on the floor-seeping into every floorboard

when loneliness blankets you and you are left with a hollowness inside

God promises and provides all you need. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go. Joshua 1:9

Today I’m praying for all that God’s perfect strength conquers all your fears – that His perfect power overtakes your weakness and His perfect love takes away the ache.

9 But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. 10 That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.                                                                                                                                            2 Corinthians 12:9-11
